    This guy's almost a complete moron. I would say he probably represents about 20% of American "fathers." It's more like a stand-up bit? Every father I happen to know is totally, totally into it. If neither parent really wanted the child, but had it anyway, that's where you see bad, or non-existent, fathering – and really, really bad mothering, too.

    Did a man post this? I really can't believe that any self-respecting father would. Happy Sacred Male Archetype Day.
    Dads totally rock!

    yeah, this coming from the guy who calls himself "yogasamurai." You can't make this stuff up.
    This piece was really funny, and touching, honest, and true. Sorry if everyone else isn't a spiritual superman, like you. If only we all could, awesome spiritual guy!

    OMG…this is amazing! So honest! And yes, people do judge as they walk by, not just the dads, moms too…:-) They know nothing of what is going on yet they pass a judgement based on the split second they see you… Kudos to you, great dads, mistakes and imperfections and all…we are all in the same boat. Happy Father's Day!
