“Fathers, like mothers, are not born. Men grow into fathers – and fathering is a very important stage in their development.”
David M. Gottesman
The sexiest, most interesting men alive, are not the ones with six packs for abs, nor the men who are driving flashy cars and carrying thick wallets. They’re the fathers who have embraced their roles and are fully responsible for the impact they wield on their children’s lives.
They’re the men who realize that mothering shouldn’t be a 24-hour job – and jump at the chance to spend time with their children. Men, who do so, because they’ve found true happiness in make-believe stories and therapeutic laughter at the changing table; not because it’s some mandatory duty carried out to deflect anger from an overworked spouse.
Real fathers make the conscious decision to be present in their children’s lives, to learn and improve in their roles as “dad”. Happy Father’s Day to all the dad’s who are striving daily to do their best for their children…
