My Dad.. My Hero..

Good Essays
Today, 16th June, Father's Day will be celebrated across the world- a day dedicated to those men who are an integral part of a child's life. While the mother is always acclaimed for the role of being a homemaker and bringing up children with the right values, the father plays a silent role of being a hero. Though we may not understand this role when we are young, but the fact is it our father who has groomed us to be the person we are today. Each of his actions or words subtly leaves an impression in our mind and without realizing we follow it. While the caring role of a mother continues to remain through our growing years. During our childhood he protects us from all the problems we fear to face. He is our provider, our Man Friday who has a solution to all our anxieties. As we grow up he evolves to be our friend and a guardian angle who not only protects but also let us make our mistakes and learn from them. As the years pass and we move on in different stages he set the tone and makes us ready to accept the practical aspects that life throws up at us.... holding our hands in that big, strong hand makes everything right in the world. Fathers are usually compared to the coconut shell which has a hard exterior and a very soft interior. Yes this is exactly what they are ..... and I tell this from my personal experience. As I evolved through life, I saw my father evolving me- accepting me with my mistakes, comforting me with his words and keeping me smile with his his little thoughts and actions. Wherever he goes my father leaves an indelible impression on all those he met. His warm and selfless nature will make any unknown person a friend and I learnt the lesson of accepting people without trying to change them. My Dad is an encyclopedia of facts and knowledge. He believes that reading is the only way to widen our knowledge and he made it a point to bring all sorts of books for me to read, whatever the price and I learnt the lesson that

    The role of a father is more than just another parent at home (Popenoe, 1996). Having a father, the male biological parent in a child’s life is important because it brings a different type of parenting that cannot be replicated by anyone else (Stanton, 2010). Fathers who are present and active in a child’s life provide great benefits to a developing child (Popenoe, 1996). Having a father brings a different kind of love. The love of the father is more expectant and instrumental, different from the love of a mother (Stanton, as cited in Pruett, 1987).…

    The special nature of father-child relationship is unique with each child. The basic nature and responsibility of a father is to provide material and emotional needs and to protect the child from harm and/or danger. The child should feel free to verbally express him/herself with a sense of security - all of which would enhance the child’s potential to become his/her best person. When the parent is deceased it can be a challenge to embrace life until you began to seek the true life history of your loved one and perhaps, discover yourself.…

    We all strive for attention and affection, whether it is from family, friends, or a random individual. But earning the attention of the ones we wish to love shouldn’t be hard, especially if it’s a family. “Patching Holes” is a story by Andi Long, which describes her relationship and daily life with her cold hearted father who is somewhat like most dads or father figures I’ve come to know. As a child growing up, I never really had a father figure. For me my father figure is my grandpa, which is weird seeing as he is so much like the father in the story “Patching Holes”, just cold hearted, hardworking and violent. But, he shows small flashes of compassion here and there. I have longed for his attention since I was a child for the simple feeling of having a dad. A father figure is what most people want but a lot of people don’t have.…

    “Difficulties are just things to overcome, after all.”(Ernest Shackleton) When we are in difficult conditions and everything is out of control, we must try to be positive. Generally and historically, fathers have had responsibilities of protecting and caring for their families. A good father is someone who is a good provider, has the best interest and safety for their family, loves his family and ensures well being of family.

    As the youngest boy in my family, I considered myself to be the “Spoiled one”. While growing up it always made me sad to see my close friends and even the people on the TV without a father or even a father-like figure around. Seeing this made me appreciate how much of an impact my father has made on his children’s lives. To this day, he continues to profess how proud he is of me and my siblings, and that he will always be there to support us in whatever we choose to get involved in. In every aspect of my life, my father pushes me to excel as much as I possibly can. Whenever I feel like giving up on my dreams and goals, or if I have a question or concern, I know that I can always call on my father for advice. My father is a very loving man and I have learned from him that sometimes you have to put others needs before your own, but not to the point where you completely give up on your own needs.…
