Father's Day

Father's Day

Its Father’s Day. I’m sitting on my porch drinking a cup of coffee from a mug made by my 9 year old daughter that says “Best Dad.” I find the irony of this amusing and sad. There a quiet truth hidden behind the stoic fathers I know. As a man, you are taught to “man up and stop being a wuss” and know what you’re doing. The outcome of this kind of message is to shut down and become the trope of an emotionally unavailable father who works long hours to pay the bills to provide but mentally, emotionally absent and disconnected.
