Thankfully I was raised around a dad that was always willing to tell me, “I love you son.” Even after he’d just disciplined me for something I’d done wrong, he’d always let me know, “I love you son.” That was his way of saying, “I’ll never stop loving you. No matter what you do.” This past weekend I got to spend some time with my dad and at least twice he told me how much he loved me. I am SO thankful for a dad who was man enough to tell me he loved me.
Dads, you cannot tell your children “I love you” enough. Trust me, one of the biggest fears that they have is messing up so bad that their parents eventually stop loving them! We need to ALWAYS communicate to our kids that there is NOTHING they can do to make us stop loving them!
I am sick and tired of the men who refuse to tell their kids they love them because “their daddy didn’t do this for them.” BE A MAN … tell your kids you love them … A LOT!!!
