The `Thriller` star was known for his eccentric behaviour before his death last year, but his three children, Prince Michael, 13, Paris, 12, and eight-year-old Prince Michael II, known as `Blanket`, insist he was just a normal father to them.
Paris said: "I kind of felt like no one understood what a good father he was. He was the best cook ever. He was just a normal dad, except he was the best dad. He made the best French toast in the world. He just made the best breakfasts in the world."
Paris also revealed the `Bad` singer - who avoided sunlight where possible because he suffered from the skin condition Vitiligo - used to enjoy walking along the beach with his family. She also spoke of the love of art she shared with her father.
She said: "We were in Bahrain, and we used to wake up early and walk on the beach.
"Sometimes he would take me to a museum, because we both loved art. We`d play tag outside. He got us Kenya [their dog] four years ago."
Although he was a loving parent, the kids admit he was quite "strict".
Blanket explained his older brother Prince "could get away with anything" but their father was tougher on him.
The three siblings - who are now being raised by their grandparents Katherine and Joe Jackson since their father`s death - also claim Michael`s attempts to shield them from his global fame when he was alive failed.
Paris explained during a TV interview with Oprah Winfrey: "He tried to raise us without us knowing who he was, but that didn-t really go so well."
Katherine admitted the children have found it difficult to adjust to the loss of their father but praised Paris for being "strong".
She said: "What they talk about is, `Daddy would do this and daddy would do that.` Or, `That`s how Daddy did it.` Paris is very emotional. She talks about him all the time. She`s the strong one. All the pictures on her wall in her bedroom are of Michael."
