I state this because they are. They have so much impact on their children's lives

I very much appreciate my father.
For if it wasn't for him I do not know where I would be today
Do not get me wrong, mothers have impact on her children too...but not like the father.

Explain in detail what you are talking about.

It may be true.. but you're just making a statement with nothing to back it..

Look at Obama, he turned out pretty good and he was only raised by his mother.

Kids have been raised without dads since the beginning of time.

He was raised by his grandparents actually...They gave him security- I think as long as kids feel secure, they stand a shot at turning out okay.

I think so to, fathers have more of an impact in their sons and daughters lives, children are more willing to listen to their dads than mothers, often they see him as their authority figure, often mom does to..

I agree totally! I too had a wonderful father and thank God everyday for his wisdom. My husband is a wonderful father. Our boys respect him and need him in their lives. He was deployed to the Middle East for 6 months, and these boys were missing him terribly. He is a large part of their lives, my oldest son is in his second year of college and calls my husband more than me. It doesn't bother me because I know he needs a mans advice more than mine, Fathers mold sons and daughters. That is just a fact!!!

I love my father! He was a single dad who brought me up right. And its not easy for a man to raise a daughter but he did a dayum good job! I thank God I had my father. My mother had a lot going on and told me she left me with my dad because she knew hrs raise me right. I'm not saying she's not a good mom she was there tm I was 7. But in her mind she had to leave because she and my.dad stopped getting along. And she made bad choices as well. Anyway even though it was hard on my dad to raise me and my brother, he raised us to make use of our lives by making sure we had a good head on our shoulders. So I agree with this post.

That is rare. But didn't he have a grandfather that was involved in his life? Boys need men in their lives. Girls need them too. Moms are very important too. Both are very important in different ways.

I think the male voice however does command attention. That does help in getting a kids attention.

lol. A Marxist with Nazi undertones is classified as "pretty good"? He was raised by his grandparents who were self-described Communists.

WOW! That is really rare! I commend your father for what he did for his children, that is what a father is supposed to do! This actually makes me look at some black men differently. As long as there are men like your father in the black race...maybe there is still hope.

Good for you, your father, and your brother! I bet your brother is a good man too with a father like that! Shame on your mother for stepping out when it got tough though.

The way I look at it, a father is the foundation of a well-rounded family. If you do not have a good father or no father at all sometimes (I repeat sometimes) you will find yourself lost.

If you're a person to listen to the instruction of your father he can direct your path in a miraculous way.

Do not get me wrong, some people who lack a father turn out just fine but the impact of a father is so strong. Whether if he is good or a bad father his impact on you is strong.

And I remember a day when my sisters and I were trying on clothes on upstairs and my sister put on these high heel boots and I said, "father is not going to like that," and in a instance it was like we all were in cohesion. It was simply put: "father will not like that." And that was that. She did not wear the high heel boots. And that amazed me because I knew that if it was my mother standing in my father's place I would have said mother, "will not like that" but I'm pretty sure my sister would have worn the boots anyway. So...I don't know. Fathers guide you into who are to (maybe) become whether good or bad.

So what do you think about women laying with men that are worthless? Do you think that this should make it even the more important for women to pick good men since you have stated that you think the father is responsible for everything?

Maybe if women stop laying with thugs, sleeping with men at such a young age, and maybe if their mothers teach them some self respect and how to be good women, they won't make the bad decision to sleep with men they are not married too.

You agree with this? Mothers should teach their daughters betters since they will be the one stuck with the fatherless family.

Do you think women have any responsibility? Wouldn't this be why young bw are so stupid and make such horrible decisions in men?

he said that his grandfather worked all the time which most men do. So as far as "raising" and spending more time with the children... it was his grandmother, he even states that his grandmother AND mother played the most important roles in his life.

And wtf is wrong with Marxism?

No it's not. Many men don't have fathers or have fathers that or abusive, drunks, etc... Mothers instill emotional value in their children, men instill work ethic...

I don't see why black women have such a hard time understanding the importance of mothers in a child's life. Mothers nuture children etc... Fathers have a role but it is by no means more important than a mothers role.
