The other day I found a really great article online about parenting called, You just Broke Your Child. Congratulations by Single Dad Laughing. I was so impressed by his words about fathers being the hero in their childrens lives.
In the article, he talks about how he was at Costco and witnessed a sad display of a father emotionally beating down his young son.
The author, Dan, pleads to fathers everywhere to be a man and rise up to the amazing calling of being a father.
He talks about how important it is to uplift our children and make them feel loved and special, because they are.
In one paragraph he says, "Dads. Wake up! These precious souls that have been put into your care are unique and so very sensitive. Everything you say or don’t say will impact their ability, success, and happiness throughout their entire lives."
If you have a second, I strongly recommend reading this post. Not only is it good for fathers, but it really is eye opening for everyone.
