Orlando, FL 6/16/2017 4:00:43 PM— As a basic instinct, when we are children we seek the protection of our parents. Mothers are expected to provide all the tenderness, love and care. They are mostly in charge of keeping family matters in order.
Fathers, however, are expected to provide all that too, but there is natural and cultural assumption for them to provide protection to their families.
Perhaps you remember your childhood years when everything seemed so simple. The world may not have been perfect, but in most cases, your parents may have made it just perfect for you. Of course, in those early years we are unable to appreciate something so special and valuable. We may not even have a good reference of what could really be worse. At the time, we only know to justify our demands and complains. Unbelievably, we may have always felt unhappy and unsatisfied with our little piece of paradise.
It is not until after we’re grown-ups that we realize, how important the role of being parents is. Life puts us through so many challenges. Making big boy or big girl decisions is something we may have not been prepared for.
We work through difficulties, and learn how to swim with the sharks. Even though our parents may still be here for us, we received the memo:
RE: IT IS YOUR TURN!
Even if you decided to build your life surrounded by adults and not have children around, you are still in charge of protecting those you love and those who love you. You can’t just run away from it!
Going back to the fatherhood topic, not forgetting that Father’s Day is this Sunday. Now that we are adults, we understand that need. The need of being a responsible father. For your family, for your kids and for the future generations. We now know the psychological consequences of a failed fatherhood, but let’s talk about the many blessings we receive from all the good daddy’s in Central Florida.
Fathers (biological dads, step-dads, and other important father figures) can be a massive force for good, and bad, in their children’s lives.
Research shows that good enough fathering helps children develop:
fewer behavioral problems
better results at school
higher self-esteem and life-satisfaction
lower chance of becoming criminals or abusing drugs
more satisfying adult relationships
Fathers are fundamentally important to their children. Good or bad, living at home or living away, alive or dead, happy or sad... every dad matters and has a huge influence on his kids’ development.
The relationship children have with their father affects their self-esteem, how well they do at school, even whether they are able to form happy, long-lasting relationships as adults.
According to Psychology Today, a report in "Fathers and Their Impact on Children's Well-Being":
"Even from birth, children who have an involved father are more likely to be emotionally secure, be confident to explore their surroundings, and, as they grow older, have better social connections.
Congratulations to all the Fathers of the world, America, Florida and especially here in Orlando!
