    Most mothers have absolutely no problem articulating what some of the challenges of being a parent are.  They will brag about their beautiful children and sing their praises but they will also tell you that parenting can be stressful and messy at times too.     Now dads, on the other hand, also have their own point of view on the joys of parenthood but we rarely get to hear their take on being a parent or how they cope with the difficulties involved in raising children.     Now my husband always has an opinion on everything and is the best father I know so, who better to interview to get the dads point of view on parenting?  After much coaxing, he finally agreed to answer some of my questions and I am very excited to share his responses with all of you here:   -What are your tips for new dads?
