I Want to be a TV Dad June 23, 2007

Filed under: Fatherhood — Jason @ 12:11 am

TV dads have it all. They’re rich, smart, successful. Cliff Huxtable, Jason Seaver, Andy Taylor. Seemingly there wasn’t anything they couldn’t do, say, or teach.

Is that possible? Is it possible to be that good of a dad without the help of a team of writers, directors, and cameramen?

I certainly hope so. I guess the answer has to be yes, doesn’t it? How do you become so wise? How do you know what you’re supposed to be teaching your child, especially a boy, to become a successful person in life? I don’t even have the answer for that myself, let alone the ability to communicate that to someone else.

I am scared that I will not be able to teach the lessons that need to be taught.

The father who does not teach his son his duties is equally guilty with the son who neglects them.
-Confucius

Lord, what have I got myself into…
