Hi, everybody. Sunday is Father’s Day. If you haven’t got Dad a gift yet, there’s still time. Just barely. But the truth is, what we give our fathers can never match what our fathers give us.


I know how important it is to have a dad in your life, because I grew up without my father around. I felt the weight of his absence. So for Michelle and our girls, I try every day to be the husband and father my family didn’t have when I was young. And every chance I get, I encourage fathers to get more involved in their children’s lives, because what makes you a man isn’t the ability to have a child – it’s the courage to raise one.


Still, over the past couple years, I’ve met with a lot of young people who don’t have a father figure around. And while there’s nothing that can replace a parent, any of us can do our part to be a mentor, a sounding board, a role model for a kid who needs one. Earlier this year, I launched an initiative called My Brother’s Keeper – an all-hands-on-deck effort to help more of our young men reach their full potential. And if you want to be a mentor to a young man in your community, you can find out how at WhiteHouse.gov/MyBrothersKeeper.


Now, when I launched this initiative, I said that government can’t play the primary role in a young person’s life. Taking responsibility for being a great parent or mentor is a choice that we, as individuals, have to make. No government program can ever take the place of a parent’s love. Still, as a country, there are ways we can help support dads and moms who make that choice.


That’s why, earlier this week, we brought working dads from across America to the White House to talk about the challenges they face. And in a few weeks, I’ll hold the first-ever White House Working Families Summit. We’ve still got too many workplace policies that belong in the 1950s, and it’s time to bring them up to date for today’s families, where oftentimes, both parents are working. Moms and dads deserve affordable child care, and time off to care for a sick parent or child without running into hardship. Women deserve equal pay for equal work – and at a time when more women are breadwinners for a family, that benefits men, too. And because no parent who works full-time should have to raise a family in poverty, it’s time for Congress to follow the lead of state after state, get on the bandwagon, and give America a raise.


Dads work hard. So our country should do what we can to make sure their hard work pays off; to make sure life for them and their families is a little less stressful, and a little more secure, so they can be the dads their kids need them to be. Because there’s nothing more precious in life than the time we spend with our children. There’s no better feeling than knowing that we can be there for them, and provide for them, and help give them every shot at success.


Let’s make sure every dad who works hard and takes responsibility has the chance to know that feeling, not just on one Sunday, but every day of the year.


Thanks everybody, happy Father’s Day, and have a great weekend.




Hi, everybody. This Sunday is Father’s Day, and so I wanted to take a moment  to talk about the most important job many of us will ever have and that’s being  a dad.


Today we’re blessed to live in a world where technology allows us to connect  instantly with just about anyone on the planet. But no matter how advanced we  get, there will never be a substitute for the love and support and, most  importantly, the presence of a parent in a child’s life. And in many ways,  that’s uniquely true for fathers.


I never really knew my own father. I was raised by a single mom and two  wonderful grandparents who made incredible sacrifices for me. And there are  single parents all across the country who do a heroic job raising terrific kids.  But I still wish I had a dad who was not only around, but involved; another role  model to teach me what my mom did her best to instill – values like hard work  and integrity; responsibility and delayed gratification – all the things that  give a child the foundation to envision a brighter future for themselves.


That’ s why I try every day to be for Michelle and my girls what my father  was not for my mother and me. And I’ve met plenty of other people – dads and  uncles and men without a family connection –who are trying to break the cycle  and give more of our young people a strong male role model.


Being a good parent – whether you’re gay or straight; a foster parent or a  grandparent – isn’t easy. It demands your constant attention, frequent  sacrifice, and a healthy dose of patience. And nobody’s perfect. To this day,  I’m still figuring out how to be a better husband to my wife and father to my  kids.


And I want to do what I can as President to encourage marriage and strong  families. We should reform our child support laws to get more men working and  engaged with their children. And my Administration will continue to work with  the faith and other community organizations, as well as businesses, on a  campaign to encourage strong parenting and fatherhood.


Because if there’s one thing I’ve learned along the way, it’s that all our  personal successes shine a little less brightly if we fail at family. That’s  what matters most. When I look back on my life, I won’t be thinking about any  particular legislation I passed or policy I promoted. I’ll be thinking about  Michelle, and the journey we’ve been on together. I’ll be thinking about Sasha’s  dance recitals and Malia’s tennis matches –about the conversations we’ve had and  the quiet moments we’ve shared. I’ll be thinking about whether I did right by  them, and whether they knew, every day, just how much they were loved.


