Chris Pratt may be known as the fun guy, but when it comes to parenting, he's also pretty strict. The actor appeared on Live With Kelly and Ryan to promote his new movie, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and he shared some sweet insights into his relationship with his son, Jack.

"I'm probably the strict parent, but also pretty loving and affectionate as well," he said. "I think you've got to get respect, do what you say you're going to do, and make your kids toe the line and all that stuff. But at the same time, you give them lots of hugs and kisses."

Oh, and if you're anything like Chris, you might also give your kids a pet lizard on a leash! Check out the clip above to see little Jack with said lizard, then watch Chris tell a hilarious story about their father-son fishing trip.
