This quote came from Angelina Jolie. It’s remarkable how much fatherhood has been minimized in our culture. We’re just looked at as optional. Fathers and mothers and interchangeable, right? Not at all. Each plays an important complimentary part in a child’s life. Both are needed.
But this article and video is from Mike Rowe, telling us that fathers are needed to help guide and properly channel our boys into becoming adult men.
God (or, for nonbelievers, millions of years of evolution) made us into men and women who become fathers and mothers. There was a reason we became so. There’s a reason we have anatomically different and emotionally different. We should celebrate that difference and allow fathers to have their place back with the family.
