Fatherhood is Leadership

Steve Blow of the Dallas Morning News recently wrote an article saying the children of unwed mothers suffer from poverty and a host of social ills.

Mr. Blow singled out another ethnic group for suffering the highest percentage of unwed mothers. I'm so glad he did not single out the Hispanics!

Our children are our treasure. We owe them the best life we can give them, and that starts out with a complete family: a mother and a father.

A father needs to be more than a provider and protector. He needs to be the leader of his family, and that includes leading in morality and education. After our love, the most important thing we can give our children is a good education.
