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 Jenkin form Point Cook Eyecare, dad of 3.
What’s the best Father’s Day gift that you have received?:
I think my Darth Vader slippers. But anything from their school stalls is pretty good. Anything they give is special.
What has surprised you about being a dad?
How quickly you forget the time before they were born. Dinner dates & that sort of thing are in the past.
What’s your biggest hope for your kids?
That they’re happy & successful in life, whichever avenue that it takes them.
The best piece of parenting advice that you’ve received?
I would say you’re going to be given a lot of well-meaning advice, some good, some bad. Just take what you feel is appropriate & use that. If you try to take on everything you’re going to get befuddled.
Do you have a good Dad joke?
Pull my finger is always a popular one!
If you see someone stealing from an Apple store, you’re known as an iWitness.
Who is a Dad that you admire?:
I think as long as you’re there for your kids, every dad is admirable.
