Elton John reveals that he still struggles with trauma from childhood and can ‘explode at any moment’



Legendary entertainer, Sir Elton John has revealed he still struggles with the trauma of his childhood.



The 74-year-old singer said the trauma of his childhood inspired his parenting style to be the polar opposite towards his own children. Elton who shares sons Zachary, 10, and Elijah, eight, with husband David Furnish, said they are being raised to be ‘loved every second of the day’ and not fearing their parents like he did.



In an interview with Guardian, he said;




‘We never hit them or lose our temper with them. When they’re bad, they lose their pocket money, or their electronic stuff for a week – but they don’t get punished physically or mentally.

‘We talk it through with them. And they’re very happy children. I was always afraid of my parents, and I didn’t want my children to ever be afraid of me.

‘They’re going to feel embraced and loved every second of the day; they’re not going to be beaten and have those scars for the rest of their lives.’
