>>> and al, you guys are most modern evolved dads.
>> i think so.
>> very hands on dads.
>> but we all remember when this was the ideal father figure.
>> i'm not going to bargain with you.
>> oh, mr. cleaver. in the 50s and 60s it was all about that but according to a myth busting report from the cdc, today's fathers are no longer happy to be those stern hands-off. nine out of ten dads say they bathe, diaper and dress their kids two times a week and two out of three helped with homework and the more involved the dad is the better the potential outcome is for that child.
>> i was really hands on with jack. my first kid. it does dwindle a little bit. i haven't changed as many dirty diapers. i'm owning it right now.
>> it backed off a little bit but of course you share in those things and you want to be a part of all of that.
>> i was lucky. my dad was hands on. he was a bus driver and way ahead of his time and when he was there, he was there.
>> which one of you could change a diaper faster? not that it's a competition.
>> i do it every day. he has been out of practice for awhile. i can change al's diapers very fast.
>> in fact, he did this morning.
