Everyone wants a happy to make daily life more meaningful. Happy family consisting of a head of the family, a mother and children who grow up healthy. Father as head of the family should have leadership qualities and is responsible for maintaining and protecting the family members.
The duties of a head of the family is not as easy as you think we are all, more responsibility must be borne by the head of the family. In this blog i want state the duties of father's.1
The father’s everyday role has changed significantly from years past, particularly in dual-income households. A father’s positive interactions with his children have positive influences on children’s development, and should be encouraged. Even in cases of depressed mothers, a father’s involvement reduces anxiety, depression, aggression and hyperactivity in children, suggests a 2009 research study published in "Canadian Journal of Nursing Research." This study also found that excessive working--specifically on the weekend--increased the risk for emotional issues in children. Staying involved physically and emotionally is one of the most critical duties of a father for kid’s health: be available for social support such as long talks about girls with your son, take the kids to doctor appointments and baseball practice or bring them with you to pick up groceries.
2 ) Provide
Fathers have a moral responsibility to provide financial support in the form of child support if parents are unmarried. Even in committed relationships, most families still require two earners to get by. However, fathers who see their obligation as only providing for needs such as shelter, food and clothing tend to participate less in other arenas, like social and emotional support, reports a study published in 2013 in "Journal of Exercise Rehabilitation." Doing your best to seek and keep employment will help you full fill this provider role, but don’t lose track of other areas, such as emotional support. If you have trouble finding work, provide help around the house to take the pressure off other wage earners while you seek employment.
3) Teach Good Communication
Learning to communicate starts young, and fathers are in an excellent position to teach this to their children. Communication is critical for connectedness, and can even reduce emotional and behavioral issues such as substance abuse, notes a 2010 study published in "Addiction and Behavior." Ask your children questions, stay open minded about their ideas and remain calm during discussions. Treat them and their mother kindly, regardless of whether you are still a couple. By treating children the way you want them to treat others in the future, you are teaching important, life-long skills.
4) Support Mom
What you do as a father has a great impact on your child’s mother, as well as affecting the child. Your support of your partner not only shows children what a healthy relationship looks like, but also assists moms in meeting their parenting goals. For instance, support from fathers increases the likelihood that mothers will meet breastfeeding goals, according to research published in 2005 in "Pediatrics." You can help her meet other goals too, by making dinner if the goal is healthy eating for the family. If you are no longer together, you can still assist by offering to grab something at the store, providing a listening ear or taking the children for an extra weekend if she has to work.
A father is a role model too. The way he behaves, acts and reacts, carries himself, interacts with others etc. are all watched by the child and imitated in many ways. The child is consciously and sub-consciously watching the father's actions and learning from it. If the father is calm and cool, so the child shall be. If the father is temperamental, the child thinks that this is normal behavior and picks up cues from him. In rare cases, the child may reject negative behavior and behave in a positive manner.
He gives a sense of security to the child in more ways than one. The child with a father to fall back on is a more confident and balanced child. The child grows up with a comfort that the father will protect and support the child at all times. The child also behaves with responsibility if there is a fear of retribution from a disciplinarian father.
