I think of this thread as a way to look at different types as fathers. What type was your dad? And what was he like as a father?
My dad is IEI. He's a great dad for the most part. When I was growing up he read to me every night. He read me lord of the rings, mark twain, Shakespeare, Dune, and many others. He taught me kung fu and read taoism to me. My fondest memories of him are of when he took me hiking or when he brushed my hair.
My father brushed my hair every night because my ESE mom was hurting my head. He'd hang crystals in the window, play the song "She's a rainbow" by the rolling stones and softly brush my hair every morning and every night.
When I turned 13 he told me all the boys were masturbating and not to let them hug me. I said "Are you sure?" He said "Have you seen her dressed in blue?"
Lol I still love the song and who cares about male attention? Not me.
