A day to show Dad he's the best 0
With Father's Day coming up on June 17, it's a good time to show dads everywhere how much they are appreciated.
Fathers often don't receive the same recognition in life that mother's find. Many are away from home at their place of business or on the road, and don't have as many opportunities to connect with their children as mothers so often do.
The difficult part of this picture is that children will look to their fathers, just as they do their mothers, to better understand who they are themselves, and to appreciate their family and heritage.
The most important aspect of Father's Day is to give those children who don't have a close connection with their dads, one day in the year when they can perhaps spend time with their father to know more about him.
For children who already have that type of relationship, Father's Day is an even greater opportunity for them to show Dad how important he is in their lives.
And, as we all know, time goes by fast. Why not spend a few minutes in the day with Dad on Father's Day, to show him a little respect for all he does.
After all, one day he just might not be around to hear those words of kindness from his children.
And children of all ages won't always have their dad there to say these heartfelt words to: 'Happy Father's Day, Dad. We love you.'
