Father

Besides that, fathers are known to be emotionally aloof, and out of touch with their feelings, although they are physically present. They often have an attitude of “love me or hate me, I’m your dad and there is nothing you can do about it.” The father’s word is ever so often unquestioned, his decision final, and his influence dominant in all matters relating to family. It is either his way, or no way. In the past, research studies did not place much importance on the role of the father, and his influence...

Absent Fathers

Absent Fathers These days it is not uncommon for children to grow up in a single-mother household with little or no contact from their fathers. I was one of those children. When I was younger I never understood why my dad didn’t want me or why he would take part in conceiving me if he didn’t even care to know who I was. Every year I waited for a phone call, birthday wishes, or a Christmas card, and sadly got nothing. Being raised by a single mother is said to be a cause of some of our country’s...

Conflict: Father

Parent/Child Conflict Parent child relationship has never been easy. We can easily realize it in the texts that we have been reading. I preferred “mother” by Grace Paley and “Father” by Yasushi Inouye. The conflict in the relationship between parent and children is not very clear in those texts, but it is present. What really captured my attention was how in both texts this conflict was resolved by the death of the parents. I also liked how both authors painted the caring of a parent for his child...
