Simmons' Strict Rules For His Kids

GENE SIMMONS is adamant his children will never "go off the rails" because they wouldn't dare to disobey his super-strict parenting rules.
The Kiss star has two kids, Nick, 21, and Sophie, 18, with his longtime partner Shannon Tweed and has brought them up to be extremely well-behaved.
Simmons admits he is a formidable force as a father, and prides himself on keeping his kids grounded.
He tells Britain's Daily Record, "My kids are both wonderful human beings. Nicholas is 21, Sophie is 18, they are both straight-A students, charming, well-behaved - because they are not allowed not to be. It is as simple as that.
"They are not allowed to go off the rails... The phrase 'wait until your father gets home' is good. Parents should never act like a friend to their children.
"I am not their friend, I am their parent and they are going to do as I say. There is no running to their room and slamming the door. That's my room. That's my door. Even the poop they poop out is the food I bought them. The air they breathe is my air. They're allowed to rebel once I kick them out of the house and they earn their own living."
And Simmons insists there will be serious consequences if he ever catches either of his kids drinking without his permission.
He adds, "If I catch them getting drunk once, if they don't tell me they are going to do it, they are going to find their Beverly Hills butts in the middle of a work camp in the desert."
