Happy Father's Day Flickr Daddies* - a tribute
Summerblur Series # 5
Even more than wanting to be a hero, a father sees the aspiring hero in each of his children. Regardless their sex or age, every child yearns to see a reflection of themselves as a hero in their fa...ther’s heart and eyes.
Fathers have the biggest impact when they are personally engaged and fully involved in their children’s lives, interests, dreams and aspirations on a daily basis. They show acceptance and encouragement, and keep believing in their children to help them believe in themselves. They clearly communicate to uphold guidelines, firmly yet fairly, without belittling or micro-managing.
Delighting in their children, they love to have fun and play. It’s in the context of strong relationships with their parents that children best learn values, among others, for responsibility, integrity, worth ethics, cooperation, resiliency, optimism, and consciousness.
