Mark Cuban fears his kids will become 'entitled jerks'

Billionaire Mark Cuban doesn't want his kids to grow up to be "entitled jerks."

The outspoken Dallas Mavericks owner told WFAA that he wants to instill the right values in his three children.

"I try to push them to have confidence in themselves and not to take anything for granted," he told the ABC affiliate station. "And try to be good people. You know, that's my biggest fear -- that they grow up to be entitled jerks."

Cuban said he and his wife Tiffany spend a lot of time discussing how not to raise their children. After worrying about their health, Cuban's greatest fear is that they will become spoiled.

The "Shark Tank" star and his wife are "super protective," he said. Adding, "I am literally the parent that says, 'Oh, they have to learn how to deal with these things while we are here, while we are around them, so that we can see them make mistakes.'"

The self-made billionaire also wants his kids to know that money isn't the solution to life's problems. He said his children will have to earn their own money.

"I don’t want to be able to fix [my kids’ problems] that way. I want them to be able to fix their own problems."
