Fatherless sons (and daughters)
My mother, sadly was a woman of her era, and ingrained with subservience to the man of the house. Her overriding belief was that woman is a home-maker and man is the provider. My mother did work for some of her life but it was borne out of sheer financial desperation and any high self-esteem she possessed was eroded by the rantings of my father. Nevertheless, my mother was and is a cheerful soul due to her undying Christian faith and that, I believe, was our saving grace. If grace has an amazing power then I have been witness to it in my mother’s forbearance.
Self esteem classes would be helpful for father and child and it needs implementing soon before more children turn into adults of the lost generation. Fathers need to be told how to think, talk and behave around little children, especially their own.

Perhaps it is an uncommon sense to not experience a father’s love on earth or is it an uncommon spiritual experiment to have a dysfunctional one? Wisdomona is challenged (and scared) by this particular truth less ordinary.
Oprah’s campaign will raise awareness (and I support that) but the answer to the issue of why children lack fathers is still blowing in the wind.
