We have a responsibility each and every day to be the best father and partner we can be in raising our kids. Loving our kids is part and parcel with loving and respecting their moms. Showing up, being present and modelling the kind of behaviour we would like our kids to emulate comes with the job but don’t forget to enjoy the process. Life moves quickly – take a moment this Father’s Day to appreciate all that you have in being a dad and spend some time with the people that make up your family. They, and you, are worth the effort.
Happy Father’s Day.
