Asalamu alaykum everyone,
Topic 2 of Chemical Bonding series discusses the relationship with a father and the first short article is titled 'What is a father and his role in raising children?'. This is my first article in English and I am really happy doing this.
The presence of the father in the lives of children is protection, care, authority and family integration. The value of a father is important and should be discussed.
Children need to feel the aspects of protection, care and guidance. It is somewhat different from what they find with the mother. The father is the primary caretaker of the family and teacher and friend for the children knowing their thoughts, inclinations, hobbies and have an understanding.
In each and everyone's life, a father is one of the necessary factors in the upbringing and preparation of life challenges. The role of a man is not only housing, clothing and expenses. The father's participation in raising children is very important because it has a strong influence on the personality of the children as the father can achieve a family balance through his interest in his children and accompanying them. They then become responsible in and without his absence.
The multiple responsibilities of the father outside the home does not absolve him of his family responsibility, which is equally important where he must be a role model for his children so that they can easily mimic good behaviour in their lives rather than implementing tips and commands for behaviours they do not see.
The father, in the eyes of his children, is a perfect thing, he is their hero who imitates him in everything. His movements, his actions, his humility, his aspirations, and the father who has a clear and sound moral, financial presence in the life of his family and his children can prevent many obstacles to growth. The father must direct the children to the right path when they make mistakes at the right time.
This is what a father is.
Next week, I will write about what Islam says about a father.
