What does being a father mean to you?
Being a father means to provide me best effort towards showing my child that his dad loves, cherishes, and understands him. Constantly communicating as well as showing that I am here for him.
Describe your experience with your father growing up and how that impacted you today.
What things did you take from your experience growing up into your own fatherhood journey?
I learned the importance of a child being able to express themselves to their parents while maintaining a respect level. My goal is to maintain composure while discovering the root cause for their behavior.
Have you had any obstacles on your fatherhood journey?
Why yes. My ex and I separated during the pregnancy. It’s tough being away from my son as a result.
What advice would you give others new on their fatherhood journey?
Keep a level head. You are the most important piece of this puzzle. Stay strong. Embrace those emotions
If you could write a quick letter to your father, starting with “Dear Father,” what would you say?
Thanks for the lessons.
