Growing up without a father is not an easy thing for anyone. The father is the strong hold (or should be) the strong hold for every family.
Proverbs 22:6 – “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
There is no book formual on how to be the perfect father or parent.The father is to train and discipline his son. In this training and discipling I believe that there are 5 things every father should teach his son.
5. How to play catch
The time spent playing catch are some of the most memorable times in the boy’s life. He’ll always remember the time dad came home to spend just tossing the ball around talking about the day.
4.How to mow the lawn
Learning to mow the lawn may seem weird, but it teaches the value of hard work and teaches to have respect for the family’s house hold appearance. Not only the appearance of the yard but how anything the son does reflects back on to the family.
3.How to drive
Learning to drive is a right of passage for any teenager. In a boy’s life as the father teaches him to drive he is also showing him how to be responsible. This is also a time for the father to show trust by letting him take the family car on the first date.
2. How to love/respect his mother
If the father shows his son how to love and respect his mother. The son will learn how to love and respect other woman.
1. How to pray
If a father that is man enough to admit to his son that he does not have all the answers the son will learn how to be humble. It is the fathers job to teach his son to pray when times are hard and to turn to the Lord when times are hard. Isaiah 38:19 The living, the living, he thanks you, as I do this day; the father makes known to the children your faithfulness.
Isaiah 38:19 “The living, the living, he thanks you, as I do this day; the father makes known to the children your faithfulness.”
