    Happy Fathers Day to all fathers, especially those that don't see their children as often as they would like.

    Yes Dutchie, those are good thoughts for those Fathers who might be missing their children today.

    Happy Fathers Day to the Daddies of the Forum and Happy Husband's (or Partners) Day to those who are 'in waiting'.

    Re: Fathers Day

    Happy Fathers day to all other dads. In my case my kids are very close to being my best mates, we have a ball together.

    But it is past 9 oclock (in the west) and I havent had me Brekkie in Bed yet!
    They were so much more diligent to these important matters when they were little.

    I used to say to them all I want is a hug and a kiss. Now that they are working I say to them its time to cough up. :p:

    Looking forward to having a laugh with them.

    I will never be a father.

    Should I be sad?

    :confused:

    Re: Fathers Day

    I've just had two kids I've never seen before turn up claiming I'm their father with presents.

    What should I do.

    All my known children are due for lunch.

    Absolutely No. You can be a truly great father without being a biological one.
    There are plenty of people who are in need of a 'father' figure that will give you as much love and respect without being a biological son/daughter. And without adopting too.

    28% of fathers who think they are the biological father, are not.

    It was in the Aussie Post some years ago, so it must be true.

    Sorry, I should have expanded. :eek:

    We have decided not to have children.

    They are; loud, annoying, expensive, smelly, immature (until 30+), life restricting, distracting, a negative effect on your sex life, prevent you from attaining personal goals, a burden.

    Of course, those that have the desire for children, or that have had them, will be able to provide more examples of why we should have kids. :)

    I am sorry, I don't want to take away the brilliance of Fathers Day. I have tried to call my dad 3 times today and he is away from the phone. :(

    Not sure if you are being serious or not GG, but if you are, just enjoy them and let them know they are always welcome. Live and enjoy one day at a time and let tomorrow and any future problems stay there in the future.

    We all see too many unwanted and uncared for children in this world when it is so very sad. I never wanted children either and my husband talked me into it. It was the best thing he ever did my life changed for the better and although we had little money for a long time we had a great life. It's all about quality of life in the end.

    We arrived in this world with nothing and we can take nothing with us but we can enjoy all of our family and friends and care for them genuinely and honestly while we are here. Let's all make the world the better place there are far too many sad things happening in this world.

    You enjoy yourself and your family today.

    Hi Kennas

    I respect your decision not to have children. I am sure you have heard that it is a wonderful feeling and experience to be a father but you obviously have your own beliefs.

    But as you mature in life (and everyone matures from birth to death) you may change your mind.

    Everyone should be thankful that their parents decided to have children. It is a big step and once started there is no return - being a parent is for life.

    Keep trying your Dad and tell him that you appreciate him - I know I didn't enough!

    Cheers

    dutchie

    Wouldn't it also be a better world for children if everyone stopped and thought about what it really meant to bring a child into the world, and if they were truly prepared to do that, and then took full responsibility for raising the child. So every child was wanted, cherished and well parented.
