10 Roles a Father Plays in His Children's Lives

1. Protector

From the moment you’re born, your father is one of your biggest reassurances. He held you in his strong arms, looking at the new life he helped create, and vowed to always protect you. A father’s sense of protection for his child is incomparable. He does whatever he can to keep his child from physical harm and mental pain. His heart was probably pounding harder than yours when he let go of the bike from behind, telling the white lie that he was still holding on, but he was always right there, ready to catch you and hold you if you fell. And he’s been in that same position your whole life.

Watching you grow and face the challenges of life, his heart broke with yours whenever you were hurt. When you were a young person with a silly curfew, a newly minted driver’s license, and boyfriends got the shotgun talk, the constant lectures and worried reminders probably got tiresome. But no matter how much you grew, your dad always saw that little child that liked to climb on his back for piggyback rides and shout for Daddy when they were scared. There’s no protection on Earth like that of a father’s.

2. Nurturer

He may have been clumsy at times, but Dad was always there to nurture you. When he knew Mom needed her rest, he was the one that climbed out of bed at 2 AM to go comfort you. He took you to the park on Sunday afternoons and was there to pick you up and kiss the boo-boo when you fell off the monkey bars. He patiently let you put a pink scarf on him and happily accepted your stuffed animal tea party invitations, assuring you that your tea was the best he’s ever had. When you presented him with an abstract smattering of paint, he listened intently as you described how that smudge of paint was him and how that dot of paint was a car, telling you what a good job you’d done. He let you take over story time with your long, epic tales of aliens, puppies, princesses, and chocolate airplanes to encourage your imagination and confidence. Dad was there your whole life to build you up in a strong, happy person.
