Father’s Day Lament

It’s here again: the one day a year all father’s are supposed to be honored. Yet, how many men are in torment because their own children have thrown them out like a piece of garbage? How many men suffer in silence for all the unfulfilled promises about being adored by their children forever? How many children are selfish, whining, demanding and dismissive to dedicated fathers doing the best they could do? Too many. Too many.

Are there any men out there who can step up to the plate and share how disappointing parenting has been and why? I’m asking for fathers who have done the best they could do and have received nothing in return from their children.

Just as with Mother’s day, Father’s day can be a pronatal nightmere.
