Male mentors fill the hole in children’s lives - Parentcentral.ca
I found this an interesting article. There are so many good men out there who would never dream of hurting a child in any way but the ones who do, give men a bad name.
It is really not fair to men in general.
Boys really need role models especially when they are brought up by their mothers for whatever reason.
Some "fathers" don't deserve the honour of being called "father" but what a priviledge it would be for a good man to step into the role of being a mentor to a young boy. Big Brothers, Big Sisters are agencies here in Canada who offer this service.
To be a father is to be present in the life of the child, not just provide the means of getting food and shelter. Going to a baseball game, going for a hike, going fishing, or just hanging out together is so important to a child and teaches them that they are loved.
So many boys lack this nowadays and it is a role that is so valuable and worthwhile for a volunteer to fill.
Have you thought of what a good influence you could be on a young person's life?
Thanks for dropping by.
