So, your point being? It is a lot better to be a father at 49 or so than what our society sees most of! We see parents who aren't nearly ready to be parents in their teens! Which would you rather have? I'm a father at 45, and yes there is a generational gap, but, it doesn,t matter if your'e a father at 20, that gap is still there! These kids don't need friends, they need parents!
