Familytime-Dads

I spotlight my sons today who have chosen to become fathers. They are all loving dads who spent time with their children developing that most important of all relationships. Having missed the day to day interaction growing up with their own fathers because of divorce, I salute them for taking responsibility for this important role. Being an example to the next generation in our family and taking time to interact and be an influence for good in their children's lives is so important.

I also respect my son Brook's decision NOT to have a family.
He (left back), instead, seems to relish his role as "playful" uncle.

What a wonderful family ! Recent studies have shown that kids who spend more time with their dads have higher IQ .

Conclusive evidence has been found to prove that the vast majority of vaguely referenced statistics lack context.
