… you should not expect him to spell it out.

He will not hesitate to confront you.
He will be loving but firm, strict when necessary, fair and comprehensive as much as possible.
He will talk to you, man to man, father to son,
expressing a wealth of feelings, without saying much.
All of this because he loves you.

    Love the dynamic and tension created between father and son! It’s tough for guys isn’t it? They just don’t talk their emotions but it is there buried!

  • And to think that they have such a great relationship! LOL! This shot is a blatant lie, let me tell you!
