About This Quiz

Some dads are the absolute best. If you were lucky enough to have a great dad, you know exactly what we mean. There is a lot of responsibility when you are a dad, and pretty much every guy out there that has a kid goes into it wanting to be excellent at it.

But there isn't just one type of cool dad, there are all sorts of them. Some dads are the best friend type, who just wants to hang out and have fun; others are the cool dads that do something outside of the box and encourage you to be the best you can be. There is also the type of dad that turns tough love into an art form; the one that is super in touch with his feelings, the one that is always joking around with you, the one that is continually teaching you how to fix things, and the type of dad that is just so darn smart you don't even know how to deal with. All of these dads can be the best; the most important thing is that you are there for your kids, that you care, and that you try. So which dad are you going to be? Take this quiz to find out.
