Now imagine that same scenario, but with only one parent in the picture. In this gripping episode of Milk Money, we’re sharing the story of a single dad.

Whether he’s working one of his multiple part time jobs doing food delivery or working retail, Rossi proves to his son everyday what it means to be a good man and a loving father—showing us that the greatest lessons in parenting are showing our kids what loving parenting looks and feels like.
