Celebrate the unsung hero in life called Father

Saturday, June 16, 2012


“A dad is someone who
wants to catch you before you fall
but instead picks you up,
brushes you off,
and lets you try again.

A dad is someone who
wants to keep you from making mistakes
but instead lets you find your own way,
even though his heart breaks in silence
when you get hurt.

A dad is someone who
holds you when you cry,
scolds you when you break the rules,
shines with pride when you succeed,
and has faith in you even when you fail…”

Without any debate, fathers are the unsung heroes in life. A child belongs to both the parents, but on safer side, mothers get much more attention for the upbringing of a child, when compared with fathers. However, the role of the father in the family has never lost its importance, no matter what the trends in society are. For the proper upbringing process to effect, a child rates on the importance of the father-child relationship just the same level as has the importance of the mother-child relationship. Mothers will be always mothers, but the importance of a child having a present and engaged father in his or her life can’t be underestimated by any means. By now, this is already an established fact that the affects of a father’s love on the development of a child are often understudied and underestimated. In matters of substance abuse, depression, behavior problems and psychological maladjustment, the love a father plays a more significant role than that of the mother. Furthermore, these difficulties in life can be more easily avoided if the presence of a strong and nurturing father figure is evident in a young child’s life. It has long been known that parents can make a defining difference in the future of their child. And there is often argument about whether a dual parent household produces better offspring than a single parent household does, but new studies are focusing on fatherhood as a cornerstone of child development. Fatherhood is about unconditional love, sacrifice, strength, and dependability. Fathers don't always have it very easy, as they work, teach, and watch the members of their family grow up. And the celebration of Father’s Day is one small tribute to the man who held the things together, yet remained behind the curtain most of the times.

Whatever life you are leading, Dads are the solid foundation. They are the shore you swim to when your arms and legs feel increasingly tired. They are the strength you rely on as you take your first tentative steps into the world. Dads can be tender, tough, fragile or powerful but they are probably the most uncomplicated love you will ever know. For daughters, Daddy is the first man they adore, the first man whose eyes shine with overwhelming amazement when they look at us. He is the first man to fall in love with. The relationship between fathers and daughters is like the training ground for what her other male relationships will be like, including the one with her husband. Fathers provide examples on how to relate to the opposite sex. Fathers show their daughters that their feelings and ideas count from a male perspective, and they give their daughters admiration and praise to help grow confidence. They also say that the first man to fall in love with a woman is her dad. The importance of this relationship is immeasurable. On the contrary, when the same is contrasted upon with sons, Daddy is the idol they first aspire to emulate, their mirror image of what will be and possibly the only man they will ever feel comfortable loving. Male children need their fathers because no matter how wonderful a mother may be, it is the father who can provide his son with the reinforcement he needs for what it means to be a man. This can happen when fathers are there for their sons, develop common interests with them, show them their approval, and set a good example. When sons are provided with a good example by their fathers, they develop a healthy gender identity. It is also said that males may also never feel comfortable loving another man like they love their father, which says that a father-son bond is a truly special one.

Daddy is the first man who held you, as a loving parent, with a lump in his throat so huge, only the joy of that love could erase the overwhelming pain of choking on unexpected raw emotion. When thinking about the Father’s Day, your consideration starts right after the moment, when a father holds his newborn baby; he is touched by pure vulnerability for the first time in his adult life, leaving him forever humbled by the unexplained miracles of life. For mothers, the father of our children is the one person we can trust to watch over our babies as closely as we would. We are secure in the knowledge of their love for our precious offspring. Dad is the only other person in the world as fascinated with every nuance and murmur of our babies. He is the one person on the planet with whom we can indulge our need to brag and carry on about our kid's accomplishments, one who will be just as interested and never yawn in the face of our devotion. He definitely has as much role to play as a mother and his significant in a child’s life cannot be ignored at any cost. Their unconditional love, their sacrifices, their steadfast devotions and their encouragement greatly influence our lives.

Parenthood, that a father agrees to shoulder upon, especially when a mother is not around the corner, is a scary mission. When a man gets the first news of becoming a father he may feel a plethora of emotions: happiness, shock, worry, pride, panic, fear, excitement, anxiety and a whole lot of other things. These feelings are understandable and acceptable because they are normal. Addressing these feelings by talking about them with one’s mate, a friend, or one’s family is a very constructive approach. A father’s support helps the baby develop self-confidence and guides him to explore the world around him more enthusiastically. Fathers usually encourage perseverance in their children, more so than other people around them. Fathers also more likely to persuade their children to take risks and overcome their initial fears of new projects. By becoming role models to their children, fathers promote the concepts of honesty, fairness, gentleness, and empathy. Today’s father still possesses the instinct of the provider and defender of his family, but he also shares in the chores of cooking and cleaning. He may still be the one who teaches his son how to hit a cricket ball, or who teaches his daughter the tricks to solve mathematics, but he is also a nurturer and a comforter. He continues to be the symbol of masculinity and discipline, but he is now also a symbol of sensitivity.

When it comes to celebration of Father’s Day, history takes you to share a tale long back. Historians have recorded that there was a tradition to celebrate Father's Day even thousands of years ago. Their study say that 4,000 years ago in Babylon a son called Elmesu carved a Father's Day message on a clay card. The person responsible for its origin is Sonora Smart Dodd who held her father in high esteem. After the death of Sonora’s mother, it was her father who despite all odds raised her and her siblings. In the eyes of Sonora, her father was a brave, a loving and a great man. She was so touched by his generosity and selflessness that she decided to pay tribute to her hero, her father. She chose to celebrate Father’s Day on 19th of June 1910; her father’s birthday. Thus, it was she who triggered the idea of having an official day for the observance of Father’s Day. Even after that, Father’s Day recognition took a long time to officiate, and finally the 3rd Sunday of the month of June was allocated for Father’s Day celebration.

Father’s Day is a time to show respect to the men you call “Dad”. It is a time for you to thank them for the good they have done in our lives; and, likewise, it is a time to forgive them for whatever shortcomings they may have. Fathers may not always be perfect, they may not always know best, but for the most part they do love us and try their best to provide the care and discipline we need to become complete human beings. You’ll owe to them to observe at least one day of recognition. You could plan this day as a family event, could use this opportunity to get everyone in the family together for a fun day. Think about including all the dads in your family, not just your own father. A thoughtful card, a letter, or short speech that expresses your love will benefit both you and your dad. Giving dad a heartfelt speech, or card of genuine, loving words at the dinner table, or at some other point when all the family are around (siblings especially), will make this a poignant occasion. This is also the occasion when you could break the ice between your father and you, if any. Once again remember that neither you are perfect, nor your father. And this is the day when you could diminish all the distances. If nothing of that sort, even a small hug could do your purpose.

This day is something that is so close to your heart, and you wish to attach your emotional values to it to the most.
