Taking The Step From “Father” To “Dad”
When I was growing up, I had a Father who believed that his role was to be a provider. His job was to put the food on the table (and for that I am grateful), but he didn’t believe he had to be a participator, and for that I am sad.
Today’s Fathers are being asked to be Dads. What’s the difference? Well, some time ago, a very wise man told me a story*:
A Man came home from work late again, tired and irritated, to find his 5-year-old son waiting for him at the door. “Daddy, may I ask you a question?”
“Yeah, sure. What is it?” replied the Father. “Daddy, how much money do you make an hour?”
“That’s none of your business! What makes you ask such a thing?” the Father said angrily.
“I just wanted to know. Please tell me. How much do you make an hour?” pleaded the little boy.
“If you must know, I make $20 an hour.”
Looking up, the boy said, “Daddy, may I borrow $9 please?”
