A parenting style I can get behind

JOEL ACHENBACH is my kinda dad: 

My boss, a working mom, is wonderfully sympathetic, and many times when I’m working late, she’ll say, “Why don’t you knock off and go to the driving range.” When I get home later that evening I’ll announce that Daddy needs some “me time” to sit in his chair and read his favorite magazines. Once in a while one of my daughters will ask for help with homework, and I’ll spend a minute jotting down all the correct answers before sending her off to the kitchen to get ice cream for us both. It’s rewarding being a father!

Looks like *someone* is trying to take over the Dave Barry mantle……
