How to Become a Good Father When You Grew Up Without One

I think that two things happen. One is, the values my mother taught me, I thought to myself, well, those are values that any parent should have. So it doesn’t matter whether you’re the dad or the mom, loving your child, being responsible for your child, teaching them how to be honest and how to be responsible themselves and how to treat other people with kindness and how to respect themselves but respect others, how to work hard you know, those weren’t values that were just for moms to teach.
