Inside the special issue on fatherhood, the pair discuss the bond between a man and his kids and the lessons they have learned from each other.

In the interview, Joe explained that his focus on family extends to everyone who works with him:

We have an expression in our family: If you have to ask for help, it’s too late. We’re there for each other. I have a rule for every single staff member who’s ever worked for me in forty-two years: If you ever come to work when your kid has an important function, no matter what you’re doing for me—if you ever show up for me and you miss your wife’s birthday or your husband’s birthday or your kid’s thing, don’t work for me. And I mean it. That is the God’s truth. I can swear on my word as a Biden.

The June issue of Popular Mechanics is on newsstands now.
