As parents, we have the ability to impact our children like no one else can. While the mother’s role of nurturing and caring is vitally important, without the father’s approval and validation the child will fill a void. Every person needs the blessing from their father. Many adults still struggle today; low self-esteem, working all the time, trying to prove that they’re good enough…all because of their fathers lack of affirmation. Their father never told them “I’m proud of you.” He never made them feel approved, so they’re still trying to measure up, gain this approval that can only come from a father.Real men hug their children.
