Father Them… Anyway


The idea for this post came to me this morning when I saw a quote from Mother Teresa of Calcutta.mother teresa

I have read it several times before and tried to use it as a model  myself when dealing with difficult people in my life, but today it rings true as a model for fathers…

Here is my own version to help Dad’s everywhere deal and cope with the most difficult job of parenting…


Children can be hard to manage and control…

Lead them anyway

Children can make messes and fuss when things don’t go their way…

Play with them anyway

Children can say horrible things that sound disrespectful and scathing…

Forgive them and allow them to Rewind anyway

Children can be expensive and require us to sacrifice so much…

 Support them anyway

Children are always breaking the rules…

Be clear and firm about your rules anyway

Sometimes it’s just easier to give in than to deal with the melt downs…

Children are begging for consequences…

So,  follow through anyway

Children are needy and should be able to do more things on their own…

They are begging to be shown new skills…

So help and teach them anyway

Lead, Play, Forgive, Support, Be Clear and Firm, Follow Through, Help and Teach your children. 

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY TO OUR CLIENTS (These dads are some of the best dads on the Planet who really care and want their families to function better… They know they cannot do this difficult job on their own and together with their child’s mother they have decided to get the support they need to make this job a little more doable).
