I’ve seen much heartbreak and despair in my lifetime. Many of these people’s lives took a turn for the worse because of things that happened to them while they were children. As fathers, we have to power to end this cycle. A
Abolitionist and writer, Frederick Douglass once said:
“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.”
There is so much truth in that statement. We only have a short time to influence our children’s lives. While they’re in our care, we have a responsibility to encourage them, motivate them, teach them, love them, and make them feel safe and secure. If we do these things on a regular basis, we can build a nation of strong children.
