Fathers advised to live lifes worthy of emulating

Mrs Stella Agyenim-Boateng, a Human Resource Consultant, has urged fathers to live exemplary lives worthy of emulation by the youth in order to leave behind a generation that could better the lot of society.


She said if fathers failed in their responsibilities to the family the children were likely to be wayward as they would be forced to look for other means to satisfy their needs.

Mrs Agyenim-Boateng made the call at the launch of Emmanuel Paul Nimfah-Wilkinson (EMPAUL) Foundation in Accra.

The foundation is to offer support to fathers and organise seminars and workshops for them to enable them to take proper care of their children and families.

Mrs Agyenim-Boateng said the moral decadence and social vices that the society was bedeviled with could be linked to men who had failed to play their fatherly roles and responsibilities.

“This is because children do not have the opportunity to imbibe good values from their fathers,’ she said.

Mrs Agyenim Boateng said real men were those who took good care of the family and taught their children the values and the norms of society such that they would not deviate from those values.

She said education was one of the best legacies responsible fathers could bequeath their children to ensure their welfare in future.

“It is important for men to be truthful and transparent to their wives in all aspects of life so as to earn the trust of the family which is the ideal way to consolidate family bonds and solidarity,” Mrs Agyenim-Boateng said.

She commended Mr Nimfah-Wilkinson for establishing the foundation to support fathers in their endeavours and urged fathers to take advantage of it to upgrade their knowledge.

Mr Nimfah-Wilkinson, President of the foundation, said it was a divine duty for fathers to be the God symbol for the family by providing physical protection and support for all members.

He urged Christians to uphold religious values such as love, trustworthiness and honesty because those were in tune with God’s Commandment.
