A child’s first teacher is their parents. For a child to grow into a healthy, happy person they need both individuals, mom and dad; guiding them, instructing them. Children need their fathers to take an active role in raising them. The role consists of more than setting the rules and dispensing discipline. They should get involved in every facet of their child’s life, provide an exemplary model, and they should look for and act on teachable moments.
God makes it clear in the Bible that fathers need to be teachers for their children. To be a Christian father means instructing children about God’s love while teaching them how to live their Christian faith; using the Bible to support the words and actions.