That’s what I think being a father is all about. And if we can do our best to  be a source of comfort and encouragement to our kids; if we can show them  unconditional love and help them grow into the people they were meant to be;  then we will have succeeded.


Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there, and have a great weekend.
















Today, this day reminds us that we depend on to create the cornerstone of life, the most important thing is family. We must recognize, and certainly the cornerstone of every father to play a key role. His father, patience, and coaching, both direction, and words and deeds. Father is a successful example, but also continue to promote the success of our people.

But if we open and injustice, will not admit too many fathers in their place……too many children's lives where, in too many families, the father of this role is missing. The expense of their home responsibilities, acting like the little boy, not man. The basis of our many family and therefore become weak.

In speaking these words, I knew that I am not a perfect father ——I know I made mistakes, but the future will make mistakes; I hope to have more time than it is now at home, accompanied by his wife and children, but can not do. All I know, but still have to say this. Because even though we are not perfect, even though we face the difficulties, but still there are some lessons we must strive to experience as a father, to sum up the……whether we are black or white, rich or the poor, from poor South or from wealthy suburbs.

The first lesson is that we must make to their children an excellent example ——because if we have high expectations for them, we too, should aim high. You have a job is a good thing, there is a college diploma is good enough. If you are getting married, children around the knee, that could not be better, but not the entire weekend at home watching ESPN Sports "sports center." Many children is under the influence of this growing up near the TV. As a father, as parents, we should spend more time with their children and help them complete their studies, from time to time their TV remote control into the hands of the game or a book. This is the way we lay the cornerstone of the family.

We understand that education is the key to creating children's future. We understand that in order to obtain good jobs, they compete with children around the world. We appreciate the hard work required for this purpose, learning and should reach the level of education. To truly compete, they need to graduate high school, then college, and perhaps have to take a postgraduate diploma. We shook their hands, that they moved his ass in the library's seat now!

Bring this idea of excellence instilled into the child's mind, it rely on us as fathers and parents. We have a responsibility to tell our daughters, do not let your own values affect the image of being on television, because I expect you to dream without limit, expect you to pursue those dreams. We have a responsibility to tell our son, although the radio songs glorified violence, but in my house, we celebrate achievements, self-esteem and hard work. We have the responsibility to these expectations, it means that we ourselves must also meet these expectations, we have to do in life, a remarkable example.

The second experience was as a father, we should identify with the values passed to the child. Not sympathy, but empathy ——to put themselves for the sake of others, see the world from the perspective of others. Sometimes we are so easily obsessed with the "we" word, should forget our obligations to each other. Our society has a cultural concept, keep in mind that these obligations is a sign of weakness ——we should not look weak, so we should not be people that care.

However, our young children or children ——girls will observe this. They will see you ignore his wife punched and kicked, they will observe your selfish, so  at school or in the street to see the same behavior behavior is not surprising. This requires that we must lead by example, to have empathy with people and pass to our children. We need to set an example to the children, tell them stronger than other people down, but to help others up. This is why we should take responsibility as a father.

We should take these practices to our children a solid foundation. But we should also understand that even if we did, even if we do as fathers and parents to the obligations, even if our government has fulfilled its duties, we will encounter in life are still many difficult challenges. We will still be struggling with the painful days, rain will still be hit.

Therefore, we concluded as a father should be the last experience, we can give children is the most precious gift is hope.

We hope not words of hope, not the kind of blind optimism, or is the problem faced by the willful neglect. I say hope is the kind of misery in the inner spirit ——Even if all the signs are not optimistic that this spirit we believe a better future waiting for us, as long as willing to work for the the struggle. As long as we have this conviction.

We try, we hope, we try to put our house in the most solid foundation to build on. When the wind blows, when the rain when the storm hit our house, we firmly believe that God will guide us, watching us, protect us, to lead his children through the darkest of the hurricane, to a bright bright future. This is Father's Day today, this day I do pray for everyone, which I hold the future of the country's hope.
