Dads of Point Cook: Darren

In the lead up to Father’s Day, we wanted to get to know some of the awesome dads who work at our centre. We asked 14 dads to share their stories with us & now we’re sharing them with you.

We caught up with Darren from Mister Minit , Dad of 3.

What’s the best Father’s Day gift that you have received?:
Pretty much everything that my kids have made for me from scratch. When you’ve got three kids you get a collection of everything.

What has surprised you about being a dad?
The love that kids give you. It’s hard to describe really, it doesn’t matter what you do, they still love you, I find anyway.

The best piece of parenting advice that you’ve received?
Run away……..nah just kidding.
Go with the flow.

What’s your biggest hope for your kids?
That they grow up happy.

Do you have a good Dad joke?
I’m more of a when the situation arises, the joke comes out. Something happens & there’ll be a joke for it, that’s how it’s always been with me.

Who’s a dad that you admire?
I’d have to say my old man. He’s always been there for me, even though I thought for ages that he didn’t care, behind the scenes he did, always.
