Children Need Fathers Too
by Rachael Graham
(St Catherine Jamaica)
To every child that is born into this world there are two people who are responsible for that child. 'It is the responsibility of those two people because they made a decision together, a child is a result of that decision at least 90% of the time.
We must not forget that a child is responsible for coming into this world; a child came into this world without a choice. They had no say in the actions of their parents, we can never tell the outcome of any child. Some of us do not realize how blessed we are.
FATHERS MAKE A LOT OF DIFFERENCE TO SONS AS WELL AS THEIR DAUGHTERS. 'The book of Proverbs tells us that Fathers ought to Teach their Sons & Mothers ought to Teach their daughters, 'In fact it is written that older women to Teach the younger women, Older men to Teach younger men. It takes a real man to teach his Son how to live; only a man can teach a boy how to be a man.
A woman can Teach her Sons how to be well mannered, respecting others and himself and all other things but' ''ONLY A MAN CAN TEACH A YOUNG BOY HOW TO BE A MAN'' I have been told some things such as:
Dem no no beta, 'A so dem man ya stay' dem can't give wat dem no have, Well' I know for sure that My God made everything in this world and it was good.
There are things which changes a man, The Lust of flesh, Strong drink, Drugs, Depression, Gambling, Mental
health, Bad up bringing that sometimes stays with a young person even when they are grown into a man.
SOME OF THESE THINGS CAN BE A STUMBLING BLOCK IN THE WAY OF BEING A GOOD PARENT.
''HOW EVER'' FATHERS SHOULD BE THE HEAD OF THE HOUSEHOLD EVEN TODAY, ESPECIALLY IN THESE TIMES. ''CHILDREN NEED FATHERS TO GUIDE THEM, REASSURE THEM, LOVE THEM & TEACH THEM WHAT IS RIGHT AND HOW TO BE A GOOD CHILD''.
Anyone can Teach a child to read and write but a Father should be there until their children are old enough to go out into the world, be a part of society and live what they learn.
The children of today are the people of tomorrow and they should be taught about life, responsibilities etc. 'Well' I would like to say to all you 'FATHERS' You are the earthly Father but there's a Heavenly FATHER who's the Father of all Fathers and we all have to give an account.
We ought to be good stewards over our Finances, Our homes and possessions, what about your children????
Daughters need their Fathers to assure them that they are Loved, This will build their confidence that they won’t just fall for lies & lip service
From strange men and boys. ''CHILDREN NEED FATHERS TO LEAD AND TEACH THEM
''Every time a man lay together with a woman in a SEXUAL ACT REMEMBER' IT IS POSSIBLE THAT YOU WILL PRODUCE A CHILD WITH THAT WOMAN.
You can't just protect against infections, PROTECT YOUR SELF FROM BEING A FATHER WHO WILL NEVER BE THERE FOR YOUR CHILDREN.
