"African," "Colored," "Negro," "Black," "Afro-American," "African American"…

There are things that every father needs to know and should modify their behaviors when helping to raise their children whether in the home or not. The actions of fathers have serious effects on their children. The relationships of fathers and their children have lifelong effects on both.

A father’s words and actions carry tremendous weight throughout the life a child and shape the relationship behaviors of children into adulthood. Girls need fathers to show them what expectations to have on how they should be treated and respected. What they morally and ethically should expect from boys and men as they mature and why girls and women should have their own and not have to depend on anyone to provide for them.
