Work-life balance is a constant struggle for parents, but how does it change when you are the president of the United States?
Of the 43 men who have served as U.S. president, 38 have biological children and 5 have adopted children. Kendall offers a fascinating look at these First Dads and what their individual parenting style reveals about their personal beliefs and leadership qualities.
