Pat Neely of “Down Home with Neelys”  shares his wishes for young fathers

As I approach Father’s Day and as I become older and become an empty nester, I have three wishes for young fathers or fathers that are in the prime of raising their kids and one wish is that even though a lot of the fathers now make big emphasis (or big emphasis is being put on) being a provider — they must understand balance. You must have balance when you are a father and a provider and what I mean by balance is that you take time out of your schedule to spend with your children.

My second wish would be that, and I always wish this for my children, is that I can provide a better opportunity for my children than I had. To me, that is how we further our generations, each generation should get better so my second wish is that we strive to provide a better opportunity for your children and not necessarily meaning from a materialistic standpoint; it may mean from just simply exposing them to a different environment, exposing them to different foods, exposing them to a different language, and/or providing a better opportunity for your children than you had.
