How Do You Become a Good Father?

How do you become a good father? That question motivated me to start this blog seven years ago. My biological father wasn’t around and I struggled to fill in the gaps and learn about fatherhood on my own. Thankfully I encountered mentors and other fathers who shared their stories and gave me encouragement along the way.

Every day, I work hard to be a good father and there are millions of men around the world who are working towards the same goal. We want to love and nurture our children so they will feel safe and secure in the knowledge that their fathers are fully present and investing in their lives.

In the following video, a group of dads share their fatherhood stories. Like me, they are striving to be better dads and working to build stronger relationships with their children.

Stay Strong,
