Motivational Speaker Rendon Labador revealed that his father was a former general of the Philippine National Police (PNP).
In an interview with Ogie Diaz, the controversial influencer said that as the son of a former general, he was raised in a disciplined and strict household.
Being raised by a general made Rendon believe he was competent enough to educate the public.
“Marami po akong pinagdaanan, anak po ako ng general, PMAer, kaya matinding disiplina ‘yung in-instill samin ng mga magulang ko,” said Rendon.
He also revealed that he was taken care of by an ex-convict during the time when his father was very busy with his duties.
“Pinaalaga niya muna ako sa mga kamag-anak ko, lumaki ako ng walang magulang. Tapos by the time na kinuha na nila ako, ang nag-alaga naman sa akin, ex-convict, ‘yun yung yaya ko,” he said.
“Dati ‘yung mga preso na nagbago na, nakalagaya na at iniwan ng kanilang pamilya, nandoon sa presinto, taga timpla ng kape, tagalinis, doon na natutulog, ngayon si erpats naman nakita na totoo na na nagbago na itong tao na ‘to, so kinuha niya para alagaan ako.
“So imagine ‘yung experience ko nung bata ako, utak ng kriminal, sa pulis. Nakita ko lahat kung paano mag-isip ‘yung tao. So ngayon gusto kong i-share ‘yung mindset ‘yung tapang ‘yung perspective, baka kasi makatulong,”
