A Great Dad: Gilles Marini?

An interview with Gilles Marini. I don’t even know who this guy is, but I guess he’s on that insipid Brothers and Sisters show my wife watches. You can tell by the swelling music that it’s like the old, old 30 Something (same producers) and made for moms, not dads.

Interesting response on the big lesson of fatherhood. I have to say that “spend more time at work” is not of the lessons I’ve learned from being with my kids.

You’re dad to Juliana, 4, and Georges, 10. What do you love best about this gig?

I think there are not yet any words created to describe it–what’s inside you, the feelings. I would never, ever, ever give up the passion that it is to be a dad.

What’s the most important thing your own dad taught you about fatherhood?

My father was a really hard-working man. So he taught me how to be a man. That was really his job. And by a very young age, I learned from him that working was a part of being a man. That’s why I was never scared of work. I think I worked from about age 7 on and never really stopped. I owe him so much. I will never be a third of the man he was, but I’m going to keep trying.
