What is it like to be a dad? How would you respond?
  • How would you summarize what it's like to be a dad — or a parent for that matter?

  • Not so simple, is it?

  • This fun depiction of a father attempts just that. Fatherhood has ups and downs, crazy and calm times, and difficult and really fun moments. From fish funerals to young-love break-ups to "contact" sports, dads really have their work cut out for them. Read "Advice for all dads: How to step up to the parenting plate" for some guidance.

  • How would you respond if someone asked you what it is like to be a dad?

  • Having children and being a good dad takes effort, but most of all, it takes time.

  • Time for talking.

  • Time for playing.

  • Time for soothing wounds.

  • Time for teaching.

  • And, especially, time for loving.

  • As it says at the end of the clip, "Fatherhood: How much time do you have?" Spend time with your kids. That's what they really want and need. There's no regret to time well spent.
