He’s the same Dad who not only attended every dance recital his daughters were in growing up – but stayed until the end. That’s about 16 years of “Miss Cathy’s” dance recitals.
They say everything you need to know you learn in kindergarten. Well, I learned everything I needed to know as a 10 and 11 year old caddying for my father. He played golf every Saturday and Sunday, unless there was snow on the ground.

This Father’s Day, CBSNewYork is taking a look at some of the worst fathers the Tri-State area has seen in recent years, from movie stars to murderers.
