Our public portrayal of fathers has shifted during my life. TV fathers have ‘evolved’ from real people like Sheriff Andy Taylor, Beaver’s dad Ward Cleaver and Heathcliff ‘Cliff’ Huxtable, to cartoon dads like Homer Simpson and Seth MacFarlane’s caricatures in ‘American Dad!’ and ‘Family Guy.’
Donna Brazile
It’s only after the first six months that it really becomes fun for dads.

Adam Carolla
With so many forty- and fifty something mums and dads in Converse stalking the streets, I can see why there’s a slew of books about the menopause and middle age, the most recent addition being David Bainbridge’s plucky, glass-half-full meditation or, as he calls it, ‘natural history.’

Mordecai Brown

Most moms and dads, they want to be good moms and dads. But it’s an incredibly hard job when you are stressed out, when you are poor, when your life is in chaos.

As a kid, I know that most of my parents’ friends were because my mom made friends with them, and my dad went along. I know a lot of dads who do that. I think it just starts to happen with guys. In the case of my father, he was probably just too busy reading books about Titanic.

I told my parents I wanted to be an actress years before I wrapped my head around what my dad did for a living. It’s not easy to explain the job of the television journalist, especially when a lot of my friends’ dads had jobs that were a lot easier to explain, like a lawyer, a banker or a doctor.

Chris Rock
Mums and dads, if you’ve bought something that needs putting together, do it before Christmas. When the kids have gone to bed, do a little bit every night. Then on Christmas morning, they can actually play, rather than standing over your shoulder, saying: ‘Is it done yet?’

I also turn down what’s probably a good amount of coinage to be made out of playing dads, an incredible number of obnoxious dad.

It began to really eat away with me that in the '60s th

It began to really eat away with me that in the ’60s the federal government, desiring to help poor moms who were dealing with deadbeat dads, decided, ‘We’ll help: we’ll give a check for every child you can have out of wedlock.’
Louie Gohmert
I never saw my dad cry. My son saw me cry. My dad never told me he loved me, and consequently I told Scott I loved him every other minute. The point is, I’ll make less mistakes than my dad, my sons hopefully will make less mistakes than me, and their sons will make less mistakes than their dads.
James Caan
