Taking on fatherhood is a very personal journey for dads.
Occasionally, you will experience other children’s grandfathers, most likely at playgrounds, attempting to accelerate that personal journey on your behalf.
Common examples are:
- Telling you which playground equipment is better suited to your child
- Attempting to physically grab your child in order to place them upon the playground equipment which is better suited to your child
The Official Dad’s recommendation is to refrain from feeling angry and upset.
Perhaps this strong willingness to offer advice originates from their place of birth, where the harvesting of personal journeys is a top 3 national pastime. The real reason is as yet unknown to The Official Dad.
