I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

DAD – you are important!

Father Watching His Infant SleepDads – do you have any idea how important you are to your children?

In today’s world, many children are being raised in fatherless homes because of marriage breakdowns, relationship issues and mainly just because people have trouble with commitment.    Bringing a child into the world is a huge responsibility and it requires a lot of time and patience.  A child needs the love and attention of two parents who work together selflessly for the good of their family.

When fathers are not involved in their children’s lives, it hampers their well-being and future successes.  Research clearly shows that fathers leave a huge impression on their children, especially their daughters.  When young girls have a close, loving relationship with their fathers, they have a much better change of having good relationships with other people, especially any males in their lives.

Being a dad is an important job and one that should last through a child’s entire life, even when they become an adult.    If you haven’t had a good relationship with your own dad, it may be hard for you to understand what it even means to be a good dad.   Being a good dad means that you show love and respect to your child, paying attention to their needs, setting appropriate guidelines for them and spending time with them.

If you are a dad, please be involved in the life of your children!   Be loving, be caring, be responsible.  Show your family that they are an important part of your life and be a positive role model for them.
