London: Hollywood actor Mark Wahlberg says he finds it difficult not to spoil his kids, but says they understand the value of things.
The 40-year-old, who has four children with wife Rhea Durham, said he wants his children to have all what he didn`t when he was young, reported Contactmusic.
"I do spoil them to a certain extent but they also understand that not a lot of people have this life. My kids like giving back. My daughter`s always telling me: `Pop, I`m going to take these toys to the hospital for the sick kids and the less fortunate`.
"They still live in the real world but it`s a fine line. I certainly want my kids to have everything that I never had but you also want them to appreciate the value of things. I worked hard to get what I have and I still work hard every day," Wahlberg said.
The actor thinks fame and fortune haven`t diluted his working-class attitude.
"Obviously, I am still the same at the core. Just because you have money doesn`t really change you. Listen, I`ve always thought that at any time it could all go away and I could end up right where I came from. I have a lot of people keeping me grounded: my wife, my mother and my friends," he added.
