Ryan Reynolds is paying attention to his parenting mistakes knowing that these carry golden lessons that will benefit him as a father of three daughters.

In his discussion, “Creativity at the Pace of Culture” at Journal House in Cannes on Tuesday, the movie star said raising three “wild” daughters and the “brutal mistakes” he makes as a parent gives him more inspiration and insight compared to any of his “successes” in Hollywood or in marketing.

“I’m a parent of three girls. They’re wild. I think they have rabies sometimes,” he said in the event as per a report by Page Six. “I’m like any parent – I’ll have a moment where I’ll just snap. It’s not so much what you do in the moment that’s interesting, it’s what you do afterwards,” he added.

The “Free Guy” star said he makes sure his daughters learn from their mistakes.

“I used to tell my kids, ‘Don’t waste your mistakes,’” he said. “When you’re making mistakes it’s easy to sort of be absorbed by shame and sort of this idea that you’ve done something wrong, but you also have to look at it critically and use it as a stepping stone to learning something profound.”

Reynolds and wife Blake Lively share daughters James, 7, Inez, 5, and Betty, 2.

The 45-year-old actor also told the audience that he is “grateful” for his father’s “parenting mistakes.”

“He made a lot of mistakes. Some I’m grateful for,” he said.

Reynolds earlier described his father as "the toughest man alive: a former cop, former boxer and full-time landmine."

The actor also told the audience that he walks his daughters to school each morning and that he is pleased they are back to regular school because “Zoom school” during the pandemic was a “tent circle of hell.”

Reynolds also launched on Tuesday, a new nonprofit organization - The Creative Ladder, that will train and connect students with creative backgrounds to employers.

“I love making ads and want to help make sure talent of all backgrounds have the access and information they need to succeed. Ads are just another form of storytelling and a more representative workforce will only make this industry stronger and enable it to tell better stories,” Reynolds said in a statement published in Variety.
