Adam Sandler is a favorite of those of us who lived through his glory days on SNL and in films like "Happy Gilmore." Sure, he's done and said some questionable things, but Sandler, now 50, is the…doting father of two daughters. That's why I rounded up some of my favorite quotes of Sandler's about being a dad, just in time for Father's Day. On balancing time for his kids: “My kids give me the most joy, but there are life adjustments. I don’t go out to meet anyone after 9:30 at night. I… >> Read More
It's Father's Day this Sunday, which means it's time to make some plans if you haven't already. Regardless of whether you make big or small plans, it's always fun to watch a movie together as a…family--or even as a couple without the kids.

Everyone knows about "Mom Guilt." It's like your shadow--always there even when you don't want it to be. But apparently, dads feel it too (Happy Father's Day!).
According to an online survey of…over 1,200 dads conducted by Fatherly and Today, dads feel bad when they work too much and miss that recital or performance, or spend too much time on their phones, or get frustrated by not having enough "me time." The survey shows that dads feel pressured to fulfill that traditional breadwinner role, with 1 in 4 dads feeling guilty… >> Read More
When it comes to humor, Jerry Seinfeld is kind of an expert. When it comes to what his kids find funny--and what he gets mad at, you may wonder. Given that his whole brand of humor revolves around…being uptight and selfish, what kind of dad is he? Well, apparently, he's the kind of dad who once "lost his temper" with his now 16-year-old daughter Sascha (he also has two sons, Shepherd, 12, and Julian, 14), because she was watching "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," according to a recent interview with Mr. Porter. The 63-year-old said: "The… >> Read More
