Words to live by: Parkinson’s Disease Helped Make Fox a Better Dad

Words for dads to live by. Some times it takes great tragedy to really understand what living in the moment with your kids really means. We all fail at this a million times a day, but anything it takes to bring us back to the “now” when with our kids is good stuff.

Actor Michael J. Fox’s Parkinson’s Disease has helped him to become a better dad.

The star insists his medical condition made him put his kids first and his work second.

During an interview with Oprah Winfrey, which aired on her daily talk show on Tuesday, Fox said, “If I’m sitting, watching TV or something and my kids come and they want to show me something, they wanna ask me something, I just made up my mind that there’s nothing that I’m doing at any time that’s more important than that, and I’ll always get up every time and go.
