Bruce Jenner presides over a family of ten kids on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and over the years he’s passed on some awesome lessons to dads out there. Patriarchs, are you listening?
He's close with his step-kids, which anyone with a mixed home will tell you is nearly impossible. Good on you, Bruce!
He's so close to them, in fact, that he walked Khloe and Kim Kardashian down the aisle. Now that Kim's engaged, he's planning to due it again (even though he's split from her mom).
He's working to improve his fractured relationship with his sons Brody and Brandon Jenner, as we saw this season on KUWTK.
He's totally inspiring. Bruce makes big bucks as a motivational speaker. Imagine the speech he'd make forcing you to eat your veggies as a kid!
He loves toys. That's a great quality in a dad.
He is open about what it takes to make a marriage happy... and when it's time to move on.
He teaches his kids about chores, as we saw in an episode of KUWTK in which Kendall outsourced hers to a handyman.
He wants his girls to stay little girls forever. He's demonstrated on the show how hard it's been to see Kendall and Kylie use make-up and talk to boys.
He uses tough love when necessary. When Rob Kardashian struggled for purpose after college, Bruce threatened to kick him out of the house if he didn't pull his act together.
He teaches his kids about the importance of charity. He arranged an infamous charity boxing match where people could bid to tussle with his family.
He isn't afraid of the birds-and-the-bees talk. He discussed birth control with Kendall and Kylie Jenner on the show.
He is protective of his family. He has brawled with the paparazzi when they've gotten too close to the kids.
He can hang with the young people. Please note cool haircut and earrings.

He tries to keep his very wealthy family grounded. He forced Kendall and Kylie to work in a homeless shelter in LA when he felt they were getting too spoiled.
He is very tough on the men in his daughters' lives. He rightfully held a grudge again Kourtney Kardashian's hot mess of a boyfriend, Scott Disick, before coming around to care for him.
