Traditionally many people regarded only the mother as the sole nurturer of a child. The role of a father is often viewed as a secondary status as compared to a mother. The truth is the father is just as important for a child as the mother. Fathers play a significant role in the development and emotional well being of a child. Fathers provide spiritual, emotional, physical, financial and social well being. The role of the father for daughters, is extremely important. The father is the ideal man in the world and also the first man they adore. For sons, a father is an idol and the strongest man they try to imitate.
With both mothers and fathers in the workplace, fathers are as involved in child raising as mothers are. Fathers can no longer shy away from diaper changing, feeding, and putting children to bed. All this helps strengthen the father-child bond and the family as a whole.
