when growing up some of us were privileged to be raised in a small community characterized by fatherhood values and responsibility of raising a well cultured children. fathers then had close relationship with their children because they value such relationship and they are proud to raise well-behaved and successful children that will later carry on the name of the family where they stop. fathers pay more attention to their kids no matter the trade or career they want to build .
they know that without training their children their heritage will fall like the walls of Jerusalem. the fathers of today have failed the society because while they pursue to provide and cater for the kids ,they ignore the utmost responsibility. which is the art of a close relationship and training the kids must benefit to build a better life for himself and his immediate environs. fathers today hardly communicate with their children to know how they feel, what they feel, and their level of exposure to the bad things of the society through peer pressure which can only be balanced by child-to father relations. this neglect has affected even our locality by the way negative social vices are promoted. from drug addiction to sex addiction to ganging and so on. fathers must wake up as a matter of urgency to rise up to this virus contaminating homes and society .
fathers should endeavor to carry along their parenting responsibility with the suit case of their career so that their kids will have a role model and an active father not just by financial obligation alone.
