A Father's Love

Reflections on Being a Father

Much is written about mother love, but really, a father's love has its own special power. If you have a loving father, or strive to be one, read on...

Loving Fathers

The birth of a first child is a major shift in many men's view of life. From that moment on, there's a profound shift to selflessness. In fact, many men will be quick to admit that with that first glance at their child, they know immediately that there is nothing they wouldn't do to protect and care for that little person. Being a father is a role that a man can take on with pride anticipating the joy that comes with watching his children grow up.

Father love means many things to many people. For some, it is the support and encouragement they received before a big game. For others it could be hours that dad spent helping with math homework. But overall, one of the most special things about being a father is that feeling of accomplishment when your child, a small person that you nurtured, loved and taught does something great.

For a daughter, a father's love is one of the most important bedrocks of her growing up. A girl will look to her dad as a symbol of what is good and admirable in a man. It is in the way that dads complement their daughters for their intelligence, beauty and strength that in turn solidifies a young woman's belief in herself. Being daddy's little girl is a role that many young woman relish and this is indeed another one of the very special aspects of being a dad. While this role definitely comes with a significant amount of pressure there is nothing more satisfying for a father than having his little girl look up to him.

A father's love is, of course, an equally important element in a young man's life. Many boys love to do all the things their dads do. Think about that charming image of a father and son fishing; or a son handing a wrench to his dad under the hood of a car. No matter what daddy is doing you can be certain that the son will want to do it too. Young men learn what it means to be a man from the example of their fathers. Again, this is not a role to be taken lightly. Many young men will follow in their father's career paths because they are in awe of the man that raised them to be what they are. This can be one of the most exciting moments of a father's life: when a son or daughter goes to the same college or takes over a family business.

Other than how a father impacts the family, the family too has an impact on the father. The three most amazing things about being a dad are: the hugs and kisses, listening to his children's stories and, most importantly, watching his kids grow up. A father's love is special because it inspires so much love in return.
