A pet peeve of mine is hearing people suggest that fathers are not important.  Or that fathers are the bumbling idiots you see on tv sitcoms.

Here is a video about the importance of dads.  Feminism is nice for equal rights and all, but let’s not forget that mothers are mothers and fathers are fathers.  The video is 15 minutes, but worth watching.  If that’s too long (or not), check out the two articles below from Psychology Today:

Here’s an article about the difference between a father being there and not being there.

Don’t skip this one even though it’s last.  Here are some really powerful statistics that will make you want to go hug your husband and thank your dad.

Thanks, Dad.

  1. Certainly makes me grateful for an amazing father and an awesome husband!

  2. Those are powerful. I remember our pastor talking about visiting a prison near Mother’s Day, and how a greeting card company had offered them to criminals to send to their mothers. They kept running out due to demand. On Father’s Day, however, they couldn’t GIVE them away. The men in the prison either had no father figure or hated their fathers, and the cards sat in a pile, accumulating dust.
