Fathers are essential for a child’s healthy development. Psychology explained ‘Fatherhood turns out to be a complex and unique phenomenon with huge consequences for the emotional and intellectual growth of children. Within the past several decades, though, scientists are realizing just how much dads matter. Just like women, fathers’ bodies respond to parenthood, and their parenting style affects their kids just as much, and sometimes more, than mom’s.
“We’re now finding that not only are fathers influential, sometimes they have more influence on kids’ development than moms,” said Ronald Rohner, the director of the Center for the Study of Interpersonal Acceptance and Rejection at the University of ConnectThe sad side of the story that impact fatherhood badly is that society wants fathers to be committed first and foremost to their careers. Co-workers and even bosses might think it’s great that a man has children and a loving family. It might even be seen as a source of strength and stability. But he is not expected to put the children and wife above his job. The job comes first, and whatever is left over, he is free to do as he wishes. So there are times when dads are not able to give time to the family because of the responsibility of earning and feeding to the family. The time house wives give to the family is just because the fathers are working on the back end to support the family and provide all the necessities.
The relationship of father with a child is way different than the one of the mother. The way fathers interact and play with the child impact the personality of the child. Fathers provide a strong shelter of love and support to the child. From leading fishing, the first bicycle ride, tough mathematics problems all have a direct connection with fatherhood.
Children are open and impressive towards mothers, but most of the children are not much impressive with their dad and same goes to the dads. Although fathers are a bit tough from outside, but they also want love and care from the child. Father’s day is one of a great event to express your love and care towards your father. And gifting for father’s day is a loving gesture to say thank you to your father for all his efforts. Father’s day fruit baskets, cakes, flowers, personalized gift are few out of many options to delight your dad. No matter how you choose to wish your dad. The thing that matters is to show sincere love, care and affection.
A father’s love is sweet. To a child it is another “sweet flavor” of human expression that makes life sweeter and more enjoyable. So spend as much time with your father as possible.
