“Becoming a man means doing the right thing even though it may be hard or difficult. Boys do what is easiest. A man does what is right, whether easy or not.”
– Carew Papritz
Fatherhood in 2019.
Where have all the good men gone?
While almost any man can father a child, there is so much more to the important role of being a dad in a child’s life. Men are encouraged to be brave, the breadwinners and career oriented, but how can we encourage them to be good dads? Studies show a positive and close relationship with your father is directly associated with an adolescents’ psychological well-being. But the role of fathers has changed so much in the last few generations. So where are the role models? Where do we encourage men to find the strength to be the dads their children really need?
Carew Papritz, the author of The Legacy Letters, has advice for Father’s on how to make the most of their relationship.
From the White House to Hollywood, we have seen many high profile scandals and misconduct involving family men in the past few years. It’s a heartbreaking reality, especially when children are in the mix.
We are still surrounded by good men and fathers, but sometimes it’s hard to recognize who they are. Sometimes we need a little reminder of what it means to be a good father in this day and age. Carew Papritz is not only an award-winning author, but he can also relate to the struggle of raising, teaching, and guiding your kids as a father in these modern times. He has interviewed and spoken to groups about what it means to be a father in this day and age. (See Mankind Project Interview Here)
