I am delighted you have found me at The Fathering Channel and are thinking about your role as a father, or father figure in a kid’s life. Why am I delighted? Because I think the quality of fathering can make or break a child, determine the character of a family and influence the health of a nation.
If you are a busy dad, chances are your time with your family and kids one-on-one time is limited. Don’t let your kids feel like they are orphans. Remember – whether you are a father, stepfather, grand-father or father equivalent – you hold this country’s future in your hands. And how do I know this?
