Being a Lee Modern Dad – A Guest Post from Jason Greene


What makes a modern dad? According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, the definition of modern and dad are:

Modern: adjective

  • of or relating to the present time or the recent past; happening, existing, or developing at a time near the present time
  • of or relating to the current or most recent period of a language
  • based on or using the newest information, methods or technology

Dad or Father: noun

  • A person’s father
  • a male parent
  • a man who is thought of as being like a father
  • a person who was in someone’s family in past times

MY definition of a modern dad is a bit different.

Modern Dad 

  • A man who has produced children and can relate to them on many levels throughout their lives
  • A dad who is an example to his children and one that the kids want to emulate
  • A dad that rolls with the times without losing his own sense of style

So,what makes me a modern dad? I wake up every morning with my main goal to be a good dad. To be able to adapt with whatever circumstances come my way. And when problems arise, solve them. And if I can look good doing it, then that’s an added plus. Lee can take the credit for helping me look good on the outside, but being a truly good dad from the inside out, that’s on me. And when I fail at being a good dad, that’s all on me. Which is why being a modern dad is a great way to parent. If I can be ready to change and stay up to date with my kids, then good things will happen.  So, what do you think? How do you define a modern dad? What makes you a modern dad?

  • Finding The Right Fit For Men

    There’s no question that each of us have our own ideas on how our jeans should fit. Whether it’s our own unique bodies or our ever-evolving sense of style, it gets harder and harder to find a fit or style that isn’t loved by one and hated by another. Everywhere you look there are different fits — from relaxed to bootcut to straight to slim to skinny, jeans are designed to look this way and feel that way. So why worry so much about what every else tells you to wear?
