A child who grows up in a restless atmosphere is unconfident, sad, disobedient, rebellious, stubborn, jealous and competitive. In later years, these children suffer from developing disorders in education and are continually punished for offenses resulting from an environment lacking the cooperation between the father and the mother and their joint care. A child needs the father – and if it does not have him, it wants to know the reason why. Fathers participation in the childhood of children represents the macho element that is so important for the child as a maturing young boy/girl. Fatherly leadership gives a child’s character a direction and the father’s action and behaviour represents security, safety and support for the child.
For a child of preschool age, the father is a associate of the world of men, his presence and the upbringing the child receives from him enrich the child with further knowledge, he makes the child familiar with many other activities that mothers usually do not practice, the father is usually the child’s first sports teacher, teacher of professional subjects, he teaches and familiarizes the child with things related with the servicing of the household. The father usually plays a crucial role model for a boy; for a girl, he is the first perfect man. Most children are proud of their fathers and of the things he has done in his life. Nevertheless, there are also children who cannot speak highly about their fathers; there are children who cover their fathers’ offenses, misdemeanours and flaws; children who feel ashamed of their fathers; and there are children who prefer not to him.
Are of their fathers. These are the children whose fathers have frustrated them, who did not experience fatherly love, but knew his weaknesses. Even nowadays children are physically punished for misdemeanours that they have dedicated. Corporal punishments may silence a child and force it to obey the stronger adult. If a child is forced by parents to confess to something that it did not do, it is a wrong that the child will remember for many years; a issue that the boy or girl will never forget and for which he or she will never forgive the parents. A modern child looks for authority in its father, but it also wants him to be its lifelong friend.
One of the greatest academic values is a child’s feeling that the parents support it in failure and in moments of crisis. Such support is provided by both parents, but not to the same extent. Mothers have an natural knowing of what is going on with their children; they are able to sense their children’s problems and the feeling of uncertainty even when the child says nothing. The father shows a child the way and direction. A child is impressed by a father who can bear the brunt of complicated life situations; a father who plays with the child while it is small, helps the child build its dreams while maturing and helps it plan its career when choosing a career. A child is impressed by a father who is clever with his hands, who helps the mother sustain the household, who does not cry when sick, but teaches the child courage and self-reliance as he serves as an example. In broken families without a father the childhood of a child is more difficult, because the child is lacking a male role model.
