  1. Thanks Andrew – great stuff – this is fantastically referenced and really focuses on this crucial area of fathering. I’m not a father, although have had a longing to be one since I was 40 or so, now 48 – gr8 that this has an educative focus and gets down to the roots of what’s being taught in schools and homes – on one level, doesn’t it boil down to values, and sex being treated as a commodity that happens too early without guidance or understanding, and not as something that is a sacred act?
