“To be the father of growing daughters is to understand something of what Yeats evokes with his imperishable phrase ‘terrible beauty.’ Nothing can make one so happily exhilarated or so frightened: it’s a solid lesson in the limitations of self to realize that your heart is running around inside someone else’s body. It also makes me quite astonishingly calm at the thought of death: I know whom I would die to protect and I also understand that nobody but a lugubrious serf can possibly wish for a father who never goes away.”
― Christopher Hitchens, Hitch 22: A Memoir
Any man can create a life and become a dad.
But it takes a real man to care for and shape a child into a decent human being.
Real fatherhood isn’t about making lots of cash and spoiling your family with gifts or take them on a trip two times a year. It also isn’t about sending your children to the poshest schools out there.
A real father understands the importance of family and always puts his wife and children first.
True fatherhood is about always being there for your family and not leaving them behind when life gets too hard. It’s about standing by your precious ones and lifting them up when they fall down. It’s about doing everything in your power, and more, to support and help your family live the best life they possibly can. It’s about keeping the family together, no matter how stormy the skies may get.
True fatherhood means being willing to dedicate the necessary time and effort to your family even when you feel exhausted and completely out of your comfort zone.
A true father is always ready to make compromises and sacrifice his own needs and even happiness for the wellbeing of his loved ones. He is the one who shows his children the meaning of unconditional love and care.
Being a true father is about setting an example for your sons on how to treat women with respect. He treats women with dignity, kindness, generosity, and care.
True fatherhood is about teaching your kids about the crucial importance of morality, kindness, loyalty, honesty, and patience. It’s about never lying or playing games with your family or anyone else. It’s about teaching your kids how to build lasting and respectful relationships based on kindness and trust.
True fatherhood is about teaching your children to act with decency.
It’s about never calling your children or wife “useless,” or “stupid.” It’s about being able to control your emotions and never ever making your family feel threatened by you.
A true, dedicated father places his family at the top and worships them above all else. He knows that there is nothing more important than his family, even if he gets offered the whole world in exchange. He is the one who knows that there is no other love like family love and does all that he can to make them happy.
True fatherhood is about being an example and an inspiration to your wife and children.
It’s about teaching your children the importance of working on yourself and growing both personally and professionally. It’s about teaching your children how to unleash their full potential and make the world a better place.
A true father is always working on making his wife and children feel happy and loved, and he feels the happiest when he knows that his wife and children are happy.
True fatherhood is about knowing what your children like and dislike and doing all that you can to help them work on fulfilling their dreams in life.
A true, loving, and caring father never lets his own problems ruin the happiness of his children.
He is the one who, no matter how hard life gets, never allows his children to suffer.
A true and worthy father prides himself on the fact that his children see him as their best friend, their role model, their teacher, and their coach.
Having this kind of father is the best thing any family could wish for.
