Five Fathers; Five Styles
The oldest son has two boys.
He's a good father because he listens to them. He tries to be fair and let them explain why they behave the way they do. He spends time with them.
The second son has three boys and two step-daughters.
He's a good father because he plays with them. And, he makes the rules clear and expects them to follow those rules. He spends time with them.
The third son has two daughters and a step son and step daughter.
He's a good father because he spends most of his free time with them. He has made career choices that put his children over his livelihood. He spends time with them.
The son-in-law has three sons and one daughter.
He is a good father because he expects his children to work and to help around the home. He has taught his children to work and to be strong in the church. He spends time with them.
The husband has three sons and two daughters.
He is a good father because he supports his children. He listens to them, encourages them, and loves them. He spends time with them.
Each of these fathers love their spouse. And, that also makes them a very good father.
Hooray for dads who are good, honorable, and decent.
I'm forever grateful for the fathers in my life; including my own father and father-in-law.
Fathers; a good idea.
