A Father is the Man of the house and in older times he generally behaved like it was his duty to be angry. Over time though, Indian men have mellowed down. They have understood the responsibilities of father and strive to fulfil them. That’s good because a angry home are not exactly great for a child. Roles of Mothers and Fathers used to be very clearly defined back in our days. Today the boundaries are getting blurred, if not erased. With more women going to work, lesser support from grandparents and un-affordable nannies, men have had to step up. This is a positive step and is very beneficial to the child and its development. A responsible father should focus on his child’s strengths and make his child excel in the field that he/she likes. He should aim to fulfil the needs of his child. Besides, he should also play a caretaker and disciplinarian role in his child’s life. A father should portray a pillar of trust in a child’s life. He must be the ideal role model and the child’s first “superhero”.
