Being a father that God wants me to be to my children.

Fatherhood

Ephesians 6:4 (NKJV)

And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.


Psalm 103:13 (NKJV)

As a father pities his children,
So the Lord pities those who fear Him.

Being a father of four girls is a challenge. It's even more challenging when I as a deaf person is a father to four hearing girls. I do get frustrated when I can't hear them and it does make them feel disappointed and sad when they want me to be able to hear. My oldest daughter sometimes blames herself for me being deaf. I would always let her know that it's never her fault and that I love her.

I am proud of them. They are learning so much sign language that sometime I would forget that they are hearing. My wife and I are both deaf and would love to be able to hear. We feel sometimes that because of our deafness, it's a burden for them to carry. They feel as they are our ears to where they would do their best to interpret through sign language almost everywhere we go. I as a father don't want them to take care of us. I want them to enjoy their childhood as normal as possible and let them be full of joy and laughter.

This is what I think father should follow:

Faith in Christ. God provides us wisdom, strength, and helps us have an understanding heart to be a father will help us reduce our stress. It's important to be a calm and loving father to our child(ren).

Always show love and compassion to your child(ren).

Trust in the Lord and believe that the Holy Spirit is there for you 24/7 when we need Him. God knows what we need as fathers. When we ask God what we need, He'll provide!

Help your children when they need help. God gave us children to enjoy them and help them grow in Christ.

Ease up the anger and give it to God. When frustrated, cast all feelings to Him. He's there for us.

Remember, our children are there to be loved, trained in the way of the Lord, and blessed.

      Four daughters are a lot to cope with for hearing parents, but it appears that you and your wife are doing wonderfully well with your little blessings. May God bless you both as you bring them up to know and love Him.

      God has put all of us where He wants us. For some reason, he has given your girls deaf parents. He knew that they would be able to handle the challenges and that the challenges will make them better people.

      Sounds like you are trying to do as the Bible says, "Train up your children in His ways and they will not depart from it". It is hard, but it is a great promise!

      Great hub for fathers and mothers!!!
