OR­DI­NARY DADS

The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - UP FRONT -

Yes, Susie O’Brien, it is “Time to re­think what makes Fa­ther of the Year” ( SAWeek­end Sept 6-7).

Per­haps there should be two cat­e­gories, one for the celebri­ties and one for the or­di­nary Aus­tralian blokes: like the sort of bald­ing bat­tler who might just hap­pen to be an ad­e­quate provider and the loving sole par­ent of five kids, owns a pet dog and is hope­lessly be­hind with the rent.

Such car­ing fa­thers are out there, but un­for­tu­nately they’re just not fa­mous or glam­orous enough to even be con­sid­ered. Neil Long­bot­tom Min­la­ton
