You only know what you've been taught. Let's be honest. This past Father's Day was an eye opening look at what we have created in our families. Many church pastors reiterrated the idea of men being there for their children. But what does that really mean? Are we teaching our sons how to be fathers? Telling your teenage son to "use protection" when you discover he's sexually active is not the same as preparing him for fatherhood. What specific skills does a man need to have in order to be a co-parent to the mother of his children? How does he learn those skills if his father is absent? How have you prepared your sons for their eventual role as fathers? What did you model in the house your son grew up in? If your children are grown, what are you observing in their behavior? What kind of parent are they to your grandchildren? If you could do things differently in the raising of your children and preparing your sons for fatherhood, what would you change?
