Billy Ray Cyrus opens up about his mistakes in parenting.
The celebrity dad has been making the rounds to the morning talk shows apologising for making the negative remarks to a magazine, claiming that "Hannah Montana" ruined his family. He explained yesterday on 'Good Morning America' that he was in a very dark place when he gave the interview and he didn't mean those harsh words: "I love Hannah Montana. I love Disney. I wouldn't change anything."
He also admits that he has some regrets about the way he has fathered all of his kids: "I did kind of approach being a dad as a friend. I was a great playmate. I mean, for teaching [my children] how to camp and build fires and ride motorcycles and four-wheelers, and horses, and all those fun kind of things. I was really good at that. As far as sitting down and doing algebra and science, the homework, I wasn't very good at that. So I look back on it and think, 'You know what? Maybe, no doubt, I could have been a better dad.' "
Despite all of it, he says he still wants to be Miley's friend and the person she comes to when she needs to talk.
