Wilkos, a former Chicago policeman, dishes out tough love to everyone from deadbeat dads to kids on the street.
He explains, Sometimes victims dont want to stand up on their own two feet and accept responsibility. Sometimes the bad guy turns out to be the good guy. Theres not always a happy resolution.
After work, however, it turns out home is where the heart and hard work is for Wilkos and his two young children.
He says, Ill definitely be a disciplinarian when they get older I dont want to raise spoiled kids.
But dont expect Wilkos new glamorous gig to go to his head.
He softens up, and says, I dont care about going out to nightclubs, I care about being home with my wife and playing with my kids.
The Steve Wilkos Show premieres September 10.
