For a long time now dads have been given a bad rap by the feminised media machine, which has labeled them everything from incompetent to redundant. You see the spiteful denigration of men everywhere often dressed up in inept comedies on the idiot box, the unpalatable offerings Helliwood spews out and the skewed research findings of persons with vested interests and agendas. So it was with some relief that I came across an article written by a female doctor "Dr. Rosie King" concerning the vital role dads play in the upbringing of their children.
Dr. King points out that prior to the industrial revolution fathers played a pivotal role in raising kids. Dads would incorporate their work with educating their children in a much closer knit society than we see today, one whose foundations have been critically undermined by the onset and propagation of feminist postulation's. With the onset of the industrial revolution dads moved away from their families into factories and their influence lessened substantially. Dr King points out that this led to the marginalisation and devaluing of the father role in the family and gave rise to damaging myths about fathering.
Myth #1 MOTHERS ARE NATURALLY MORE CARING PARENTS THAN FATHERS. Not true. The capacity to love and nurture children, says Dr. King, is not solely a female trait. In fact research has found that dads are every bit as sensitive to their baby's signals, and while they may not express that sensitivity in the same way as mum, they are just as competent of meeting their child's needs.
Myth #2 FATHERS ARE BETTER WITH OLDER CHILDREN THAN THEY ARE WITH BABIES. Ah uh! Dr. King says that fathers are just as excited about their newborns and bond with them at the same rate as mums. She says, Research confirms that a dad's hormones change with the birth of his baby. Dr. King goes on to say, Not only are father's equal to mothers when it comes to talking to and kissing their little ones, but it has been found that fathers tend to rock babies and touch them more than mothers do.
And finally Myth #3 (one the
collective media sees determined to ignore) HAVING A LOVING MUM IS ENOUGH. This
is a dangerous delusion. And please, no dispersions on single mums, being
forced to raise children on your own is the hardest job of all - one God NEVER
intended, so it should NEVER be made the acceptable norm. The statistics don't
lie, research from the
So far from being the redundant buffoons the social engineers would have us believe, fathers play a critical and pivotal role in the rearing of children. The Good Book says in Malachi 4:6 that God will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers; or else He will come and strike the land with a curse. The earth is cursed when a father does not occupy his correct and ordained place in the home and the hearts of his children. Little wonder why Satan is trying to usurp that. Time we turned that around eh?
