After he died, I found this wrinkled brown newsprint tucked in the back of his leather wallet. I put it in a tiny frame on a narrow wall in my home.

All the crap our husbands do that make us want to tear our hair out could actually be helping to balance out the crap we do that makes our kids want to tear their hair out. Our husbands are different than us.

Promises to My Husband

To thank you for all you do is not enough. Trying to express my feeling in a sappy card just won't cut it. Buying you a "World's Best Dad" mug just seemed a little cliche.

Sometimes it can be a thing as little as a jar of peanuts -- with its faint but distinct smell just strong enough to evoke memories in my father's lap...

One more thing: Relationships themselves can be transformed. No matter what the nature of our human relationships, we are transformed across generations, across the miles, around the world, connected in order to love and support one another on Father's Day and every week of the year in times of health or sickness.

As fathers, it is our duty to explain even the most difficult issues to our children. This Father's Day, let's focus on HIV.

You Don't Need A 'Real' Dad To Celebrate Father's Day

Susannah Keogh | Posted 06.21.2016 | Teen
Susannah Keogh

I mean, I get it, I really do. Father's Day is commercialized and these companies aim to maximize on that. In the midst of all the greeting cards and emails though, we shouldn't forget that Father's Day isn't a preserve of an elite group of people who "have" a father.

A Thank You To My Dad For Being My Father -- And Mother

My father is strong -- way stronger than I ever thought. When he is sick, he still continues to drive me to the train station so I can get to work on time. When my mother is brought up, he keeps his composure even when he is hurting.

What I Should Have Asked My Father Before He Died

Mary Novaria

This is my fifteenth Father's Day without my dad. He died of heart failure, a couple of months shy of his 79th birthday. He took his last breath quite peacefully while I sat by his bedside. He was gone. And so was a family history I'd neglected to plumb.

A Tribute to a Father

Dr. Jane Aronson

I wish that I had listened to my father more. I wish I let things that hurt roll off my back more and trusted that being natural and myself was safe. He advised me to pursue so many goals for myself and I didn't listen because I did not believe in myself. He wanted me to trust myself and I fought him on this.

Fathers Are Not Mothers To Their Daughters

Dr. Peggy Drexler | Posted 06.20.2016 | Parents
Dr. Peggy Drexler

No matter how much their fathers may have disappointed or hurt them, all the women I met felt a measure of loyalty and gratitude to them. Fathers matter a great deal not only in childhood but well into adulthood -- and yet few women are truly aware of the ways in which their fathers impact them.

I'd like to say it was at a younger age when I really appreciated my father. But sadly, it really didn't occur until college. Because that's when I found out how much he means to me.

Nobody should forget that paid leave is a family issue -- not just a women's issue. Men, like women, want to be good parents and good caregivers for their families. Yet the vast majority of men don't have access to supportive workplace policies that would enable them to do so.

What I learnt from my father was to share with others whatever you are enjoying in your own life. If we are enjoying prosperity, share some of that with those who don't have enough.

'Jean Louise, Stand Up, Your Father's Passing'

I was very lucky to have a father who I could put into a similar class of man as Atticus Finch. Unfailingly kind, unfailingly fair, unfailingly respectable, unfailingly loving. Most of my friends have fathers who either fall or fell into a similar class of man...and we are lucky children.

He can't quite convey to others just how much his entire world changed the day he held his first daughter in his arms. And no, he will not even let me into that part of his heart as he crumbles when our baby reaches out to him, holding on so tightly, never wanting to let go.

Fatherlessness is a plague on all our houses but there's some surprisingly good news. Any child can have a good dad, and all the developmental benefits that come along with one. Building better fathers is the low-hanging fruit of community restoration.

I've never felt my skin color or racial background preclude me from being able to report on the black community. Issues facing the African-American community are American issues, just like any other issues. They affect us all.
