At a time when heroes seem to be needed more than ever, this upcoming Father’s Day couldn’t come at a better time.
Okay, let’s be very honest. Not all fathers represent the ideal paternal figure. Too often headlines report cases of abuse and neglect by men, who should be on the frontline for the children in their care.
That is why this Sunday is so important to give credit and a pat-on-the-back for the men who nurture and serve as positive role models for kids. Sure, at times these fellas seem to be preoccupied with work and they may spend a bit too much time on the golf course or the couch. But when it comes to their kids, their priorities are right in order.
There are many great stories about these guys. The folks over at Children’s Health have firsthand knowledge of them, having witnessed and worked with those dad-type heroes. As the countdown to Father’s Day is underway, Children’s Medical Center Foundation has provided stories about some of these men, who have been through gut-wrenching times with their kids.
Just look over to the right side of the MySweetCharity page and check the Children’s notice like the one pictured here. A different story will be provided there every other day until Sunday.
BTW, the stories, like the best things in life, are absolutely free for the reading.
