What is the role of father?

Your children are not your second chance at life

"A father is a man who expects his children to be as good as he meant to be." -Carolyn Coats. It's true that most of us want our kids to be our ideal image of ourselves - without all of the mistakes or faults that we think we have. But it's not very realistic. Each child is an individual - not the second chance of the parent to live as they wished they had lived. Give your children space to be themselves and explore life their way. Your job is to show them right from wrong, good from bad, and protect them until they are old enough to go their own way.
