Deddy Corbuzier’s close relationship with his only son, Azka Corbuzier, is no longer a secret. Recently, Azka revealed that one of the things she admires about her father’s upbringing is the freedom it gives.
“My father gave me a lot of freedom. I can do basically anything,” he said, quoted from the PUELLA ID YouTube channel on Sunday, September 5, 2021.
In fact, Deddy also allowed Azka to taste alcohol even though he was still a minor. However, the former mentalist told Azka in advance the negative effects of alcohol. Now, Azka admits that he never drinks alcohol again because he doesn’t like it.
“I used to be like, ‘Can I try drinking alcohol?’ And my dad said, ‘Okay, but just so you know, this is a really bad thing. Don’t blah blah blah.’ But I tried to drink, I don’t like it. That I never drink again,” he said.
Not only that, Deddy Corbuzier also allows Azka to try many things, as long as it remains under his supervision.
“Dad loves you but says everything ‘This is not good, what is this, what is this.’ But if you really want to try, ‘Try this, but with me, with Papa’.”
Responding to his father’s upbringing, Azka Corbuzier himself admitted that he was surprised by Deddy’s attitude. This is because many parents out there choose to ban their children without providing an informative explanation.
“The way he raised me made me ask ‘why?’. Because usually when other people say, ‘Hey Pa, can I drink this?’ maybe they say ‘No!’ But Papa told me why so I know why. There were some kids who were like, ‘Oh I can’t drink this, but I don’t know why’.”
Cinta Laura, who was talking to Azka Corbuzier, also said that what Deddy Corbuzier did was an example of authoritative parenting.
“If it’s authoritative” parents it is like Deddy Corbuzier who gives his children freedom, but always explains with open communication. ‘Oh okay you tried it, but this is the consequence… But there are also authoritarian parents out there where there is only one way to communicate. So if Papa or Mama says this, you have to do this.”
