Our Future – Our Children

Recently I revisited a competition that Dads4Kids held some time ago to get ideas about how to progress Dads4Kids. The thoughts and comments that came in showed profound insight and were deeply moving. Lyle Sims, one of the top three winners of the Dads4Kids Competition observed wisely, "Our young people are the future of our… Read More

Editors Note: It is not often I include a guest post on the Justaman blog but Tony Palombi is a great man with a great story and a great family. He shares the pain of growing up in a broken home and the hope within him. Divorce hurts our children. Lets not go there! My… Read More

Ban Divorce

'What Children Want Most is a Ban on Divorce, Says Poll' was a headline in a major UK paper several years ago. The poll question was: "What rules would you make if you ruled the world as King or Queen?" #Ban Divorce was the number one request. Nationwide research of children under 10 years of… Read More

When we were bringing up our boys in the eighties it was in vogue to suggest that boys and girls are trained to be the sex they represent by people’s expectations and gender manipulations.

Dare to Discipline

The title of this week’s Dad4Kids newsletter is taken from Dr James Dobson’s ground breaking book Dare to Dicipline which was published in 1976. I did read parts of the book in the early eighties but I had already formed my opinions on the need for proper boundaries and discipline for children, even before I… Read More

Humble Hope

We racked our brains for weeks without a breakthrough! We knew we had a good story, but we didn’t know what to call it. Getting the name of your child right is important, but so is the name of a high impact life changing documentary. Once you have a name, you are usually stuck with… Read More

War on Our Children

We live in an increasingly bizarre world which is at War with itself, The war has been against women and mothers in particular. The war has shifted over the last several decades to be against men and fathers. Increasingly this war is being waged against our children too as this disturbing War on Our Children… Read More
