Condom Role of a Condemned Father

November 20, 2011  by: Paulose  Points: 15   Category: Others    Views: 569

Father's day is celebrated every year. What is the role of a father in a modern society? Has he also become another condom which has become an inevitable part of modern life? Is fatherhood losing its value?


World celebrates Father's day every year. Only some of the children- please note the words "only some"- are thinking of finding some gifts to their fathers on this Fathers' Day. In the modern family life, the role of fatherhood is losing its values and responsibilities. Is the image of a father-child relationship the same as it was some previous generations? Or has it also lost its status in the fast changing fashion life?

A father then and now

Is the role of a father the same as it was some 50 years ago? Does it appear to have undergone an evolutionary change? Today, the role of the father is frequently forgotten or relegated to the back seat. Years back, father's status was the major power, the pivotal role of the family. He was the sole deciding authority. He had the autocratic and controlling power over the family. From dawn to dusk he toiled and perspired to earn bread for his family. His presence in the family was magnetic. He was the breath of family life.

Is fatherhood thrown like a condom?

Father is the seed of family growth. Both father and mother build up a family on the anvil of love and responsible life. After they decide to enter into family life their love brings out children. Sex in their life is only the binding part of their family life. When the children were born parental care becomes primary and sex becomes secondary. But is it the same attitude today? There were no condoms and abortions in those days. Divorce and negligence of parental responsibility was not so much as it is today.

In fact, fatherhood today is losing its great importance. In families as well as in societies, their role is underestimated. As Billy Graham, Christian Evangelist, rightly pointed out, "Today fatherhood has become an outmoded relationship". The world should consider his words, "A good father is one of the most unsung, unpraised, unnoticed, and yet one of the most valuable assets in our society."

Why Father's Day?

Father's Day is a yearly observance, celebrated in the USA on the third Sunday of June, as an occasion to help acknowledge the contribution of fathers to individual families and to societies as large. It provides children an opportunity to express love and respect for their fathers, building up cordial relationship between father and child. It is an emotional occasion of gratitude.

Fatherhood losing its sap

In the modern consumerist lifestyle fatherhood is also measured as a commercial commodity. Good fathers are found rare. A lot of children have fathers who abandon, abuse, neglect, or are simply unavailable to them, either physically or emotionally. Broken families are abounding day by day for various reasons.

Let Father's Day help recognizing affectionate fathers

Father's Day is not a commercial commodity like condom that is thrown out devaluing the value and purpose of sex. Nor is it a selfish occasion only to promote marketing. It is an occasion to value and respect fatherhood and to regain its great dignity. How the children who cannot recognize, respect and taste the affectionate embrace of their earthly fathers can be expected to find out their heavenly Father and make this earth a paradise?
