Nollywood veteran actor and stylish father, Richard Mofe Damijo, celebrated Father’s Day yesterday with a beautiful message.
According to the actor, he has worked hard to have a good relationship with his children, part of which is following the trends with them but trying not to loose his values while trying to come to their level, hence he advises other fathers who strive to be better fathers to continue in their quest and God will give them strength to be more and do more.
Read his message below;
- When I was younger, I looked at my dad as very old and now, In a changing world when 70 (years old) is the new 40, I wonder how my kids look at me-lol-. I am grateful I can relate better with my children, have conversations rather than just give orders/instructions, have them run up to me when I get home rather than run off into their rooms.
I have resolved to evolve with them, watch trends closely and keep finding ways to keep up with them without losing the values I hold dear and want to impart in them.
To every father providing not just financially but also providing the love, acceptance, emotional and spiritual stability their children need. To every father looking for ways to win or retain the confidence of their children in a changing world. To every father striving at being a better dad than our fathers were. To every father who has resolved to raise their kids better than our parents did, I say Happy Father’s Day and I pray for you today that God will furnish you exceedingly and abundantly with all the wisdom and resources you require to be the father your family needs. God bless you all.
