Fatherhood skills gained from playing RPG's?

This is a post from Corante ( that I just had to share. Andrew Phelps is an assistant professor at the Rochester Institute of Technology, in Rochester, NY. He is the founding faculty member of the Game Programming Concentration within the Department of Information Technology. While attending a recent educational conference he began to ponder his fairly new found role as a father, and how he approaches that role and certain tasks that specifically pertain to it. He then begins to draw a correlation to his role and work as a father to his long standing skill development in playing RPG's. It is a facinating reflection, especially as it pertains to the transference of skills from a leisure activity to real life.
