Dads in the Limelight ( #limelightdads ) – Don Craig #dadchat

Our 257nd Dad in the Limelight is Don Craig of the Old Guys Rule Product Line. I want to thank Don for being a part of this series. It has been great getting connected with him and now sharing him with all of you.

1) Tell me about yourself, (as well as how you are in the limelight for my readers knowledge) 

I’m 63 years old and running the Licensing arm of Old Guys Rule

 

2) Tell me about your family

I’m on my 2nd marriage of 21 years and have 2 sons from my previous marriage. They are 37 and  35

 

3) What has been the largest challenge you have had in being a father?

Having a long range relationship with my sons when they moved 2000 miles away.

 

4) What advice would you give to other fathers?

Time heals all wounds and be patient with the kids when you’re with them.

 

5) Seeing that you (or your position) are in the limelight, how have you come to balance parenthood and outside life? If you are currently not in the limelight per se, please still answer this in regards to how you balance parenthood and outside life.

My kids grew up as surfers so we have that activity in common. My father was also a surfer so we all  started at a very young age, and still participate on a regular basis. My father passed away at 83, but I got to surf with him until he was 80. We camped and surfed together all our lives, so having that activity as a common bond has been really rewarding.

6) What have you learned from the fathers that you have interacted with?

I’ve learned that I can learn from their experiences as well as my own. My father and his friends were the reason I came up with the idea for Old Guys Rule. My dad and 2 of his friends were known as the 3 wise men. All my friends and I always looked to them for their advice and wisdom when we had young families and were in our 30′s, 40′s and 50′s

 

7) What else would you share regarding your experiences as a father thus far?

You’re never to old to learn something new. Be open minded to change and new technologies.

8) What have been the most memorable experiences that you have had thus far as a parent?

Sharing the kids successes and mistakes and learning from each of them.

If you have any questions for Don, please leave a comment here and I will make sure that he gets them so that he may be able to respond!

Also, do you know a Dad in the Limelight? If so, please email me their contact information so that they too can be a part of this series!
