James, who is most famous for his portrayal of Dawson Leery in the hit series "Dawson's Creek," also gave parenting tips in his post.

"Sometimes nervous fathers-to-be ask me for advice, and I try to be careful, because every kid is different, and so is every dad," he wrote.

James added, "But one thing that feels pretty universal... is the value in trying to be present, and treating each moment as an opportunity for connection."

In his post, the actor pointed out that spending time with your children is hugely significant.

James admitted that "No father is perfect," yet in the event that the connection is your objective, you can't generally mess up.
