Are you a good father?
"Are you a good father?"
This is a question I don't think I can answer.
The Talmud says "...even if the whole world judging you by your actions tells you that you are righteous, regard yourself as wicked.’" (Niddah 30b). If I applied this teaching to parenting I would be presumptuous and arrogant to say with certainty that "I am a good father" and "My kids are going to turn out to be great kids".
I have two young kids. How do I know how they will turn out?
I try to give my kids lots of attention and love. I daven for them every day.
Am I perfect? No.
Am I a good father?
Only time will tell.
