Questions to ask on a dad date

“For the last five years I have taken the kids out individually for breakfast. I do it about four times a year. It’s not only on the weekends – I’ll do it on a school morning, around 7.30 a.m. I never take them to McDonalds because that is just a rush job, but I take them to a proper restaurant. I let the conversation go with the flow and don’t usually have an agenda, I simply ask questions.” – Neale Fong, doctor
