Every father has his role in the family. Some fathers are serious, while some are humorous and gentle. Today the status of men and women are gradually becoming equal, and the role of “fatherhood” slowly gaining more awareness within society. In the past, a father’s role was just to earn money and support the family. Now, fatherhood is more about building a good relationship with their children and sharing the burden of child care with his wife.
The idea of what makes a good Father started in the West, today, it has also been adopted by Asian countries. Research shows that promoting fatherhood is good for children’s development and has significant benefits for their social skills, emotional development, overall self-worth and feelings of being loved. Scholars have observed that fathers are not inferior to mothers in performing parental duties, and both parent’s duties must complement each other. Psychological experts point out that when children get along with their fathers, it is different from getting along with their mothers. Children who get along with their fathers are more stimulated, which helps their children’s physical health and social emotions, so that children can learn to be independent and experience the benefits of contact with the environment.
As Father’s Day is around the corner, let’s take a look at how fatherhood can be promoted in today’s society, and how we can embrace a new era surrounding it.
What makes for a good father-child relationship?
A sign of the importance of fatherhood, as founded by a US study, has shown that children who are given love from their fathers from as early as infancy are better in restraining their impulses as they grow up. However, what is a good father-child relationship? A father needs to be more sensitive and maintain a good emotional connection with the child. In order to have a good relationship, it is necessary to give your child companionship and patience.
As the role of fatherhood becomes more important, Asians are actively promoting fatherhood campaigns. The purpose is to provide more support to fathers, including lectures, training, and parent-child activities. There are organizations in Malaysia, such as the “Better Dads Malaysia”, which promote and educate the important role of fathers in the family. There are also some research groups to collect professional research data to raise awareness about it.
The Government’s Policy
The government provides paternity leave for men to encourage them to devote time and effort to their wife and children. It is used to promote family harmony and improve the parent-child relationship. In the process, men are reminded of the importance of family care and fatherhood, thereby changing the traditional view that fathers only need to earn money to support the family.
