    Congratulations to all of those who call themselves Fathers and who have kids that call them, Dad, Pop, or Papa. Any male can become a father, but it takes an involved father to be a dad.
    Being a Faddah can be a muddah.
    Happy Father’s Day, Gents.
    And thanks to the Mothers who put up with us as we learned how to become Fathers.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    Respectful Troll, excellent comment.
    My first reaction on seeing the cartoon: Enjoy them while they’re like that, Dad. I’m helping raise the 2nd generation, after the 1st decided it was too much trouble.

    I agree. Hard to resist.

    Thank God for my father, he taught me to be a good dad. Hopefully one day my boys can say that about me.
    If more men stepped up and became real fathers and dads and not a “baby daddy” the world would be a better place.
    And again thank God for being a real father and for his son.

    Many of my friends who “served” had the same thing as fathers that I did, PTSD made it difficult to feel “attachment” and “love”, even for our kids. I was lucky enough to have a spouse who helped me through over three difficult decades before getting “help” with the problem. Many were not so lucky. Also, one of the greatest things my kids DID understand, as they grew a little older, was why that distance existed, and both said “it’s okay, Dad.”


    Now, after 13 years “service” my son is having the same problems, but at least folks are there for him much sooner to offer help, and guidance. (He also calls me frequently, as Dad has “been there, done that”, and can understand that just listening is often doing, a LOT!)


    Sorry to hear your situation, really, Ima, but it explains a lot.

    Hatred is an emotion we don’t need in our makeup.

    that not all can come up to our standards…
    What the H is that to mean. Standers are to be strived for. yes not always achived but I have very high standers for me and my boys! I STRIVE for them and sometimes I do fall short and that is where the forgiveness Christ has taught me comes into play. Not this equal outcome crap you liberals want. Sorry does not happen in the real world.
    i am not perfect, but I am forgiven. One of the reasons I know I can be forgiven is that although I may fall short sometimes i am always striving for the best. And I am sorry “baby daddy” is as low as you can go and just expecting that is WRONG! it is not about oh you good and they so bad. it is about the decay of our moral standards.

    That is a challenge of hope! And yes that is a statement of we must replace the low standard of males having bastard children and being “baby daddies” with a change to love and being a real father!

    @Adrian Snare

    Thank you, I have been reading and rereading your statement and I just realized why it P’d me off so. It is the defeatist attitude you and most liberal try to heap on someone else, using what you think is the others own beliefs against them only to try to bring yourself up by putting them down. Thank you in that I now can identify the problem and hopefully bring a stop to it, if I can not then I can identify it and let it go back and not bother me.

    When I was a kid me and my sisters would grab on to my dad’s legs and he would drag us across the tile while we were giggling the whole time.

    @Ms. Ima

    Thanks,
    but please, stop feeding trolls. The more you feed them the more you become one…. I learned that way back in the usenet days. It is a hard habit to break. I think that is one reason I got snared,
