When I was growing up, all the children on my block and the two blocks that shared a triangular-shaped driveway with my side of the street, lived in family homes parented by a father and mother. Well, there was one friend who lived with her uncle and aunt (her mother came to visit her from time to time). Today, those blocks of homes are full of children and mothers, but hardly any fathers. That is so sad.
When I was in the child care classroom, it was easier doing activities for Mother’s Day. Father’s Day activities grew to be uncomfortable due to the increasing number of children through the years not having a father in their young lives. Unfortunately, this situation is getting worse. The role of the father continues to depreciate.
