My top 10 Fears of a Father – What are yours?

Submitted 30-09-2010

My friend Donny Claxton over at DaddyClaxton.com is working on project to understand the major fears of dads. Without giving it a lot of analysis, I wrote down my top ten. What are yours?

1 that there will be an accident that I could not have prevented

2 that there will be an accident that I could have prevented

3 puberty

4 life without them in the house

5 major life challenges for them I can not solve for them (failure to get into a good school, get a job, etc)

6 unexpected illness

7 serious romantic relationships I think are wrong for them

8 late nights out with the car

9 teen years rejection of parents

10 the day they no longer hold my hand when crossing the street.

And that’s without the money fears. Strangely, terrorist attack wasn’t anywhere on the list.
