And before you engage in any ad hominem attacks, please be aware of the following: (i) I am a father (and a pretty good one); and, (ii) my father walked out on me when I was a young kid and never came back.
I wasn't singling anyone out. I'm also a father (a good one) and my dad also walked out on me at an early age. I still think Peterson had opportunities to meet this child, even if it was just three months. See my previous reasons.
