Fathers should stop neglecting children

One of the most underestimated tragedies of our day is the psychological and physical distance of fathers from their children.
The plan from the beginning of time was that the father would lay the foundation for a young boy’s heart and pass on to him essential knowledge and confidence.
A father should be the first man in his life and the most important. However, many fathers are abrogating their roles.
Generation after generation, men have grown up fatherless, without exposure to male role models. They do not know what it takes to be a father, so they abdicate the role. Like their own fathers before them, they are absent or invisible.
Men must fight to stay fully present in the home setting. Many of them are afraid that they will not do a good job as fathers, but thankfully children are much more gracious and accepting than we are of ourselves.
