17 Jun: ‘Presence over perfection’: A first-time father enjoys time with his newborn son

When Chase Christman, welcomed his first child, Grayson Thomas, on May 12, he remembered the advice one of his Best Buy colleagues gave him about fatherhood: Presence over perfection.

“That’s something I’m really going to hang on to,” said Chase, the director at our delivery distribution center in Flower Mound, Texas. “I’m going to make mistakes. I’m going to do things wrong. But I want to make sure I’m present and supporting him or guiding him through whatever.”

Chase implemented this advice the moment Grayson arrived.

18 Jun: Best Buy Dads Reflect On Fatherhood

Kindness. Respect. Unconditional love. These are some of the values fathers around the world instill in their children.

For Father’s Day, we caught up with a handful of Best Buy dads to hear what they hope to teach their kids — and what their kids are teaching them.

There’s one thing we heard repeatedly: Patience, patience and more patience.

17 Jun: In His 82 Years, Technology Changed – And Dad Changed With it

When your dad is no longer with you, Father’s Day can be difficult. But technology, and the wonders that can come with it, make it a little easier to be a daughter missing her dad on this day.

While some octogenarians bemoan modern technology and the difficulty of using it, my 82-year-old dad was an internet surfer. He was always an avid reader, visiting the library often to stock up.  So I sold him on the internet by telling him it was a library, open 24/7/365.
