As dads, one of our biggest responsibilities is raising well-rounded, informed, intelligent and empathetic children. I try to take that very seriously, but also know the harder you try to teach your child, sometimes the less receptive they are to learning those lessons.
That’s what prompted me to start the “Dear Son” series of posts here on Dadtography. I hope these lessons will some day sink in for my son. I know that right now, many of these lessons won’t mean much to them, but as they grow and grow up, I think they’ll come to appreciate the insight and wisdom that a father can provide his children.
