About-

There have always been good fathers and bad fathers. But never before in history has the role of fathers been as undefined as it is today. hardly anyone who becomes a father is entering the race with a religious, cultural or educational assignment. This involves many drawbacks. But instead of just deploring this fact, I want committed fathers to recognize and exploit the new opportunities involved in this. Especially the freedom from old role models opens up completely new possibilities for fathers to take on an hugely positive task for the development of their children and to cultivate a stable relationship with the mother, which lives from the difference of the sexes.
