I have already seen this phrase (give take on + sth) on newspapers. Though I looked it up in dictionaries, I wouldn't find it. I'm very keen of learning English.

what is the meaning of "He gives his take on fatherhood".

    What exactly did you look up in dictionaries? And which dictionaries? Did you, for example, look up the noun senses of the word take (especially sense 5 here)? That should give you your answer. Sep 17, 2015 at 20:29
  • I'll give you my take: If you're keen on learning English, you may want to create a second account on English Language Learners. That's probably a better place for questions like this one. You can get more information here, where I gave my take on the differences between the two sites.

To give one's take on an issue means to express one's opinion or express one's point of view on it.

See nos. 100-101 in this dictionary entry as well as the forum discussion here.
