Give us a single word/line that encapsulates what fatherhood means to you.
Fatherhood = learning things you should have learned when you were little.
Are you a different father today than what your father was? How? In what ways are you similar?
I am similar in most ways than different. I try to be available as much as possible, and play and hang out when them as opposed to actively teach them something. In terms of being different, I am a lot stricter than my dad was (in terms of bed time, dislike for anything wasted, etc).
How would you describe your fathering style?
I don’t know which styles are there, but I tend to leave them alone for the most part and let them decide what they wish to do and how. I tend to focus more on making sure the lens they view the world is through a set of values which I have learned are important regardless of what they do.
Has fatherhood been as you expected it to be? If no, what was the biggest difference between your expectations and reality?
I did not have any expectations actually. I still don’t. I tend to be more of a here and now person, so I tend not to think too far ahead.
What is the most important lesson that fatherhood has taught you?
I have learned to be a lot more patient than I ever was and I’m still learning.
