Tiger speaks out in new interviews about how exactly he’ll explain his cheating to Sam and Charlie.
In a interview yesterday (November 18) on ESPN’s Mike and Mike radio show, Tiger Woods finally opened up about his infidelity and divorce from wife Elin Nordgren and said when the time is right, he’ll be fully honest with his children Sam, 3, and Charlie, 1, about his indiscretions. “I take full responsibility for my actions and will tell the truth,” Tiger said. “I will sit down and talk to them face to face-eyeball to eyeball.”
When asked how he thinks they will view the situation, he said, “My dad had always said to me that love is a given, trust and respect are earned. I will have to earn the trust and respect from my kid and that will take time.”
While the last year has been incredibly difficult on his family, Tiger said he’s in a much better place now and is actually thankful for what happened.
“If that didn’t happen I wouldn’t be as blessed and balanced as I am now I’m so much better now because of this last year,” he revealed. “Obviously it’s been very difficult on a lot of people especially those close to me, but it’s the best thing for me.”
Tiger continued, “I had slipped away from my core values and my upbringing. I’ve gone away from that. It took years of that but eventually it led me to where I was at. It wasn’t a very pleasant feeling and a good place to be. It didn’t feel balanced. Certainly it was very destructive.”
