Addicted to Fathering Children? The Definition of a Feckless Father.
Its so interesting when fatherhood stories like these hit the news: Is this Britain's most feckless father?
People are shocked by stories like this, yet at the same time, many dont think we have a fatherhood crisis in America, or other countries for that matter.
Clearly this guy could have benefited from some of our fatherhood skill-building resources
! Perhaps his view of procreation would have taken a different path and hed be more responsible to bring children into the world that he could actually have the time (and interest for that matter) to be involved with.
Even his mother is sick about his choices. Lorraine Cummings says about her son,
'I love Jamie and I love all of my grandchildren. But enough is enough. It is time for my son to stop fathering babies and start being a father.'
I can only image how difficult it is for this man to actually to be an involved, responsible, committed father. With 13 mothers of his children, hes got quite a harem to attend to. Imagine the drama! And his poor kids being a father is spelled T-I-M-E. And how much of that does this guy really have to give? I mean, hes busy having his 15th baby with his 13th lover.
The article mentions, He [Jaime] often spends Christmas day flitting between each of the women and will sometimes spend his money buying lavish gifts rather than buying food and clothes. Talk about priorities out of order. Does this guy have a care in the world for the children hes fathering?
From birthdays and holidays, to childrens school needs and a desire for their dad to be there to see them play sports, perform in a school play, or be at some other event theyre participating in, Jaime certainly cant be there in a way that matters most to his children: time.
Every child deserves an involved, responsible, and committed father.
What are you doing to prepare young men to make responsible fathering decisions
and equip them with attitudes and skills regarding marriage to the mother of their children
