A Wake Up Call for Filipino Men

Pinoy Daddy Blogger & son
‎America leads the industrialized world in fatherlessness. Forty percent of all children in America are born to single mothers; that rate is 50% for mothers under 30, and 70% for African-Americans. While moms are great at giving unconditional love regardless of their child’s performance, dads motivate sons to try harder, not to give up, to work for success. But even for those with dads, the average school-age boy in America spends half an hour a week in one-to-one conversation with his father. Compare that with an average of 44 hours a week spent in front of a television or computer screen.

This is a wake up call to Filipino fathers too. Filipino men need to learn from the demise of American fathers and prepare themselves spiritually and emotionally to pursue legitimate pleasures with their mate and children.

Who else is best to lead culture to the right way, but the church?
