Every day, I will post on Facebook, Instagram, and leave a comment on someone's video, on YouTube, talking about fatherlessness. These videos are everywhere but we are still seeing the devastation of being fatherless everywhere. Why isn’t this helping this cause?
The only thing I can say is that we as a society are in denial or we just don’t know what we can do to help. Hopefully, by the end of this blog post, you will have some idea of what you can do to make some type of difference.
What it is?
What is it that is keeping us stuck from making changes to help this epidemic that is affecting all of us world-wide. When I look at the news and see all of this devastation I say to myself, if a respectful father was there in that situation could that have made a difference and my answer back to myself is always, YES! You see fathers will give balance to a child that the mother can’t give by herself. This is not knocking the mother just being real.
How it affects us all
I often wonder if a person who is in a loving, caring relationship knows that fatherlessness is affecting them too. People with caring and loving households do have their homes broken into and most likely it is done by someone who didn’t have a father or had a negative father influence.
Have you ever wondered why your children are being bullied and by who? Most children who grow up with a loving, caring father do not create bullies. I’m sure it could happen but more often than not bullies come from people who have low self-esteem and a lot of these people didn’t have a dad in their lives.
Why are there no real solutions?
I think the main reason for this is because we are in denial. Like I said earlier I post fatherless inspirational posts on Instagram and Facebook daily and I get very little response in making people’s lives better as a result of being fatherless. Another reason I think there is little interaction about fatherlessness is that this is the elephant in the room that no one wants to talk about. Because we are going to open “Pandora’s Box” and no one wants to go there. This is so sad. It really is!
Where can we start to turn this around?
I believe we can start turning this around by letting everyone know about this problem. Like the politicians, who have the ability to change some of these laws. Something that definitely needs to be looked at is the paternity fraud situation. If we can just do something to change the way this is being done now this would help a lot. We need children to know who their biological father is and this should be done at birth. If we can put a man on the moon, then we can put a man in a child’s life.
What I’m doing to help turn this around
The first thing I’ve done is created this platform so the fatherless can get the help they need with the struggles they are going through. There is no other place on the planet where a fatherless person can go to and get help for being fatherless. This has been a slow process because, as I said before, fatherless people are in denial.
They don’t want to face the ills of their anger, or the depression, or their parenting skills. All of which they can get help with here at The Fatherless Store. Also, buy any product there and show the world what you accomplished despite being fatherless.
Second, I am currently writing a book about my struggles of being a fatherless and how we can start changing to make a difference. This is a book like no other book ever written
Lastly, I have created other websites that are an extension of The Fatherless Store, they are
-afatherlesschildcries.com: is a blog I create a few years ago before The Fatherless Store was created. There are some good nuggets there but a lot of those blog posts are here now.
-helpforthefatherless.com: is a landing page that gives away my top 7 things Good Daddies do for free.
-questionsfromthefatherless.com: this is a website for any fatherless person who wants to ask a fatherless question in a secure area.
-fathersconqueringanger.com: this is a website that caters to fatherless fathers over 40. This is where you can get an e-book I produced to help these men who are still struggling with their anger.
-answersforthefatherless.com: this is a website where you can buy a shortened version of the book I’m working on now. It would be better to just wait for the longer version book as the book on this website does not have my personal story on it.
Thank you for reading my blogs. I hope you will help me with this journey of helping the fatherless.
Please leave a comment on what you plan to do to help out.
