Todd Chrisley of "Chrisley Knows Best" (peace, ya'll!). I LOVE him! I know, I know... he comes off a little "sweet"... but I don't have to sleep with him and his wife loves him (they have five kids!), so... LOLOLOL!

But his "parenting" style? A man after my own heart!! TRULY "southern", ya'll! Some (who aren't southern and maybe even some who are) might think him a bit over the top/uber-controlling, but he's RIGHT: kids need watching, especially when they get to "that age." But the "areas" he watches are warranted! Even so, he also showers them with love (okay, and gifts, but lots of love). He really CARES (not saying other dads don't, just that he cares enough to be BOTHERED), which is shown in his (uber) INVOLVEMENT in his children's lives... AND his not taking any of their "that age" melarkey! Yeah, yeah, he's also probably motivated by their reflection on HIM, I get that; what parent shouldn't be, though?). Doesn't take much, just some "presence," usually. While gifts might help, they don't always. But presence... involvement in a child's life? Interest in their lives? THAT'S what helps them grow healthy self-esteem!

So, I LOVE him (his parenting style)! And think his wife is so sweet... and her (very) patient demeanor offsets some of his inflexibility. I hope they stay together. Would be a shame if somewhere down the line hear-tell of them splitting. I hope the "media" doesn't try to foment that - y,know, to add some "drama" and "throw a monkey wrench in the[ir] works."

Just sharin'... while takin' a break between textbooks... LOLOL!

Peace!

Shellamar, whose former favorite TV dads included the dad on "My Three Sons"... "'Eddie's'" Father" (from "The Courtship of Eddie's Father")... "Uncle Bill" (from "Family Affair")... "James" (from "Good Times")... and Cliff Huxtable... on her own...
