Did anyone of you ever wonder what is the role really of the father in parenting??? Usually it's the mother who does all the parenting to the children while the father provides for the need of the family. The mother always plays the crucial role in the children upbringing , while the father do the discipline thing . In my point of view, the mother is the one who contributed a lot in a child giving them love, care, nourishment, values. There is this clear cut on what mothers do. How about father what is their role really in parenting ?

I can understand what you are saying here. It is true that mother does shoulder a lot of responsibility and the father is also there but then the question comes to mind about his role. A father I believe is just as important as a mother. A father needs to be there for his wife and show respect to her in front of the children. He serves as the role model and if a man has good morals in life he will show good work ethics for his children to look up to and live up to.
