In what way is your parenting style similar to your dad and what way is it different?

On The Show

The Lunch Break hosts, Art Eddy and Jon Finkel weigh in on this subject. The audience shared a lot of great things during this show. We love seeing all of these fantastic dads talk about being there for their children.
Here is what our audience said: Juan LeanosMy Dad works as much as he does Now, But he spends so much time with My kids compared to How much he spent With My brothers and Me. I do everything with and for my kids Single Dad though. Jason Martin MejiasI’ll get serious here….I am more affectionate than my dad ever was. He was great but just not part of his culture or his own upbringing. Alex Zavala I try to learn from some of the mistakes my parents may have made or were not able to do. I try to keep them busy, idle hands…I also try to be present as much as possible. We have also put our 14 year stepdaughter in counseling. She is learning to deal with things in her past. I try to be more present. I have 5 yr old and 14 yr old girls. I’m a ballet and cheer dad! Chris Topher I’m a single father and didn’t have a father figure in my life donnie i try to be the father I wanted in my life … fair but tough love. Thomas RekTime has become more valuable then what 40hours a week is worth in average dad life. How do we fix that!
