    One of the best things about this is THE TV IS OFF THE ENTIRE TIME.

    As for my own dad... he was emotionally fucked up and abusive.

    What a terrific dad!

    No, my dad did not (to the best of my memory) ever do anything like that with me.

    And, yes, it's terrific that the TV is OFF!

    If you are the kid in the video -- definitely CREEPY!!!

    If you are thinking the father is a terrific man and you, as an unrelated man, would like him as a sex partner, life partner, boyfriend . . . no, he is a great dad, so he would be a great boyfriend/partner, etc.

    That was sweet. I have no idea if my daddy was like this when I was a toddler. He made sure I didn't starve to death and had the basic necessities of life but not much more than that lol.

    When my son was young, my ex would always sing 'Cat's in the Cradle' when he'd want to do something and I didn't really. I spent a lot of time with the kids and now I look back, with tons of VHS videos of them, and I'm thankful I did.

    Cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon, little boy blue and the man in the moon, when you coming on dad, I don't know when, but we'll get together then.

    They grow up fast, just ask anyone who has kids and especially those who missed out spending time with theirs. The lawn, laundry and working out will wait but the kids never stop growing.

    That's sort of true. Unfortunately most of us gave into 'kid' food instead of teaching our kids how good nutritious food can be. Most dads tend to gain weight despite their running around, it's all about poor diets.

    I had both a nice Dad and a nasty Dad, or so I perceived it as a child. Nowadays I try to remember more of the nice Dad. But I know he worked very hard for us, and tried his best, nothing inherently mean about him, no terrible vices, not an absentee father, a man with a good heart. So that in many ways I had a great childhood, never wanting for anything (aka being spoiled).

    He tried to play sports like baseball with me, but I was a dismal failure. Took me to Yankee stadium all the time, a box at first base, I even got to meet many of the star players of the 1950s, but I wasn't interested. I'm afraid I disappointed him, not the son he expected to have, my sister actually a better son than me.

    He could be cold & aloof, not able to show much affection to me, seldom approving or praising. It may have been because he lost his own father when he was only 8 (in 1919! ), leaving him without a fatherly role model very young. Plus he came from a much earlier generation, and indeed all 4 of my grandparents were born in the 1800s, so both my parents weren't very far removed from those very old-fashioned values & customs.

    For instance, he wouldn't play with my toys with me, like that father in the clip, would never get down on the floor to be at my level, not participate in my make-believes. He never owned a pair of jeans, always wore long pressed trousers, a tie every day except on summer vacation or when gardening, very formal. He'd be 101 today, and I wish he were here, I'd have so much to tell him, so eager to show him all the new things, he had a very inquisitive mind, always curious about everything.
