The Dad Mantra

Nobody said life was going to be fair,
is the mantra of many a Dad;
But that’s no excuse to bully your child
just because your day was bad.

Divorce yourself from the outside world
when you walk into your home;
Your children deserve your attentiveness
untethered from the mobile phone.

Show your children you are interested in them
and that you really care,
This may not be easy, but, after all,
nobody said life was going to be fair.
