WHAT SORT ARE YOU?
"What sort of a father are you?
This question appears on all the
pamphlets of the "Fathers' Club of
the United States," organized a year
ago and now having ten branch
It's a mighty important question,
too. One of the most important
things in this life Is to be a father,
which carries with it the obligation
to be the right kind of a father.
In the past the rearing of children
has been, supposedly at least, left
pretty much to mothers, but, really,
father ought to always carry a least
half of the burden, and, if mother is
going oft into other "spheres," as
some folks claim, the question as to
what sort of a father father is will be
come a hotter and hotter one.
If mother becomes more independ
ent of father, more acceptably his
equal, the chances are that the chil
dren will follow her suit and father
will have to become more the com
panion and sympathizer and less the
boss and the more or less dreaded
head of the family.
Children are the most important
things on earth because they repre
sent unequalled possibilities. It is a
wise father who knows his children's
father and it is a good plan for every
father to often let all else go and
systematically put himself under
cross-examination as to "Whatsort
of a father am I?" We say cross
examination because he'll, very like
ly, be almighty cross before he has
put to himself many interrogatories
if he's an honest father.
