Hopes, fears & fatherhood: Dads tell what makes a good parent on Father's Day 2022
This one's for the dads. Whether you have fond memories of time spent with your dad, time spent with a father figure in your life or you remember back to the time you first became a dad. This episode is for you.
USA Today’s James Brown and Music Journalist Saby Reyes-Kulkarni sat down to discuss the ups and downs, hopes and fears and expectations versus reality of parenting; including becoming a father after 40.
Reyes-Kulkarni shares the eye opening moment when he saw himself in his four-and-a-half year old daughter for the first time and what it was like 'arguing with yourself.'
Reyes-Kulkarni said of his daughter, "She's very particular. And I like it! Because I have an instant kinship with it, even though it's mostly directed at me."
James and USA Today's Tim Gardner discuss what it's like to have and raise twin boys, how priorities shift with children and how his father was a good example of fatherhood.
