Conversations: Involved Dad
June 30, 2019
As your kids grow up, they move onwards with their lives, including moving out of your home. If you are a divorced family, your kids learn to live these two house lifestyle young. My boys, you have had to learn that from an early age.
As a father, who often put his career ahead of his family, who spends an equal number of nights in a year sleeping in a hotel bed versus the warm comfort of one's own bed, missing on some milestones, and making some, I have had to live with this guilt of being a father from a distance at times.
But through these choices, I have always watched over both of you from a distance. Not too far to be deaf to your call, but also not to close to oversee your every step.
Fathers, if you are dealing with your guilt of how 'involved' you are or not in your child's life, remember, they need your guidance, support, and love. Not necessary your presence. Said differently, your presence is not a substitute for guidance, support, and love.
