Father's Day festival is considered extremely important as it help acknowledge the contribution of fathers to individual families and to societies as large. Observance of Father's Day provide children an opportunity to express love and respect for their fathers. The sentiment goes a long way in strengthening father-child relationship and consequently in the emotional development of a child. I think fathers are relatively ignored. A lot of parenting success/failures are attributed to mothers as if they're the only ones in charge of parenting. In school, my son would bring home yearly some Mother's Day gift that they did as a class project. But he never brought a Father's day card or gift. Hmm... So here's to the fathers in GF and to the member's fathers. Happy Father's Day and may your place in the family be positively recognised today by your children and other loved ones, if already not being done on a regular basis.
