MOMOA'S ROLE AS A PARENT

As a dad, Momoa knew he had the obligation of raising his kids right. To achieve that, he employed a series of purposeful, sometimes extreme parenting tactics. The actor has been open about his passion for being a father.

Having grown up without a dad, the actor faces challenges with raising his son because he never experienced what it took to be a father.

Over the years, the icon has learned that connecting with his son was all it took to reach out to him. He also made a point of raising his kid to be "vulnerable and open."

He participated in climbing, art, and skateboarding, all of which bestowed on him a mental fortitude and health, molding him into the man he is.
