Pop diva Madonna says her older children are more “challenging” to parent than her younger ones. The singer, who has Lourdes, 20, Rocco, 17, Mercy, 11, David, 11 and five-year-old twins Stelle and Estere, says it is tougher looking after her older kids because they need more “guidance” as they transition into their adult years, reported Femalefirst.
“Lola has a different father than Rocco, and I have four adopted kids, so there’s a lot of outside influences. I’m trying to make sure I impart the same wisdom and love to everyone. I had this funny notion that when your children get older, they learn to take care of themselves and it gets easier. But actually, the older they get, the more challenging it gets – because now they’re becoming adults, and they really need guidance,” Madonna says.
