Not all fathers can be a dad, and not all mothers have what it takes to be a mom. We are often given titles in hopes that we will, with time, fulfill them.
From my perspective, a child needs both parents in their lives. We do not need the father trying to play the part of the mother, and we do not need the mother trying to be the child's father.
When we become parents, we do not realize the impact our absence will have on a child's life and how their future becomes their sacrifice because many of them are still dealing with their trauma from childhood.
Far too often, we pass on generational pain because many of us still suffer subconsciously from the trauma of our past that remains.
Unknowingly, we continue the same pattern we learned as children that maybe our parents were taught that if we do not break the cycle, our children will cause the same pain and hurt to their children.
From my experience, hurt people hurt others.
Admittedly, I do not have all the answers, but I know that the changes we are unwilling to make will cause us to make irreversible mistakes in our children's lives.
The intention of this book is not to discuss why you should learn how to choose a suitable mate before having children. The purpose of this book is to address the importance of a dad in a child's life from a male's perspective.
You do not need to be the perfect dad. It would help your children if you were willing to invest the time to deserve the title.
Dad's Matter in a child's life.
