Happy Father Day

On this Father’s Day weekend, we want to salute dads, fathers, step dads, and other men who influence children. 
In this pop culture that tends to trump traditional values, we are perplexed on every hand.  Marriage and responsibility appears to be a thing of the past.  We are now into “self” and doing things our way.  Often times not thinking what’s best for the children in our charge. We spend most of our time trying to find ourselves.  I suggest you are not lost.  Perhaps you are scared of responsibility or failing your children.  Children however, accept their parents with all their strengths and short comings.  I would encourage dads to “just” be there for their children.  The rewards are immeasurable.
Children, who grow up with an involved father, benefit in numerous ways:
·         They have a better sense of self
·         They are more goal oriented
·         They get into less trouble with the police
·         They tend not to get involved in gang activities
·         They tend to be in better relationships
·         Girls do not get pregnant as often as girls in fatherless home
·         Children tend not to be in abusive relationships
·         Children are less likely to commit suicide
·         Studies show that families tend to benefit financially, emotionally and spiritually from dads presence.  So dads, stay involve with your children.  Spend quality time with them, set a good example, and respect the mother of your children, even when it is hard to do. Support your children even when you are not in their lives on a regular basis. 

I encourage men to do some soul searching about your relationship with your children.  If things are not right, you can fix it.  Think of Bob the Builder, "Yes you can!"

Yes children turn out as better adults period with both parents in their lives. I know two young men that are not involved in their children's life. They give several excuses: I'm broke, I gotta get on my feet, It's not my baby....the list goes on. The funny part is most of these same men grew up in a single mother household with no father figure themselves. How Ironic!! I will say this to those young men: Think of the pain & emptiness you felt as a child from being fatherless. Think of how hard you probably watched your mother/guardian worked to pay bills & how all that working took away her time with you. Lastly think of the times you felt heartbroken & thrown away because your father wasn't there. Do you want to inflict that same feeling onto your daughter/son? Do you want to put them through all that? That's exactly what you are doing by being void in their lives. It's one of the worst things you could do to a child, abandon them.What great is that children are so pure they truely have unconditional love for their parents & showing them love will make them into great people. God rewards those who try.

Thanks for the comments. I love your thought process. We really have to praise men who are doing a great job and encourage the ones who are neglecting their responsibilities. Thank God for grandfathers, uncles, cousins, male friends, etc who are standing in the gap! Minerva

My mom died when I was still young. My father was the one who took care of us after my mom died. I can say that I am a daddy’s girl. I really love my dad. He is also like a mother to me and to my sister. And the benefits you mentioned in your blog are true. It is really true because my father taught us about life, everything in life including the problems we might encounter along the way, and he is a role model for us. Happy fathers day to all dads out there!
