It is easier for a father to have children than for children to have a real father.
—Pope John XXIII
Though we have some ideas of a father’s role and responsibility, society as a whole, does not really have a clear idea what it represents.
How does the presence or absence of fathering impact our children? What do children need from their fathers?
In this fast paced society, it is difficult and rare for parents to reflect on the effects of their parenting roles and the parent-child relationship. As a result, the parenting process is seldom the result of basic decisions made consciously and thoughtfully.
This talk is designed for us to examine some of these questions and to help us meet the needs of our children.
