Comedian Chris Rock recently sat down with NPR host Terry Gross on the show Fresh Air to discuss his upcoming film 2 Days In New York.

Rock, who is a dedicated father and husband usually incorporates his family tales into his comedy routine. Everyone knows about the “big piece of chicken” bit that so many dads can relate to. In this interview he gives some insite on what it takes to be an active parent while still maintaining his career.

I’m fortunate. I grew up, two parents, my dad was really into it, so just by osmosis, I’m just really into it. I never really looked at it as a chore or whatever. When I hear people talk about juggling, or the sacrifices they make for their children, I look at them like they’re crazy, because ‘sacrifice’ infers that there was something better to do than being with your children. And I’ve never been with my kids and gone, ‘Man, I wish I was on my stage right now.’ I’ve never been with my kids and gone, ‘Man, it’d be so great if I was on a movie set right now.’ But I’ve been doing a movie and wished that I was with my kids, I’ve been on tour and wished that I was with my kids. Being with my kids is the best, most fun thing, it’s a privilege. It’s not something I call a sacrifice.”

It’s always good to see entertainers giving out advice on parenting and using their platform to inspire others.  Chris Rock is a great example for any working dad to not only be a provider for his children, but also to be there for them and spend that important quality time in their lives.
