Time for a Great Cartoon: Dads and Answers!

screen-shot-2016-09-23-at-6-52-21-pmSometimes we dads don’t know the answer!  Actually, I admire Calvin’s dad for being creative with his non-answers!  Teach the child to sort truth from error, I always say!

Time for a Great Cartoon: Happy Father’s Day!

Screen Shot 2016-05-30 at 9.29.02 PM

Fathers should encourage their children to think for themselves, to ask good questions, to do their own research!

Happy Fathers’ Day to all of you Dads out there who take seriously the parenting of your children!

Time for a Great Cartoon! (Father’s answer)

Screen Shot 2014-11-27 at 3.36.10 PMYou gotta admire Calvin’s dad!  He is trying to raise perhaps the world’s most precocious kid, and creative answers are one way he is practicing fathering!  Unlike many of the portrayals in the media of dads these days, Calvin’s father isn’t a doofus or an incompetent.

It seems to me that Calvin’s dad is strategic.  When Calvin asks his often quite Screen Shot 2014-12-12 at 6.35.48 AMdifficult-to-answer questions, the dad doesn’t say, “Hmmm.  I have no idea.”  No, instead he creates an answer that teaches Calvin to be careful in blindly trusting someone else’s perspective.  The dad is not just messing with Calvin for his own entertainment (although there is some of that).  He’s assisting Calvin’s thinking, at times risking the wrath of Calvin’s mom.

C’mon, dads! Let’s get a bit creative in answering our kids’ questions!  You just might have some fun in the process!

When Only Dad Could Save the Day! (time for a great commercial!)

How nice to see a commercial that speaks positively about DADS!  If your dad is still alive, may I suggest you give him a call and thank him for his love and protection in your life.

If your father has passed on, may I suggest that you take a few minutes and thank God for the positive impact your father had on you?

Not everyone has a protective, loving dad.  Isn’t it good to know that you and I have an absolutely perfect heavenly Father who loves us so much He gave His Son for us?


1.  What verses about fathers jump out at you from the Scriptures?

2.  If you are a father, how are you doing things a bit differently than your father did them?
