All of us know that the roles of a father are just as important for a child as that of a mother. If mothers are the heroes of child education, then the significance of a father in the development and emotional wellbeing of a child is no less. Children depend on their father for their spiritual, emotional, physical, financial and social wellbeing.
For daughters, their father is the ideal man in their world and also the first man they adore, while for sons their father is an idol and the strongest man they aspire to emulate.
Although society perceptions have changed nowadays ; the father is no longer just seen as a provider and guide for his children; With most husbands and wives working, fathers in present times are just as involved in their child's education and up bringing as mothers are.
Today, most fathers do not shy away from changing nappies or taking the difficult task of putting their baby to sleep.
