Dwyane Wade appears on the cover of the latest issue of Jet Magazine which hits stands on today. In the issue Dwyane talks about fatherhood and co-parenting. He also touches on why he chose to take custody of his sons, his upbringing without his father and whether he thought he was a good husband.
On what kind of father he considers himself to be:
“I’m the kind of parent who asks my kids questions like what would be your ideal thing to do in the summer? This year it’s Disney World. Even though I make the final decision, I want them to feel involved. Not only in vacations but other things as well.”

He also explains why he decided to pursue full custody of his children:
“I didn’t set out to get full custody but I wasn’t able to see my kids the way I wanted and I’m not a parent who’s going to run away from his responsibilities. I was probably a terrible husband, but I pride myself on being a good dad.”
Wade hopes things will be different in the near future for the sake of the kids:
“It’s been six years and hopefully one day she and I can get to the point where it’s a lot easier than it is now to co-parent.”
