sajuHi, my name is Saju Joseph and I’m a father of 2 sons & the editor of A Father’s Heartbeat.

“A Father’s Heartbeat” is my personal blog where I write and share stories and articles which I want my boys to read when they grow up.

For Parents

Becoming role models for our children

As parents we’ve realized how difficult it is to set ourselves as a role model to our children. To tell them “Follow me” is a huge responsibility we take upon ourselves. The truth is, we can never become the perfect father and mother at anytime as we ourselves are learning each day, but yet we strive to be one, so we can model a lifestyle of living a happy and satisfied life in the face of the hardships and challenges we face each day.

It’s not only children who grow. Parents do too. As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours. I can’t tell my children to reach for the sun. All I can do is reach for it, myself. ~Joyce Maynard
