In the exquisite words of American basketball player Jim Valvano, “My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could ever give another person. He believed in me.” Fathers are some of the greatest gifts to humankind. They are the pillars of the household who somehow balance loving us, keeping us disciplined, and taking care of our financial needs.
Children tend to look upwards to their fathers to lay down and enforce rules. Due to this, it has always been a “necessity” for fathers to be “strong and strict.” This strictness often affects their relationships with their kids, as children tend to see strict people as immensely unapproachable. In severe cases, some kids end up being afraid of their fathers.
Thankfully, the above isn’t always the case. Many fathers have been able to break out of the societal expectations of being strict with their kids. This action fosters closer relationships with their children. In my honest opinion, being too tough with your kids essentially puts up an emotional brick wall between you and them. Not only does this damage their development at an early age, but they could carry this throughout their lives.
To surmise the above, fathers truly have their work cut out for them. Ultimately, no one is perfect. As such, people tend to make mistakes. The true strength of a father isn’t in his ability to avoid errors. Rather it lies in his ability to admit his mistakes, apologize, and work towards becoming a better individual. Many fathers all over the world do this every day of their lives. The thought of that is utterly thrilling yet truly beautiful.
In case you’ve not guessed it yet, this article is dedicated to the hardworking pillars of the family: Fathers! This article shall explore some of the most heartfelt and splendid Father’s Day wishes and Father’s Day in heaven quotes. Without further ado, let us begin!
