Father’s Day: Why Dads are Important

Father’s Day is a special day set aside for sons and daughters to show their dads how much he means to them. However, it’s more than that. It’s a day to show the world just how important dads are. Fathers play a very important role in the lives of their children. In fact, they have a much bigger influence in their kid’s life than most people are aware of.


Father’s Day: Why Dads are Important

Here are a few of the reasons why dads are important and should be honoured on Father’s Day:

1. By spending time and playing with their kids, dads help them to develop healthier emotional and psychological behaviours.

2. Dads teach their daughters that women are to be treated with respect and decency at all times, which helps prevent them from making bad choices when they start dating.

3. They teach their sons how to treat women with respect and how to love and cherish the woman in their life.

4. Dads have a way of teaching their kids how to be courageous and to never compromise the things they believe to be important.

5. Fathers tend to push their kids to be more independent and to explore the world a little more than moms. Women tend to hold tight and try to always protect their kids, even when they should let go.

6. They often provide more stimulating play than moms do. As a result, kids learn how to deal with aggressive feelings a little better than kids who grow up without a father.

7. Dads teach their kids that the sky is the limit and they should always follow their dreams.

8. They have a huge influence in their child’s academic success. They help to encourage them to keep trying and push hard to achieve their goals.

9. Dads help children to feel more safe or protected emotionally, which makes them less likely to make bad decisions later in life.

10. Kids learn how to respect and protect themselves from their dads, who are always looking after them and making sure they’re safe.
