GOOD DAD

The father of Violet, 5, and Seraphina, 2, is often seen toting his girls around town. He has said, "I love being a father... It's wonderful. It's changed my life. It all sounds like platitudes and clichés, and that's because they're the truth."

Michael Lohan

BAD DAD

Troubled actress, Lindsay Lohan, hasn’t had the best father-figure in her life. She has admitted, “I haven't had a real relationship with Michael Sr. in years.”

"He's a deadbeat dad,” she says. “He needs help."

Still, Michael has attempted to stage interventions to help his troubled daughter. While they are often done through the press, perhaps in his own bad dad way, Lohan is trying to make amends.

Alec Baldwin

BAD DAD

The “30 Rock” star left some pretty damaging evidence of his parenting skills on his daughter, Ireland’s voice mail. He called the 11-year-old a "thoughtless little pig.”

He continued: "I don't give a damn that you're 12-years-old or 11-years-old, or a child, or that your mother [Kim Basinger] is a thoughtless pain in the ass who doesn't care about what you do."

He then threatened to "straighten your ass out."

BAD DAD

After Farrah Fawcett’s funeral, O’Neal says, "I had just put the casket in the hearse and I was watching it drive away when a beautiful blonde woman comes up and embraces me… I said to her, 'You have a drink on you? You have a car?' She said, 'Daddy, it's me--Tatum!' I was just trying to be funny with a strange Swedish woman, and it's my daughter. It's so sick."

GOOD DAD

The funnyman  has joked about his parenting style: "If you’re flying with your children, it’s better to book them on the same flight as you and not on a separate one just so they can have more leg room."

But it's all fun and games, as this dad is often photographed with his little ones, who probably never stop laughing!

Michael Douglas

BAD DAD

David Beckham

GOOD DAD

The soccer star says, “I used to play [golf], quite a few years ago, but to be honest, I’d rather spend 4 hours with the kids than 4 hours on a golf course. As much as it can be relaxing, it’s a frustrating sport. My way of relaxing is listening to music and spending time with the kids.”
