Families need fathers – Did you/Do you have a father?

children need fathers

This is an article in response to all the public comments I heard in the mainstream media about women not needing men. I really don’t understand the constant war on men and public humiliation that news outlets or TV shows rain down on men. It reminds me of the saying my grandfather used to say to me “Don’t bite the hand that feeds you”. Regardless of your political or social beliefs families need fathers and fathers need families.  Follow me in if you dare.

How often do you hear the term deadbeat dad, or absentee father or nobodaddy?  If you don’t hear the term you see the concept portrayed on almost every TV sitcom, advertisement or movie.

No amount of girl power, charity fundraising, pink or one-sided divorce decisions are every going to change the universal need to balance masculine and feminine. The concept of manhood has been lost for decades now which is just one of the symptoms of children growing up without fathers. The […]
