I know that we may anger you, annoy you, pester you, disappoint you, or ignore you, but we all love you very much too. Dad, I do not recall ever being yelled at by you in disappointment or anger, but of course I have been scolded by you thousands of times. I do not recall you ever striking or whipping me so hard that it would leave a burning pain on me, but of course I have been punished by you by kneeling down and raising my arm in a t-formation, causing a tiring pain on my arms. That is what I love about you, dad. You are always considerate of the feelings of your children. Your punishments were always to make us too tired to argue or it was to stop us from arguing with each other. I still remember you forcing Zeng and I to hug each other for a super long time for arguing. I still slightly remember you forcing Juablai and Gaoja to hold hands for a long time after they got into a deep argument. Your punishments were never to hurt us, but to force us to reconnect with one another. You are a dad who loves and cares. No matter the difficulties that you might go through, you still support all of us in our life and education so that we would live a better life than you and mom. That is what I love about you,

    Amber, I don’t have the answer to that question. You said your fatherless friends go the extra mile for their children now. I assume we are around the same age. That is why I said, the problem may have been more devastating/higher a decade or two ago; but we are still seeing the effects of it now (violence, drop-out, and incarceration rates are higher now). Some parents may have realized the negative effects of not having a father in their lives had on them and do not want to perpetuate the lifestyle…
