For all his wealth and international fame, David Beckham still values a good work ethic. 

And his kids will, too. 

Beckham, a global icon, revealed on The Late Late Show with James Corden that when a then-14-year-old Brooklyn Beckham wanted a bit of spending money, instead of reaching into his deep pockets, Dad sent Brooklyn to a French cafe to work. 

No, really. 

Not only did the elder Beckham teach his son hard work, he also taught him a valuable lesson in dating at a young age: Dad is always watching. 

He said that his son's first date was spent with the Manchester United legend sitting just five tables behind him. He also warned that when his daughter is of dating age, he'll be much closer.
