How would you describe Harry as a parent? What contributes to Harry's lack of parenting skills? Why has it taken Harry so long to realize that he isn't a good father to Albus? Is it possible for Harry to be a bad father to Albus, but a good father to his other children? Being a father is entirely new for him.
