Little Anthony’s dad is a man of few words. When Anthony asks him about his job, Anthony’s dad answers that his work is counseling children in school, but his real job is to teach Anthony how to be a man. As Anthony grows older, this message stays with him. He often wonders when his training will begin.
It’s not until he’s much older that Anthony becomes aware that his dad is teaching him how to be a man every day through his actions. As his father demonstrates daily how a man takes care of his family, Anthony learns how to do the same. My Dad’s Job shares a powerful message about the value of parenting with love, direction, purpose, modeling, and consistency.
