To all the dads out there, enjoy your father’s day weekend and your family’s appreciation for all that you bring to your family. Wives and mothers will agree with me that being a loving father also earns you respect from your children’s mother. A marriage is enhanced when both parents are actively involved in their children’s care. Your dedication and care to your children change the world for this generation, and your legacy carries into future generations.
So often media belittles the contribution of dads, or makes them out to be incompetent buffoons. On the contrary, fathers deserve the respect they desire. All kids need their dads to be involved and active fathers. I’m lucky my father has always been present for me, and I’m equally fortunate that my kids have a world-class father whom they can always count on.
If you have ever been a dad or ever had a dad (or even if you’ve ever known a terrific dad), join me in giving thanks to all the great dads out there!
