Father’s Day – Sunday 21 June 2015.
“Anyone can be a father, but it takes a Real Man to be a Dad, bring up kids and be a committed and responsible father”.
From my experience – A good father needs to be present, he needs to be a role model, be understanding, have a sympathetic ear and he should be a good disciplinarian.
A father is someone who loves you unconditionally.
No matter what, he will always love you and be there for you. He remembers that once upon a time he was also young, did crazy and stupid things but somehow always survived.
A good father leads by example. He knows, children don’t always listen to all you say, however, kids hear, see and they watch you …. and from that they learn and they do.
Dads, please do special and fun things with your kids. Be there for the special moments in their life, as those are the things they will treasure for the rest of their lives.
Talk to your children, show interest in their lives, try to understand the way they think, their concerns and what they struggle with.
The responsibilities of being a father is enormous and no doubt fathers don’t always realize just how important fatherhood is !!
