My sister posted this video the other day. It was so on target that I had to see if there were anymore. And there were. They're delightful so I'm sharing.

"More than 79% of Americans feel "the most significant family or social problem facing America is the physical absence of the father from the home." Research shows that the lack of a father in the home correlates closely with crime, educational and emotional problems, teenage pregnancy, and drug and alcohol abuse.
In an effort to show dads the critical role they play in their children's lives, the Ad Council has partnered with the National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse and volunteer ad agency Campbell-Ewald to create a new PSA campaign that communicates to fathers that their presence is essential to their children's well-being. The campaign provides fathers with the information they need to become better dads."

The Boyfriend has been the best father I could wish for, for my children. He's been invested in our family since the word... yes. That's never been a question in my mind or the minds of my children. He is essential to their well-being. And mine. I would have great difficulty parenting without him.
With all of his wonderfulness, I can't see him doing some of those things in the videos - manicure, cheering, double dutch - but that's part of the message. As a father, do what you do. Your way. Your style. The father of my children does things his way. Like starting a pig farm, shooting guns, or building a boat. Some of his way makes me crazy! Like the pig incident. But, that's only from my view. My son thinks differently. And that's the point. So, do something, "Take Time to be a Dad Today".
