"Discipline. I'm defi nitely the 'good cop.' I would let my son get away with everything (very bad news). It's the pouty face, I swear!" — Meghann Quick, Rosendale "He has the man voice to get them to listen the fi rst time." — Pamela Roe, Hyde Park "Do pancakes equal parenting? If so, then my spouse is awesome at whipping up some Saturday morning fl apjacks, while I sleep in for 'just 5 more minutes.' He's defi nitely more a morning person than I." — Elke Rittger, Central Valley "My husband is a stay-at-home dad mainly because he has much more patience than I. He can sit and play with the kids for hours doing the same thing over and over. He is happy with just being home with them for days in a row where I would be on the go all the time." — Kirstene Redding, Kerhonkson "Play indoors and outdoors. He is able to focus and play with them. I try to do a million other things while 'playing' with them!" — Brianna O'Reilly, Marbletown "Homework! I have no patience. Besides my husband is better with math." — Silvana Kamakaloy, Newburgh For more reader feedback on what dads do better than moms, head to page 23! 16 20
