Fathers are requested to do this, that, and the next thing. Their children need them to be and do a host of things to develop into responsible citizens. Their wives need them to do and be another host of things. But I wonder how much thought goes into considering what fathers need? Dads have needs, too!
We humans tend to be most loving and nurturing to others when our needs are met. We just cannot give what we don’t have. If our psycho-emotional tank is topped up, then we can give.
