“I think that the best thing we can do for our children is to allow them to do things for themselves, allow them to be strong, allow them to experience life on their own terms, allow them to take the subway... let them be better people, let them believe more in themselves.”
C. JoyBell C.
Real fatherhood means love and commitment and sacrifice and a willingness to share responsibility and not walking away from one's children.
Fatherhood isn't always a planned thing, but when it happens you just do it. It's very natural and in that sense it's not really difficult.
A happy family needs a loving and caring father, and he who knows how to be a mother sometimes.
“Being a good father to our children requires a few goals:
1. Be an example of personal responsibility
2. Display self-respect
3. Be an example of personal growth, passion, and perseverance
4. Recognize and accept your child’s particular gifts and nurture them, not wish they had others
5. Respect their mother (slightly amended)”
- Charles F. Glassman
A good father is a man who supports his children even when he has no money.
Being a father has been, without a doubt, my greatest source of achievement, pride and inspiration. Fatherhood has taught me about unconditional love, reinforced the importance of giving back and taught me how to be a better person.
