    Hello Shawn, these are all wonderful quotes. Fathers are very special human beings. Fatherhood will give you some of the greatest challenges — and the greatest opportunities — you will ever face. Along with the pleasure your children can bring, you’ll encounter new demands and situations that will help you to change and grow as a person.

    Good fathers are the foundation of families, they give them identity and meaning in both life and in death. Parenting gives you an unparalleled chance to develop new skills and capabilities. From generosity to patience, from sensitivity to communication — the lessons that you learn can help you feel happier and more fulfilled at home, on the job, in your marriage, and as a person.

    Fatherhood brings responsibility, understanding the importance of clear communication within the family, learning how to discipline without anger, and learning how to really value and enjoy the time you spend with your children. Fatherhood can be the experience of a lifetime.

    Hope you have a wonderful day!
