With Mother’s Day recently past, we approach that other day of celebration of a parent… Father’s Day! One of my favorite quotes related to Father’s Day is by Anne Geddes: “Any man can be a father but it takes someone special to be a Dad.”
Fathers have such an important impact on the lives of their children. Whether biological or not, an involved father helping raise his child(ren) can greatly improve his child’s future. Things like educational level and law-abiding behavior have been linked to paternal involvement. Girls tend to have happier and healthier relationships when they had good paternal role models.
Some popular gift ideas this year include items with poems. Written on cards, printed on shirts, tools, blankets, or frames, these poems celebrate various aspects of many different types of dads. We love the idea! Other fun ideas are movie tickets, those snack boxes from different cultures that are delivered monthly, or homemade gift baskets with things he enjoys to drink or eat and a gift card to his favorite place. So many ideas out there!
Enjoy celebrating this day with the dad(s) in your life. And to all the dads out there, Happy Father’s Day!
