Parent as a team

“I believe there is not enough togetherness between husband and wife in raising children today – too much is left to the mother alone. Mothers are not enough, but that is no slur on the mothers at all. They often do a great job but it’s just that having a mother without a father only gives the kids half the opportunities to learn about life that they would otherwise have. Having both a mother and a father is the way it was designed to be.” – Harley Hayward, pastor

  • Sit down with your wife and discuss the best way to divide the parenting responsibilities in your family
  • Think about what unique qualities you have to share with your children
  • Your perspective as a father is essential to the development of your children.
