I Admire a Man Who Is a Good Father

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 11,613 People

    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 had one, admire my father,

    a man who didn't always understand what I was interested in but still took time to show interest in me. That was more then a person who provided money to the house and was a person I could count on to talk to, for a hug when was down and while not always able to comprehend what...

    Ever since Mom died in '89,

    it's been Pops and me. Dad's a kind of a Manager of the Royal Stables in Abu Dhabi. It doesn't pay much, but he managed to look after us. I am helping out too, but without Pop, I don't know where I'd be. He's trying to fill the gap that Mom left inside both of us, It hurts to...

    I fought back tears when he told me

    that he would always try to give his daughters mother the world, because she was the mother of his heart. Not only in mourning because I could only have part of him, but because I was happy for them and glad to be reminded of love. It is sometimes easy to forget that some of...

    A priest I know once said (and I'm

    paraphrasing): "A father has the task of representing God's love to his children. If a father doesn't do a good job of conveying his love to his children, his children may find it more difficult to feel God's love" I hope some day as a father I will be able to be a like a...

    I Admire both a man and a woman

    who are good mother and father. But unfortunately if the statistics that 90% of parents in this day and age continue to spank their kids. The good parents are rare to find. Maybe that explains why our world is a mess. Most people either spank their kids (which is cruel) or they...

    in the event I have kids I want their father to

    always let them know how proud he is of them and how much he lives them. my dad was a good dad but I wish growing up he would have let me know those things. I mean I could tell but it would have been nice actually hearing it.

    My dad has been an amazing example to me.

    I love him! I was gone for 18 months in a situation where I could only email once a week, and could only talk face to face twice a year. When I got homesick, I would always want my dad. He knows how to make things better. He wants me to happy and follow my dreams. I am a daddy's...

    I like seeing guys interact with children.

    It's really attractive to some of us females. Idk, I guess it just gives us an insight of how you would be a father to our children if we were to ever decide one day to have any together. Lol XD

    One of my friend's father died 10 years ago.

    SO she has a stepfather and he is really the opposite of all bad stereotypes about Stepparents. He loves is stepdaughter dearly and is always there for her and helps and supports her. It is a wonderful proove that blood dosen't decide. Only the heart.

    when my husband goes to pick up his daughter (my stepdaughter), how excited she gets just to see him ... she runs up to the car and as soon as he opens the door she runs to give him a hug. Makes me realize the importance of Dads and sometimes this role is overlooked in society...

    He listens to me, he helps me,

    he gives good advice, he always tries to protect me (sometimes a little too much), he never hits me or yells at me, he actually cares about my feelings... He's not perfect. He can be a stuffy, cranky pain in my butt... but he's mine and I love him.
