I don’t think there’s a parent out there who doesn’t have a few regrets. We respond too harshly or don’t respond when we should. We forget to make the cupcakes for the school bake sale or miss our turn on snack day. The lucky shirt doesn’t get washed before the big game, or worse…it does get washed. We all have our stories and these little mishaps are the things that keep us humble as parents. We relate to one another in a way that non-parents don’t understand because we are just fumbling our way through this thing called parenthood.
Hank Azaria recently joined the ranks of parents and started seeking advice from his friends and colleagues. What evolved is an entertaining and relatable series from Disney, called Fatherhood.
Hank Azaria’s touching, humorous, and often enlightening journey from a man who is not even sure he wants to have kids, to expectant father, to father of a premature boy struggling for his life… and then to a regular ‘ol Dad facing all the normal joys, trials and tribulations of being a father, now comes to life in this unique new series featuring leading actors, comedians and child-rearing experts teaching us new lessons.
I have been watching the videos online and Fatherhood is fantastic. Some of my favourite actors share their parenting experiences in a way that parents can really connect with. It’s really nice to know that even the big celebrities are struggling through this parenting gig.
