What do you think makes a dad "dad material"?

From my experience, a drunken slur, some broken glass & a belt. Now that is a man. *cries in spider corner*

Dad puns. All of the puns. (I recently got my dad into making puns so now it's me and dad bouncing off each other with puns while mom suffers)

well considering goku's childhood and genetic disposion he is a pretty good dad but by human standards vegeta is the better one he does more then teach his kids to fight which is all goku really has done to help his kids.


In dragonball I pretty sure Krillin is the best dad. + a wife that looks 18 forever.

Someone who's involved and makes attempts to connect to their children. Discipline and teach your kids yes, but also treat them as human beings, because they aren't going to be 9 forever. You want just as strong of a connection with them when they're adults. You want to be able to communicate with them warmly even after they move out.

My father was around physically, and provided for the family as a breadwinner, but didn't care too much about me or my brother. His attempts to connect with us always had to revolve around his hobbies, and he would frequently shame us for ours or try to ban them outright. He left all the hard parenting to my mother, and as a result, we love Mom and resent Dad. Mom saw us as people. Dad saw us as pawns.

- Being someone of good moral character.
- Being someone that is mature enough to guide their children to make their own decisions in life. They don't tell their child what they must be despite the child's protest.
- Someone that is the same person to their family as they are to a server at a restaurant. In other words, they treat people with respect, even if they are a stranger.
- Someone that will allow their child to show their emotions and be supportive when they need to let out their feelings. This would be especially true for boys and their fathers.

There are probably many others. I am fortunate to have a father that is all the qualities listed above. I know that many do not have such a loving home, and I hope that they will break the cycle, and show their children all the love and respect that they were never given.

Basically caring for family members as much as he cares for himself.
Responsibility!!!! and maturity.
Firm but loving.

Stating the obvious here: becoming a dad makes you "dad material" by default.

Being a father, however...

He actually wants to be a positive contribution by being in his kid's life, is stable, doesn't get abusive, yell at or beat his wife or kids, actually spends time with them and shows a constant investment in their wellbeing , present and future. Is available, isn't a drunk or asshole. Wants their kids, not just a fling or one-night stand with mom. Generally speaking he needs to be or try to be a decent human being and maybe he'll do , not everyone is or can be 'dad material'.
