    This is a good father.

    ... watching a child's face light up when Daddy comes into view. Eyes twinkling in admiration and awe, full smiles and cooing noises, Oooos and aahhhs, delightful giggles and squeals... all from hearing those three precious words from Dad.... Pull My Finger.

    Because I didn't grow up with a dad,

    so when I have kids I will love them with all of my heart and not abandon them

    You're a dysfunctional partner,

    but I know you'll be an absolutely amazing father. I love how you glow with anticipation. That one moment when everything in your life is in perfect balance for once. Despite any and everything, if it is true, I know you will always excel as a father... I'll never take that away...

    A Tale Of Two Fathers

    My own father abandoned me when I was young. My parents divorced when I was around 5. My mother is an unmedicated and undiagnosed person with a mental illness. I have no doubt that living with her was difficult for my father. She was difficult for me to live with. She made...

    Sadly, I have been unable to provide my

    children with a good father. I left their father when the children were young, due to physical abuse in the marriage. Tried for years for him to maintain contact with them, it was like flogging a dead horse! He has had nothing to do with them for 10 years now. Probably my...

    I try to be as a good a father

    as possible, but sometimes I fail. We all fail in one way or another, I suppose. Only if kids came with instruction manuals - but tiebreaks be robots!

    I felt it was appropriate to give a shout out

    to all the great dad's on Father's Day. I have so much respect for men that are good fathers. Growing up without my dad around and being a single mom at times myself, has given me a new found appreciation for those men that step up to the plate and not only provide financially...

    Who are we kidding. OF COURSE,

    we admire a MAN who is a GOOD FATHER. A male who isn't a good father is a ***** donor and has no right to be called a man. Real men raise their children.

    I could not think of a more perfect father

    than mine. Born as the oldest child of 8 sisters, my dad and his family grew up as a lower-class arabic family, at one point even reaching poverty. With the Lebanese Civil War starting, dad was forced to drop out of high school and be conscripted in the army. After completing...

    I see a man out somewhere with his kids,

    no mom in sight. I think it can be very sexy. There are so many good men out there taking care of their kids. I know women do it all the time but for a while the stigma was that men didn't take care of the kids. I love that this notion is changing. You go sexy dads!

    Yes, there are many great dads out there I've
