Every father has a hidden longing to see his children surpass him. To help him achieve this, Ken Canfield offers a three-part plan. First, a dad should examine his own heart. Next, he should take steps to improve the way he connects with his children. Lastly, he should take a longer range view and plan specifically for a lifetime of involved fathering. Friday on Mornings with Eric, Ken Canfield will share how fathers can anticipate and prepare for the changing situations they'll face in their lives so they can encourage and affirm their children as they grow up in this ever-changing world we live in.
