Happy Father’s Day, dads! You earned it—whether it’s a paycheck or the payoff of having your kid do well in school, sports, or (if they’re grown) in life. When it comes to a child’s self-esteem, acceptance, and relationships, you are the most influential factor.
You’re the support system and the backup (especially for moms). You help bathe the kids, put the baby to sleep when Mom’s out of options, and preoccupy the kids when she needs a break. Heroism.
