How can father's express their love for their children so that there is no doubting their love?
It is fathers day tomorrow. Loving deeds underscore what fathers can do for their children. These things will truly impact on them for their entire lives.
Since it's "Father's Day" shouldn't it be about the children (honoring) their father and finding ways to express (their) love and appreciation for him?
I would not expect "Mother's Day" to be about mothers finding ways to show their children they love them by doing "loving deeds".
Both "Mother's Day" and "Father's Day" are about the children (honoring) their parents! One man's opinion! :-)
Yes definitely it should be but there may be a lot of children out there who may not feel that they wish to honor their father on father's day. Unfortunately the world in not a perfect place, some fathers need to sow the seeds for good relationships.
sallybea, I agree there may be children who don't (wish) to honor their father or mother on these "Hallmark" holidays. Buying cards, gifts, or going to Sunday brunch are not required if they don't want to. Young kids aren't expected to do much.
I think there absolutely is. Fathers (and mothers) do things on a daily basis that express their love--feed, clothe, support. But kids also need to be told and my husband tells our kids he loves them daily. They may call for advice, or just to chat, or they call some help with something, or to just check on one of us to see how we are feeling--their dad is always there, always willing to help but...he also voices his love for them. Same for our grandchildren.
The best way for anyone to express love for someone else is to treat that other person with kindness and respect, and recognize that children need understanding. Showing the other person that they're valued by listening to what he has to say, and spending time talking with them, is important. So is letting the other person know one enjoys the time shared between them; and making that time enjoyable for the other with warmth and laughter and a sense of trust - not distance and a sense of "superiority".
The relationship between fathers and children is no different. The points above are the foundation on which a relationship grows stronger, rather than weaker or more distant; and it's the back-drop against which everything else that goes on in the relationship should be addressed and/or viewed.

My Pops taught me how to stand up for myself. How not to take crap from anyone, how to dream big, as well as to pursue those dreams with vigour and a fervent heart. Happy Father's Day, Dad!

This is always a bittersweet time for me ... I love my father but we are not close. Father's Day always reminds me of the distance between us.
