Parenting is not always easy with competing demands upon parents when raising children.
Mothers and fathers are not given the keys to good parenting and emulate the skills they recall from those own upbringing. Often a father will model the behaviours they learned from their father or a significant male in their lives.
But some fathers have had to learn the craft of fatherhood on their own as they did not have a significant male role model in their lives.
Children grow up so quickly and their years at school seem to fly by before we know it.
May this Fathers Day be a joyous one and support the great work and love that dads do with their children.
