From the White House:
In his weekly address, President Obama reflected on Father’s Day and his experience as a parent and discussed the challenges and necessity of being a good father.
The President knows that many Americans who want to be better fathers lack the resources to spend quality time with their children. In response to that, the White House has fostered new partnerships with businesses in an effort to support bonding opportunities for fathers and their families.
While the President recognizes that fatherhood is demanding and often trying, especially during a time of economic struggle and when many Americans are serving our country overseas, he reminds parents that above all, children need unconditional love, whether they succeed or make mistakes; when life is easy and when life is tough. So as President Obama continuously strives to be the best father he can be, he calls on fathers across the country to do the same.
Happy Father’s Day!
