Fathers Of Sons
Things a son needs from his father.
He needs you to love his mother or at least have respect for her. When you love your wife, or the mother of your son, you are showing him how to treat his mother, his sisters, and all the women he’ll meet in his life. This will set the foundation for the relationships he will have later in his life.
He needs to see you fail, not just succeed
The best teacher is failure. The best type of failure to learn from is someone else’s. When your son sees you fail, and handle the failure well, he sees that it is okay to make mistakes and that mistakes can be great teachers. A boy who is not afraid of making mistakes will grow into a man positioned to accept and conquer great challenges.
He needs your leadership
You may or may not be the boss at work. But you are the leader of your family. Your son needs to see true leadership in your home. He needs to see you leading by serving. When he sees you leading by serving, he will better understand leadership.
He needs your love Unconditionally when your child feels unconditionally loved, he’s more likely to blossom.
