Are There Any Real Fathers Left?

There are hundreds of blogs online about child care, child birth, child rearing and any other subjects about children.  These sites and blogs have an unlimited amount of information that can be very helpful in this sometimes daunting school for parents.  One of the things that I have noticed is that most of these sites are from the mother's perspective.

Nothing is wrong with a Mother's perspective at all.  It is very agreeable and most times detrimental to the truth seeker to take the advice of a mother in reference to her children.  Generally, it is she who will have been in "the trenches" with her babies and will have more insight as to how to "make it" when it comes to bringing up the little ones.

However, you can't discount the Father's perspective.  While society and the media haven't been to flattering about male roles in our children's lives, there are a very large number of fathers who are excellent examples and their wisdom is paramount to a complete and loving household for the next generation that will represent us, the future and the planet one day.

I would like to put these fathers on a pedestal for a minute.  I would like to share the insight that these fathers may have to offer and with that, hopefully, offer some assistance to the many parents out there who are struggling through those first years with that new life (or lives).

Stay tuned for more blogs and information about the struggles and joys of raising children...
