DAD THROUGH THE DECADES
An article printed in a Dutch magazine reflects the transition most of us have gone through in our assessment of father:
4 years: My daddy can do anything.
7 years: My dad knows a lot, a whole lot!
8 years: Dad doesn’t know quite everything.
12 years: Dad just doesn’t understand.
14 years: Dad? Hopelessly old-fashioned!
21 years: My dad is truly out of date. But what would you expect?
25 years: He comes up with a good idea now and then.
30 years: I must find out what Dad thinks about it.
35 years: Wait, I want to get Dad’s input first.
50 years: What would Dad have thought about that?
60 years: I wish I could talk it over with Dad once more.
