Love Being a Father

Nothing I’ve ever done has given me more joys and rewards than being a father to my children.
Bill Cosby

I loved those years of being Mr. Mom. One of the saddest days in my life was when Jennifer said, “Dad, I can wash my own hair.”
Billy Crystal

It’s quite astonishing: I see most of these fathers all year. Depending on the week, a few might be happy, and some are never happy. At this father-and-son tournament, they are all happy, every round, every day.
Gary Player

When these parenting years have passed, something precious will have flickered and gone out of my life. Thus, I am resolved to enjoy every day that remains in this fathering era.
Dr. James Dobson

Becoming a father fulfilled my life because it added a sense of immortality, with my life and spirit being passed on to future generations through my children. It also enabled me to relive my childhood through the disguise of being a parent, as I play with my children and their toys. I think each one of us maintains our childhood memories and fantasies. Being a parent allows us to release them.

The Importance of Fathers

Above all, I learned this from my father: Being a dad is the most important job I’ll ever have.
George W. Bush

Fathers have a special excitement about them that babies find intriguing. Fathers embody a delicious mixture of familiarity and novelty.
Louise Kaplan

There is no more important relationship for a girl than the one she has with her father. It is a girl’s father who helps shape her character, forms her trust and I believe entirely sets her expectations of the way men should treat her. He defended me. He enouraged me. And he challenged me.
Condolezza Rice

There’s no pillow quite so soft as a father’s strong shoulder.
Richard Evans

When you’re out on the course with your son, you’re each watching the other handle the success and disappointment and unfairness and good luck of the game. You’re letting your son find his way, and at the same time he sees that you’re vulnerable, that you aren’t perfect, that you have feelings and emotions that are human. He learns that even when a man does the best he can, he makes mistakes, and that it’s all right.

Time with Children

When I was a boy scout, Dad would come camping with our troop and freeze his butt off. He didn’t know much about camping, but he would just be there. I learned that’s what’s important about being a father.
John Tesh

Your kids are young only once, and if you miss them the first time, you don’t get a second chance. When I’m home, I’m home and I try to do things with my kids that they’ll always remember.
Paul Azinger

If you don’t eat at least one meal with your children, you give up your best opportunity to teach concern for the needs of others. The family meal is an excellent forum to learn about listening to others, taking turns and, in general, constraining instinctual needs in a social context.
Dr. Lawrence Hatterer

Changing diapers doesn’t sound like much fun, but it’s a great time to interact with the baby one-on-one, to rub her soft belly, tickle her knees, kiss her tiny fingers.
Armin Brott

I remember the times in my boyhood when my father took me to his store in the Bronx on Saturdays, coming home in the well-lit train through snowstorms in the dark winter night, buying the Sunday paper early, the city edition, and the two of us sitting together reading it on the way home, his joy in having me there, wordless moments when I felt seen and heard and valued by my father.

The Importance of Fathers

A father’s lessons are gifts that last a lifetime.
John Ryan

Nothing could get me if I curled up on my father’s lap. All about him was safe.
Naomi Mitchison

With the father’s involvement the child is more likely to have a sense of humor, to develop a sort of inner excitement, to believe in himself or herself, to be more motivated to learn.
Dr. T. Berry Brazelton

For many little girls, life with Father is a dress rehearsal for love and marriage.
David Jeremiah

How fathers and sons relate to each other is really how many things are decided within the family – the respect that is given to women, the sense of responsibility that develops in the boys, the amount of love and caring and genuine sharing that can be expressed within the family structure. For their sons, fathers are often a blueprint for living.
