Fatherhood – A Tough One.. Being a Dad is no walk in the park. Often it seems, no good deed goes unpunished, as they say. After stumbling through 26 years of parenting and striving to overcome my fair share of ineptitude, I think I have come upon one key to successful “pop-hood”: STAY. Stay connected, stay interested, stay involved. No matter how old they are, how much they say they don’t need you, how little they seem to care – ignore all that and just – STAY.
While we are on the topic, here are a few TV Dad’s that could use some help themselves:
1. Ned Stark, Game of Thrones – Proud, solid, decent. A family man. Got his head chopped off.
2. Walter White, Breaking Bad – Steals. Kills. He does cook, so there’s that.
3. Frank Gallagher, Shameless – “I would be crying too. If I wasn’t so high.”
