Growing Good Men

The relationship between a father and his children is one of the most significant relationships that a man will ever have.  The impact that our fathers have on us and we as fathers have on our sons lasts a life time. Fatherhood really matters!

 

Every young man needs to hear and believe that he is good enough in his father’s eyes.  Every boy wants his father to give him a sense of male acceptance, affirmation and affection.  For a boy to become a man and to gain an understanding of masculinity he needs the guidance of good men and none more so than his father.
