Fatherhood Meme

As it's Mothers Day we've been sharing our thoughts on Motherhood, thought I'd ask Chris to answer the same questions on Fatherhood!  In the meantime, any other fathers want to join in?

Describe fatherhood in three words
Blessed, responsibility, challenging

Does your experience differ from your father’s? How?
The gender roles are blurred compared to my parents generation. Today men are expected to do everything that a woman does, barring breast feeding.

What’s the hardest thing about being a dad?
Trying to make sure I do the right thing by them and tough love. Being a dad isn't tough, it's a privilege a number of men don't experience.

What’s the best thing?
My kids

How has it changed you?
Made me think of my kids needs before me.

What do you hope for your children?
Health, happiness & confidence

What do you fear for them?
Over population, lack of one to one direct contact because of social media and anything that can harm them.

What makes it all worthwhile?
Seeing how these little people develop and the joy of sharing my life with them.


  1. Going to see if I can persuade Big Cook to have a go at this....

    1. Its had more views than my motherhood one! Interesting to hear their ideas, more succinct than ours funnily enough!
