Bearing gift, having time for papa (8)
I believe the answer is:
'bearing' is the definition.
I don't understand the remainder of the clue.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for attitude that I've seen before include "One's position on a matter" , "truculence" , "Position, stance on matter" , "Mentality" , "Way of thinking or behaving,stance" .)
