What do we say to that
When I first became a father it was a very emotional time in my life. I was 19 so I did not have to get the you ruined your life speech. I got the you need to get it together speech. Finding a job, I was familiar with work because my father made sure of that. I had to earn any money I got when I was coming up. I kept saying I can't wait till I grow up, Boom there it was and I was not ready, but I grew up anyway. I took on the responsibility of fatherhood and I made a bunch of mistakes and I learned to ask questions and take some advice. I don't think that fathers today have it better I believe it's a different level of difficulty but the same skills to work with. To much I gotta do me to soon causes gaps in growth of our young men and it warps our young women. As parents we can't change the past, but we have the power to set a bright future for our Community(hood). If we really want to see our children live long enough to enjoy their children, our grands. We have to engage them now, right now, not tomorrow, right now. I learned that God gave me a sure direction because I was looking for a solid answer to my problems. It's not easy to get out my own way some days, but when I do and ask him to take the load I get all the wisdom and blessing to give to my family first then others like you. God Bless.
