  3. 3. In 48 cultures around the world crime rates were highest among adults who as children had been raised solely by women. Closeness with parents was the common factor in hypertension, coronary heart disease, malignant tumors, mental illness and suicide. A study of 39 teenage girls suffering from anorexia nervosa showed that 36 of them had one common denominator; lack of closeness with their fathers. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com

  6. 6. And let me say something up front again, when I say fathers, I am not referring solely to biological fathers; I am also speaking of step- dads as well. Over 40% of all marriages in the US involve a remarriage of 1 or both parties. 1 out of 3 Americans (80 million people) is either a step parent, step child or step sibling. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
  7. 7. 1 out of 5 children under the age of 18 is a step child. And by the year 2,000 step families (involving 1 spouse who has children) and complex families (in which both spouse have children) will soon be the majority. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
  8. 8. Now, If you’re like most men – even those who had a poor or harmful experience with their own fathers – you have a general idea of the kind of father you want to be. You have a picture in your mind of what a model father looks like: you want to be the kind of father: www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
  9. 9. whose children feel secure, confident, loved and accepted whose children save sex for marriage, and remain faithful to their spouse in marriage. whose children develop a reputation as men and women of integrity; honest, ethical, hardworking. whose child might say, “my dad keeps his promises. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
  10. 10. Whose children stand up to unhealthy peer pressure, children who develop healthy friendships,. whose kids say no to drugs and alcohol and risky behavior. whose children quickly admit their mistakes, who are forgiving and patient with others and who enjoy a healthy sense so self- esteem and self confidence. whose children have a hard time picking out a fathers day card (not because they say too much but say too little) www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
  11. 11. That’s the kind of father we all want to be. That’s the kind of father I want to be. But I know that I am not all I should be. And I know that for me to do this I need a model, I need an example of a father that I can pattern myself after, a father from who I can learn from and imitate. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
