About This Quiz

One of the things that everyone in this world has in common is that we all have fathers, but just none of them are exactly alike. Still, different dads tend to have things in common. Some of our dads are the best friend type, always hanging out and telling jokes and not being much or a disciplinarian. Other dads are the exact opposite, total tough guys, always telling us exactly how things are going to be and how we are supposed to behave, but only because they love us. Then there is the hovering kind of dad, the type that is always worried that something is going to go wrong and does his best to shelter you from it. Then there is the guy that is all man. He is either off to play golf, watching football, building something in his workshop, or going fishing. Then there is the type of dad that is the provider, spending all his time at work to make money for his family. 

All of these types of dads are cool, in fact, the only requirement to be a good father is that you put in the time and have a good heart, and we know you have those two things down. What kind of father would you be? Take this quiz to find out.
