Fatherhood: A Career!

All couples waits for the very moment that they will become parents. For the mothers, since they are the ones who carry the babies for nine months inside their womb it is given that they have already started their new career in life. But for the fathers it is something different. There's no school or curriculum teaching on how to become a father. Sure there are books, and stories from other fathers but that doesn't mean that their stories and experience will be the same as yours. Of course you'll notice that a few will surely be like yours but still the learning and development is quite different.

Do you believe that the painter wouldn't be able to remake his masterpiece as exactly the same as his first work. Yes it is true! Though he may be able to remake the replica, yet it is still not exactly the same. The stroke will be different and the weight and amount of paint will not be as it is used before. The artist will not be able to control the fact that his works is based on his emotional state. He may be happy today but tomorrow will be another thing. This also goes on with being a father. You may replicate the discipline and the manner of bringing up of your father but you won't be able to copy your result to your son. Hi has a mind of his own. His thoughts are different from yours. So taken from a common term being a father requires all your attention. Fathers may not be always around but the mere thought for the kids that they are being guided by the father is enough to keep children on the right track.

The words of the fathers are so powerful. Just like the bosses in a company they may have a stern voice sometimes but still the compassion and the love still floats over that big and cranky voice. Though all or almost all fathers focuses on discipline they sill differ on how they implement discipline. Some may have been very autocratic, others may have been very lenient, others may have been democratic and some may have managed to weigh their action before making a decision. Of all, the combination of the three is the best. Giving flexibility on the event when to use a certain discipline. Fatherhood doesn't just stop on disciplining it is also does give life and support not only for the children but also for the mothers. A father doesn't only master one thing but he is required to be the jack of all trade. So if you think fatherhood is just something well, you better think again. It is not just a job but it is a work and most importantly it is a career.
