Caught this tender moment between father and son one evening…

A good father is one who does not feel afraid to show his tender side to his son. Sons, not just daughters, often need that physical show of love and tenderness from their fathers, to give them the assurance that they are loved and treasured by their dads. How can a boy learn about strength and tenderness? I think the best way to learn is from his father.

    K’s dad is a big softie that is very generous with his hugs for the little guy. Prob explains why K is so affectionate as well.

  4. There’s just something about daddy-child moments that is so captivating. But the simple photo says so much. Normally it is the mums who are seen as the gentle and tender parent. But It’s true that a father can make a huge impact by demonstrating that a man can show his tender side as well.

    Yeah, I think it is so important that a man cannot neglect his tender side, and demonstrate that trait to his children especially.

  5. Amazing how we both found inspiration in the men of our lives this week! :) I can’t agree more on your point about learning strength and tenderness from a father.
