Not beating around the bush in the slightest, Peter began by saying: “They just need to get over it!”. He went on to explain that he was unable to talk to his parents about certain things due to his strict Greek upbringing - and he wanted a different relationship with his own kids. 

He also explained his hesitancy of giving his daughter, Princess her own phone, worried that she could fall victim to sexting.
