The role of a father in a family is undeniable. Ancient, medieval or modern, be it any society, fathers always have had a significant role to play in a child’s life. A father is a friend, philosopher and guide to his children. His shoulder provides the perfect comfort from the doldrums of life and his arms provides complete protection. There’s no way that father’s love can be substituted by anything or anyone.
A father-child relationship is definitely a reason to celebrate and Father’s day is designed essentially for this purpose. In modern society Mother’s day came into being first, because mothers were regarded as the only nurturer of a child.

The role of a father was traditionally believed to be more of a provider and guide. True that a mother owns the divine right of giving birth to a child, a father helps him open up his eyes and see the world. He lends him his experience and confidence to face the world. Its only a father who inspires his children to be independent and take life in their own stride.
