Nowadays fathers are more and more involved in raising and taking care for their children. Mothers have also a job outside the house so fathers need to help. Such fathers who take care of their children are called hands-on dad.
It is normal now to see fathers change diapers, doing them in bath, tucking them in bed, reading bedtime stories, playing with their kids at the park or doing groceries. And I believe those so called hands-on dad are more than happy to do so. They feel no pressure, they just want to be part of their kids’ life.
So does my husband. He is one hands-on dad. When G, our daughter, needs him, she can rely on him. In turn he wants to provide her without spoiling her. G gets more and more independent now but my husband still shows he really is interested in her life. They both love to talk about music, sport, movies and fashion. I love to see them together. Their bond is the same I had with my dad.
Let us not forget the fathers who are not involved in their kids’ life because of several reasons such as divorce, impossible working hours or working far away from the family. They want to be hands-on dad but circumstances don’t allow them to. For these fathers I wish them the best.
On this Father’s Day G makes a complete breakfast for her father. She takes care of him for one morning. Showing him the appreciation of what he has been doing for her. What he finds it normal to do which she doesn’t take for granted.
Happy Father’s Day!
