Aspirations for Fatherhood

May I give my gain to my family and take in their sufferings.

May I protect them for harm despite the cost to my health and happiness.

May I lead them towards the Dhamma by my example and never by coercion.

May I accept them unconditionally for whoever they choose to be in the moment.
