Fathers Day / March 6, 2019 / Eve Callahan.
This act of yours will tell him that you still care for him. Today Fathers Day is celebrated in more than 50 countries all over the world on the third Sunday of June. In 2010 the third Sunday of June and thus Fathers Day will be on the 20th. This holiday is similar with Mothers Day only that it is (obviously) for fathers. We used to make gifts for our mothers every year on Mothers Day. Why not search for Fathers Day presents as well? Fathers Day presents can be anything you think will make your dad really happy. Is your dad an avid reader? Then buy him a book you are sure he will really like.
Let him really have his way Youre usually the one who decides how to spend the weekend and what work needs to get done. Why not let your husband decide what he wants to do. Instead of grocery shopping repairing and babysitting let your husband sleep in or go out with his friends. He might want to take the whole family out to a movie or play with the kids for hours in the park let him have his fun. Dads get to spend very little time with their kids and its always a source of guilt for them. A very special kind of acknowledgment This gift will take some planning but itll be worth it in the end try and get your father in law your husbands dad or his granddad to call him up and tell him hes doing a great job as a dad. If youre unable to get in touch with your father-in-law for whatever reason talk to the father figure in your husbands life. The call and the words of encouragement will mean a lot to home more than a Ferrari or sports tickets.
If he is fond of his camera and likes taking pictures you could buy your dad a camera case and let him experiment with underwater photos. Does your father prefer the comfort of Apple products? Look for Apple accessories and you will eventually find exactly what you think your father would want. If your father loves sports think of buying him equipment from his favorite team. While the gift is truly important your father will surely appreciate a personal visit from you. Even if you have a very busy schedule (which you probably do have) you should make time to visit your dad and remember the good old times. Have a nice time on Fathers Day. Parenting has three stages one when the kids are infants and most of your time is consumed either changing diapers or warming a milk bottle two when they get to grade school and later become teenager and its a constant back and forth of temper tantrums and three once the kids move out and its always just a hurried phone call from miles away. During these stages perhaps teenage is the only time when kids can really celebrate birthdays Christmases mothers day and fathers day. Other than that these important holidays and parents are often neglected.
Another good way to celebrate this special day is to prepare a Fathers Day dinner. Prepare your Fathers favorite foods. If you dont know how to cook ask your mother to help or dial in the delivery number of his favorite restaurant. Always make sure that everybody is present on the table. Have fun talk and enjoy! Give him some Fathers Day sweets for desert. Every Fathers Day I am reminded how fortunate I was to have a Dad like mine. My Dad was "Number One" and yes I miss him. But I never bothered to buy him a tie. My sisters and I knew what he wanted more. My Dad was a very quiet gentle caring father of four girls - no boys! Thinking back I am sure Dad was a little "over his head" with all of us girls. I dont think he really knew what to do with us. "No rough-housing" was a standard phrase my Dad would use.
Men often give themselves a hard time. They often expect themselves to be strong masterful providers to work long hours be successful in their careers whilst at the same time being loving sensitive partners and fathers keen and enthusiastic about sharing and spending time with their families. Lets take some time this weekend to stop and celebrate fathers on Fathers Day. For many of us there are different father figures in our lives apart from the father who gave us our genetic makeup; step fathers grandfathers fathers-in-law as well as other key male role models can play a significant part in influencing our opinion of men and our expectations from male relationships in the future.
