Being a dad is not about the volume of time spent; it is about attitude and connections.
It should go without saying that your kids need to know you love but there has to be more. It’s not enough to care for your kid.
Divorced dads don’t always get to see their kids like normal married dads. You see even "full time" dads who are not really "full time" due to demands from work or other obligations in life. With increasingly both parents working full time and all the distractions our gadgets cause, it seems that kids rarely have any parent that is "full time."
A strong case could be made that what kids need is not more activities but real one-on-one time with both mom and dad.
