Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 6,820 People

    I do and the father I admire the most is me!

    I feel very blessed to have a natural ability to be a good father but I also put in the effort needed to raise three very special children who are now three very special adults. I also feel very blessed because children just seem to naturally adore me. I have not a clue as to...

    I'm with a man who can't have kids.

    I admire the fact that he says my children are his. He and I were together throughout most of my pregnancy with my son, who is almost 3 months old now. He got to enjoy my pregnancy with me :) My 6 year old daughter adores him. He loves my children unconditionally and is so...

    I am a single father with custody to my 2 year

    old son (over a year now). I am 24 and I bet my story will make your jaw drop. I know how hard it is men. We can do this.

    I do and very much, I admire men

    who are good fathers. It is because I never had a dad, he physically existed but I honestly never ever in my entire life felt that he did. Not in a single situation, not for a single moment, I just can’t recall that I ever felt it and I sometime wonder, how does it feel like...

    About two weeks ago I was having a quick bite

    with a friend and an adorable little boy caught my attention. He was being a typical toddler; squirming and not wanting to eat his food. He was right on the verge of going into a full meltdown mode when his dad intervened. He distracted the little boy and began playing a game...

    A Tale Of Two Fathers

    I never had a good father.

    It is amazing to see a man be a good father.

    It is admirable and is a very good quality to have :) it is also very sweet and romantic for a guy to be a good father and it is something every girl should look for in a man :)

    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.

    I do admire a man that can be a good father.

    My father was a good for nothing bastard, who was nothing but an abusive man, father, and husband. My daughter's father was not abusive but he just wasn't around enough to be consider a father, so any man who steps up and is a good father, is good in my book.

    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!

    Footballers (yawn), film 'stars',

    'celebrities' and that ilk are ten a penny, and not much use beyond what they do. A man who is a good father is, it seems, becoming an increasing rarity. Good fathers are the real men of this world!

    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.
