Q&A With Dean McDermott

Dean McDermott, star of Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood, answered our questions about life at home with wife Tori Spelling, and his favorite things about being a dad.

Q: How are you dealing with Liam's terrible twos?
A: The terrible twos are no fun! It's the first time I'm going through them. My first son Jack was an angel at 2. He never went through the stubborn, defiant, I'm-asserting-myself-and-figuring-out-boundaries stage. He was a breeze. Don't get me wrong—Liam is an angel as well; he just throws tantrums once in a while.

Q: How do you feel about staying at home with the kids?
A: I've said it before: Being a stay-at-home mom or dad is the most difficult job there is. Not only are you solely responsible for the little people you're caring for, but your interaction with adults and the "grown-up" world is limited. It's a very stressful, demanding job.

Q: Do you wish you could spend more time at home?
A: I wish I could spend more time with the kids. This year has been very busy with work, which is a good thing. But in all honesty, if I didn't have to work, I wouldn't. I'd love to just hang with the fam. I guess I'd better start playing the lottery.

Q: What does Father's Day mean to you?
A: Father's Day, to me, is a celebration of all the fathers of the world and the love, devotion and hard work they put into their families. It's a day for them to do whatever they want—as long as it's okay with their wives.

Q: How do you stay connected to the kids when you're away from home?
A: When I'm away, I stay connected to the kids via email, text, phone calls, and Skype. So far, Skype has been the best since they can't read my text or emails yet.
