Favorite Quote. A successful fatherhood moment. The day my daughter traded diapers for underwear. My daughter struggled through the potty training stage.  I read and learned about different strategies on how to help a child use the toilet. It took me about two weeks but the day she decided to wear underwear was a proud moment. Dad I admire. Tom Dowd, my Boy Scout Leader. I admire his commitment and steady calm guidance to his children as well as other boys who didn’t have a father figure in their lives.

Here is his life in his words.

I’m a dad of two children Olivia and Niel III and husband to my wife Ani.

I’m  the primary caregiver for our family.

Additionally, I am the communications coordinator for several non-profit organizations, active adult volunteer for the Boy Scout and I blog at Great Moments in Bad Parenting.

When I am not at home with my family I hike, camp and watch my favorite team, the New York Mets.

What I do well as a dad.

I comfort my kids well during emotional breakdowns they don’t handle well. I also make them feel safe and provide reassurance that I will always protect them from harm.

What I learned from another dad.

Kids don’t care what you do for a living but they care about the time that you spend with them.

Lesson learned from my child.

I don’t always need to be competitive with my kids. Sometimes it is okay to let them taste victory against dad because all my kids really want is my time.

  2. Need more dads like this with their girls and boys. Boys need that affection in Daily lives to show them it’s manly. Too many times men send off signals that showing love is a weakness. It’s a strength!

  3. You are absolutely spot on when you say ‘Kids don’t care what you do for a living but they care about the time that you spend with them.’ Kids don’t care much for the presents and much rather have our presence. Great post blog. Thank you.

  4. I love “what I do well as a dad” because it is so important to make a child feel safe. No matter what happens in a child’s life, the safety that comes from a dad is so comforting that it lasts a lifetime. I say this because my dad always made me feel safe and all these years later, I still feel it.
