Being a parent and a father can be an interesting and trying experience. Someone said, “Fathers spend the first part of a child’s life urging him to talk and walk, and the rest of his childhood telling him to sit down and keep quiet.” A son who was in college wrote home to his dad. He said, “Dear Dad, Please let me hear from you more often, even if it’s only five or ten.” One day a woman left her baby daughter in her husband’s care while she was busy doing some work in another room. He immediately buried himself in his newspaper, and forgot all about the baby until he heard a series of thumps, followed by a horrendous cry. Instantly he knew that the baby had fallen down the stairs. He called out to his wife, “Honey Come quick Our little girl just took her first 24 steps” Dads are very special people to their kids and they have a tremendous impact on their lives and in our society… Statistics: 25 million children do not live with their fathers. 63% of youth suicides are (FFH) 85% of children with behavior disorders are FFH 80% of rapists are FFH 71% of high school drop outs are FFH 70% of teen pregnancies are FFH 75% of all the youth in chemical abuse centers are FFH 85% of youths in prison are FFH
