    Unfortunately, the man I thought would make a

    I wish I had a good father,

    and it always makes me cry when I see good dads out there with their children. I wish a good father would adopt me and accept me for who I am

    So you always hear about bad fathers,

    so are then bad moms. I only one I can think of is my aunts friend who takes care of his daughter on his own. I will raise my children unlike my father who I don't talk to,

    I could not think of a more perfect father

    This is a good father.

    It takes character to be a good father.

    You cannot hide from your fears or your problems. You cannot hide from your destructive guilty pleasures. You children see them all. They may not know what it is, but they will feel it. A good father will accept the pain of discipline. He will allow correction. With humility...

    but unfortunately the man I thought it was but its totally ***** irresponsible, I admire a man who can take good care of his child and also to his family. (not only for financially for being there when his needed him the most!)

    My father has always been a great dad.

    He's very masculine, hard working, and strong. I admire him greatly. He's always been supportive, understanding and loving to my siblings and I. I can always trust him and talk to him if I need to, and I know he'll be there for me. I'd love to have more older men in my life.

    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.
