The whole burden is therefore left on the shoulders of the mother. She is the one who has to provide for her kids and protect them all by herself.
There are fathers who provide everything their family requires but they often neglect other important duties like spending time with their kids because they are too busy chasing after multi-billion contracts.
Of course, there are different types of fathers who exist in various homes. Read below to ascertain which group or groups you fall under.
Even when his children are grown up, he still sees them as kids and treats them like kids. He never plays with them even when he is at home during vacation.
In this type of home, the atmosphere is constantly tense; the kids don’t respect their father, they only fear him.
2. The Caring/Loving Father:
He creates time to get involved with everything his kids do; from academics down to extracurricular activities.
This type of father won’t mind changing diapers because of the love he has for his kids. He does his best to make sure they are comfortable and well taken care of.
3. The Wayward Father:
This type of father often neglects his children; all he cares about is spending money on women and having fun. The training of the children is solely left to the mother.
4. The Wise Father:
He is like a psychic; always discerning and cautioning. He learns early to allow them to chase their dreams and he only plays his part; advising and praying.
5. The Overprotective Father:
The only place he allows them to go is the church; they don’t even attend birthday parties or other social functions like their mates.
The kids are often under house arrest because he is scared of the world hurting them. He forgets humans don’t grow wise without making their own mistakes.
6. The Nagging Father:
He would stand in the middle of the compound yelling and nagging over every little thing. He never turns a blind eye to anything and he doesn’t hand over some cases to the mother. He is the sole disciplinarian in the house.
7. The Nonchalant Father:
He hands over every domestic affair to his wife. He doesn’t even care about the whereabouts of his kids as far he knows they are alive, he doesn’t bother to call them to order. He lets them behave anyhow they want from a very tender age.
8. The Drunk Father:
He doesn’t provide for his family; the only thing he does is get his wife pregnant. He leaves the welfare and disciplining of his kids to his wife. He is almost invisible in his home.
9. The Difficult to please Father:
He never encourages his kids even when they perform well at school. He would only say “Is it not your mates that are carrying first in class?”
10. The Lazy Father:
11. The Responsible Father:
Although he has his own flaws, he never allows the kids see them. In their eyes, he is the best Daddy in the world.
12. The Workaholic Father:
He works hard round the clock to provide financially for his family. Even during vacations, he is busy on his tablet or computer, working.
So, his kids grow up never really knowing him; they all bond with their mother but never with their father.
It also involves being around and disciplining them when necessary, holding them close but also knowing when to let go. Fatherhood is a wonderful experience for those who are fortunate enough to be entrusted with such a duty.
I hope you’ve given your best shot at fatherhood? Are your kids proud of you?
Happy Father’s Day to all responsible and loving Fathers in the world! I love you Daddy and I’m very proud of you!!
