9. He’s moral and doting father
Jason’s had his first and only child at the age of 61. His daughter Sophie Mae is now 15 years of age and her father is very doting as you would expect.
When she was twelve years of age, Jason said this of her:
“Young people today have a command of technology that means that they no longer need to communicate in the way we did,” he said.
“They’re texting and tweeting but not learning any skills. Social interaction is very, very important but we’re losing the ability to do it properly.”
He added: “I know it’s going to get harder as we move towards the teenage years. Sophie’s already got a mobile phone, but that’s only because of peer pressure.
“What do you do when a little person comes to you and says, ‘I’m the only one that doesn’t have a phone’. They go on and on, drip, drip, drip, until you go, ‘Oh alright’. But that’s the world today. It’s not something I’m particularly happy with.
“Between three and seven are the best years. Sophie made me laugh so much. I remember reading Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and I asked her the next night, ‘What do you want me to read?’ She said ‘I want Snow White and the Seven ‘Warfs’. So now her nickname is The Warf. Those times were so funny.”
