Dads Teach Easton Kids Life Lessons

EASTON, Conn. — Alexander Stavola, a sixth-grader at Helen Keller Middle School, learned to not talk back and "don't be a jerk" from his dad. "And always be loving," Alexander said.

He is traveling with his family to Cape Cod for Father's Day and picking up his grandpa along the way. His dad and his grandpa haven't seen each other in three years.

Jack Haller, also a sixth-grader at Helen Keller, will also have a reunion this Father's Day — with his brother, Max. He and his family will be having lunch at the Black Rock Yacht Club. The most important lesson Jack learned from his dad has been to stay in school, he said.

Jimmy Flynn of Easton says his dad taught him to be more determined in life. "I learned it through his work ethic," said Flynn. He said he is determined to be good at music — he plays the guitar, drums and the piano.

Chris Popp, a sixth-grader at Helen Keller, said he's going to make breakfast in bed for his dad this Father's Day. He plans to make pancakes with blueberries — his dad's favorite — topped with maple syrup and strawberries.
