It’s not unique when parents play with their kids. Parents love their kids, they love to have fun. It’s the norm, it’s not an outlier, so stop treating dads who have fun with their daughters like they’re a circus side show, or patting them on the head with “you’re such a good dad.” We’re parents. We love our kids. There’s nothing outlying about that.
My latest essay for the Calgary Herald Neighbours section explores a new definition of being a man. There is a move afoot to change the face fatherhood. What it means to be a modern dad is very different to this generation of parents.

Every 2 or 3 months we get a family movie in the theatres for us all to see. Next on our list is Frozen (we skipped Free Birds because pizza for Thanksgiving doesn’t sound right). After you see the movie, enter to win a trip to Norway!
