Channing Tatum on How the Single Dad Life Inspired Him to Write

Channing Tatum might be a lot of things on screen. Off-screen he’s a single dad, and the best-selling author of three children’s books.

Are You a Dad or a Father?

Thoughts have been running through my head about what makes a dad and what makes a father. It isn’t enough for me to sit still on such immense questions. I have even steered some of my dad-mates into the banter with a genuine desire to land a correct answer. "Dad" or "Father"? To me, there is a heartfelt warmth to being a dad.
