My Granddaughter Calls Me Father and Other Times Grandfather
Every child needs both a father and a mother in their life. We are supposed to be nurtured in a family but these days there is much confusion in the world as far as parenting is concerned. My granddaughter needs a father figure in her life, yet she has not been lucky to see one. All she knows is her grandfather, who is me.
Young men of today often fail to take responsibility for their children. And so when my granddaughter was born, the father whom I did not know showed a clean pair of heels. My daughter was to attend college, and so the responsibility of taking care of this sweet little angel fell to me. At times she gets so confused as to whether she should call me dad or grandpa. She then uses both. This is not an uncommon case with parenting today. She is confused about her parents, as many children in the world are.
Men Should Be Serious in Their Relationships
You cannot have your cake and eat it too. When a man enters into a relationship with a lady, he should know what might well come out of it. Unless you behave like nuns or monks, then children will result from a romantic relationship. It is your responsibility to care for the child. Make sure you take charge. Know that the child needs food, clothing, education and shelter. Provide for all the child’s needs to avoid confusing them. Do not subject your offspring to the madness I see in the world. Be the father you want to be. If you are ready to be a lover, then be prepared to be a parent too. Take the responsibilities of parenting seriously.
Ladies Should Be Responsible Too
It is my wish that all young girls should be careful with men they allow to go all the way with. They ought to know that children may arise. If they do:
• Are those men responsible? Maybe the men are confused, as the others in the world. They are not responsible at all. They may be the ones to abandon you and your child.
• Do those men love? Very many ladies mistake a man’s lust for love. When you fall in their traps then you are finished.
• What is their background? Do those men come from families which are cheats? Avoid them.
• The best method is to have a man who is patient. You too should wait till you tie the knot. After all, life does not end today.
• Test and try that man. Is he ready for you and kids if they happen to come?
Children need care and love. Parenting should always be taken seriously. Young men and women who are not ready to take on the responsibilities of being a parent should take the necessary precautions to avoid an unplanned pregnancy. Do not subject children to the madness of the world.
