Today, the world is celebrating Fathers’ day. Fatherhood is the sacred gift given from God with great responsibility to nurture and raise kids to become responsible members of the community and the society. Fatherhood is the quintessential role that has huge stake on how society ought to be. Collectively, fatherhood, likewise motherhood, through parenting we make up the families, communities and the society in generations. Therefore, fatherhood as the role model in parenting should be celebrated every second, minute, hour, day, week, month and year that we raise and empower children. This role is not only to be assumed today by the materialistic gifts and moments as we commemorate the “Fathers’ Day”, rather to be cherished in each second when we make multiple tough and decisions on parenting. We need to grasp the reality that each and every decision we make as parents, small and big, do have negative or positive outcome to our children today or tomorrow. This is the fact that too often get ignored in the decision making process of parenting and many will wander why thing and or life to our teenagers and children are playing out contrary to the parents’ wishes.
