After seven days

Leave a comment

Do you remember that lovely old short story with long shelf life: After Twenty Years? I loved reading it over and over in my growing up years. Anyways, what I am writing has a a core question in a key moment  about whether father’s love would/should stop a dad from turning in a son to the cops if daddy has knowledge of a serious crime by the offspring.

Time flies.

It’s one week after Father’s Day – how’s the Fathering going?  Paused writing to read an article I bookmarked not too long ago after hearing a radio news item about it, because fatherhood is a topic that pops up in my writing ever so often. It is from the American Academy of Pediatrics on the enduring importance of fathers. Reminded me of this very powerful Fresh Prince clip with Will Smith and his occasional dad: message to men – even a little fathering goes a long way, from the kid’s point of view.
