Family is a big thing to many people, but sometimes things gets complicating through history. Being a family everyone has a role, such as the mother, father and kids. Kids responsibilities are to always obey their parents and help them out when needed. The concept I want to discuss is the role of a father. Basically a father is the second person in line to take care of the child after the mother, he doesn't stay by the baby's side every single second. A father is there to play along with the kids mostly physically as they want. The importance of the relationship children share with their father gives them a psychological well-being and adjustment. I can relate this to my father, if he wasn't constant in my life today I wouldn't be the person I am. He is the one who always is there to question everything I do or say so that he knows what steps I take in this life. He is my mentor and role model. He taught me everything I know from the beginning when I was moved to two different countries and learning the languages (English and Arabic). Even though I sometimes (maybe all the time) hate the long two to three hour lectures, I was able to track back to those words to choose things on my own now. The fact that a father's role is really important in a child's life it is true. In many homes today in the United States the divorce rate is high, which means the possibility of the kids being taken care of by the mother is high. When many things such as violence happen with a male teenager the main cause is said to be that there is no father present. In my culture the cause many things is blamed towards the father's absence, which many spend their free time in the coffee shop instead of being home with their children. I say be thankful to who is in your life, there is always someone who doesn't have any family at all.
