Wayne Rooney has opened up about how he disciplines his kids.

The 30-year-old, who is dad to Kai, six, Klay, three, and Kit, eight months, with his wife Coleen Rooney, said they used to use the “naughty step”, but then realised it wasn’t working.

“I think the right way to deal with your kids if they are being a bit naughty is to talk to them,” Rooney told Femail as part of the NSPCC’s Christmas campaign.

“Talking to them can always help a lot more than smacking them. It’s so important.”

Although he did admit he is the “bad cop” parent in the family.
