HBO — to Sue re: Committed Fathers

Sue: “I love to see Dads taking an active role in raising their children. Heath Ledger has the financial freedom to make that choice, and others do it for the family’s benefit regardless of financial situation. More power to him and all you dedicated dads.”

DFO: Sue made a wonderful statement about faith last week. And she scores again here. The importance of loving fathers in a child’s life simply can’t be overstated. My kids are raised and out of the house. But I take comfort in the fact that I almost never missed any activity of importance to them. Also, I established the tradition when they were in high school of taking them out to coffee, to discuss anything they wanted to. Our coffees lasted for hours, so I think they enjoyed them, too. I pity the father that doesn’t take time to enjoy his kids.
