The Importance of Father's Involvement in Children's Lives

  • Today, i would like to invite all of us to ponder upon a significant role within the family structure - the role of a father in the lives of our children. 
  • Verily, as a father, we should shower our children with warmth and affection since they are young, with hope that they will be acquainted with our presence. 
  • The assumption that a father's role is only to provide sustenance of the family is no longer relevant. In reality, both parents play significant roles in shaping their children's lives.
