Core Values

Can I start by giving ‘core values’ some definition:

Guiding principles that keep us on, what we historically referred to as, the straight and narrow.

They were defined, and I say, “were”, as I am sure many have been lost, altered, or redefined in the past 50 years.

They have existed in many places, organisations, work places, education, professional societies, to name a few.

It would be interesting to see comments on what you see as an impact on men or fathers, or their social relationships, arising ftom the loss of any core value or values.

You may not be able to relate to specific core values but have been left in a situation which you instinctively know is wrong and shouldn’t have happened. If you tell the story others might offer suggestions of what core values are involved, or absent.
