I'm not babysitting, I'm fathering

by Bill Allison

Often when I'm in public with my kids and my wife isn't there, people take a look at all of us and then smile and politely say to me, "You're baby sitting today."

Excuse me?  Babysitting?  Really?

I know they're trying to be nice, but let's think about this for a moment.

The only way I'd be babysitting in this scenario is IF I were with someone else's kids.

When I'm with my kids, I'm not a babysitter. I'm a father.

So, let's call it what it really is: fathering.

And let's call fathering what it really is... disciplemaking.
