There was an interesting discussion on NPR’s Tell Me More about fathers getting involved in their children’s education. I didn’t respond in time to be on air but wrote a post accompanying the segment.
Also interesting is bigWOWO’s podcast of his conversation with two recent Asian American fathers.
The two events got me thinking about the things my dad taught me. I love my father but we don’t exactly have a Brady Bunch type relationship. I wondered how much of my relationship with my father is cultural – traditional and/or pop – and how much is just personality?
