If a new step father is then to be introduced taking time to establish the new relationship is important. Many other role models bring invaluable inspiration and support into a childs life. An impressive school teacher foster parent neighbour can teach so much simply by their attitude behaviour demeanour. A simple word or gesture can provide a lasting impression on a developing child. Even role models from literature film and television can influence how we as children define men and their role in our life and society. And sometimes we learn from the bad examples too how we dont want to be the negative patterns we are determined not to replicate in our later life with our own children. All these are thoughts we can bring to mind as we celebrate fathers on Fathers Day.
Fathers Day is the time when were encouraged to give cards whiskey cigars to our fathers in recognition of their valuable role in our lives. But these days many homes are single-parent families with an absent father maybe seen only occasionally. Step-fathers grandfathers uncles neighbours teachers can all occupy the position of significant male role model and may actually be more supportive and reliable that our real father. Father is often a childs first significant male role model. If he falls short is a disappointment the child may become defensive shut off emotionally in a bid to avoid further hurt and let down determined to show they dont care.
Many men are keen to care for their children play with them and be involved in their lives. The days of the hardly present father a somewhat stern distant disciplinarian figure are thankfully waning. Many men want to be hands on fathers playing and being involved getting to know their children and having a good relationship with them as they develop and grow. Grandfathers play an increasingly important part in many childrens lives. With the high incidence of divorce many single parents rely heavily on the support of friends and family to help with childcare.
I think he thought wed "break." But Dad would do the quiet things with us like telling stories about far away places where we could raise giant cabbages hunt for gold or drill for oil. His stories were exciting and sometimes very funny - at least to his four daughters. Wed fall to sleep at night thinking about going on adventures with Dad. We never knew what to buy for Dad on Fathers Day. Of course wed ask but his answer was always the same. "I have everything a Father could want including all the ties I can ever use." Ties were "out." What was left? Then we caught on to what Dad really liked not just on Fathers Day but on days whenever he needed something on wanted something.
