    What exactly a father expect from a son? What are the moral duties of a son?

    What does a typical father think when he grow his child? What he expect from a son when he become old? How much a son should bother his father? Is it moral for a son to think his father demands more than the father should?

    Fathers can expect nothing from a son but what they have instilled in him. If the father has taught him to be a respectful and loving young man that is what they can expect of the son. Parents should let their grown sons go their own way and not make demands or try to control them. They can't be controlled anyway. Parents should set up their lives so that they are cared for when they are old, whether their children want to care for them or not. Grown sons should not bother their parents for money or assistance. As for morals: Thoughts are not moral or immoral. Only actions are moral or immoral.

    I cannot talk about the expectations of a specific father ... but in general ... he is one of the two parents, whose physical genes you 'are' ... thus, like yourself ... one, no one else can ever be ... 

    This unique bond ... between son/daughter, and his/her father... and mother...regardless of all other considerations, and constraints ... is a sufficient justification in itself, for one to think and act in no other way, but kindly, graciously, and generously... and oblige, as much as you possibly can ...

    Because, he/she are a unique someone, who see you, as 'himself/herself'  ...
    Unless ... you hate yourself ... unless you are confused about true human values ... unless you hate human kind.

    Bond of relationship between father and son is based on care and mutual understanding.  For a father, his son is like a star who always wishes  success and happiness for his son. A father nourishes the roots of his son so sincerely and perfectly  that when his son grows, he looks  more happy rather than his son. Likewise, it becomes the morale duty of a son to respect his father, rescue him at the time of need like he did for his son. The word of bothering a father does not suit the relation between son and father  as it is commonly used for those who are not related to you deeply or whose blood is not running inside  your body. In real terms, it  is the responsibility of a son to look after his father specially at his  old age when he is  wholly and solely dependent upon his son. If due to some reasons, a son does not care his father, it would always remain a crying subject for a father who would not complain but might drop tears under the pillow and slowly and slowly one day  he would reach the death bed. Repenting later by a son would never give peace to his soul.

    I think a father hopes his son will make the right decisions in life, a lot of the time hopes for better decisions than he made but sometimes that won't happen. In my view a father should always try to help his son if possible, helping them grow up doesn't really stop at 18, sometimes not even at 30 or 40.

    Father expect nothing from his sons. He just wants that the moral teaching which he gave his grow up son he will follow him. He just want that his son will become a civilized human being who knows his responsibilities towards his country, his family. He just want in his absence his son is able to handle the responsibility very well.

    Father always want to see his son's success. No one else except father who feels proud on the success of his son. Father share his experience of life with his son without any greed. He never think that some day when he is getting old his son will fulfill his desires. A father's love and care which he passes to his son is just free from any kind of worldly greed. He just desire that one day his son will become his walking stick when he is getting old.

    I'll ignore my initial impulse to balk at the gender emphasis, as "society" has placed the "father-son" relationship on a ridiculous pedestal.

    My specific answer to your question is this:  a CHILD owes to his/her parent exactly the reflection of their upbringing.  If it was filled with love, sacrifice, communication, fairness, *MODELLED* responsibility and manners and civic (NOT patriotic) participation and all that, then the grown child is almost certainly going to reflect back the humility, gratitude, and example of which his/her parents can be proud and to which they can be endeared.

    If the kid was ignored, neglected, abused - if the parents were tyrants, selfish, mean, insensitive  - hey - the kid owes them NOTHING but contempt.  But - he owes HIMSELF the chance to have a happy, successful, fulfilling life by harnessing whatever support and inner strength he can to become the person GOOD parents would have raised - NOT for their sorry asses, but for himself.

    Andy deserved Opie.  And Homer deserves Bart.  I'd try to cite real life examples of rotten parents having raised rotten people - but I can fathom no causal examples from memory, and I'm not inclined to depress and anger myself by finding them.

    The author of "A Child Called It"?  He turned out okay, at least according to his books.  I can't get past the first couple of pages of the aforementioned book without wishing his mom alive again so that I could do to her what he was more than entitled to have done had he not been sorta rescued and then followed a rigorous and strong path.  I cannot articulate the carnage, abuse, disrespect, defacation, hatred, and mortal anger that he was certainly entitled to have given his mother, the utter and total spiritual and bodily humiliation he was more than entitled to have subjected her to given the ....

    I've never met her and I loathe the filthy bitch and seethe everytime I happen to think of her selfish and gratuitiously and SHOCKINGLY humiliating and dangerous abuse.

    Anyway - my point?  Karma.  No one - of any authority or from any social strata is "entitled" to respect or deference by virtue of their position - and that includes teachers, judges, cops, clergy, "yer elders" - ANYONE - unless they ARE indeed decent human beings.

    You act like an ass, a brute, or a bully - then you deserve "EJM" - whatever means your victims feel like taking to accomplish just ends, ARE just.

    NO adult is excluded from this, including parents.

    Well, a simple but true, a father expects his son to be like him in many ways.

    Most father will expect his son to be a responsible person since its usually the male's duty to raise and provide the needs of his family in the future.

    I would expect grown sons and daughters both to call their parents every weekend, visit on holidays, and remember birthdays, holidays and anniversaries with a gift and a phone call. Grown children should make arrangements for their parent's care when the time comes, no matter what kind of parents they were. I was taught to respect my parents, even when they are wrong. Bad parents really don't mean to be bad.
