As I said he was a father first, he taught me no matter what happen that family always came first because you cannot always trust them but they would be there for you if you needed them. He also taught me to respect your wife because things will get tough and there will be rough patches but she is the mother to your children and you will always love her for her and her flaws. He also taught me that
What I learned and understood about my father through conversations with my older siblings was about the impact of the loss of my grandfather (my father’s father) at an early age, heavy responsibilities taken on at an early age (hardship of the Depression era) to help support his mother and younger siblings. This led him to a strong sense of responsibility and a deep faith. But it all made him seem emotionally unavailable. The hard times for black families dealing with racial discrimination and the horrors of Jim Crow led to strictness that he, in all likelihood, felt was necessary for the survival of his children. There simply was no place for lighthearted fun. This greater understanding led to a stronger connection with my father, and an appreciation for such things as his devotion to having taken care of his family, his integrity, compassion for those less fortunate than himself, and the commitment as a deacon and Sunday school teacher.
Growing up I was always attached to my mom. My mom was my rock, as moms usually are, and I couldn’t stand to be left without her. I would cry whenever she left me with my dad and brother, even if it was for the slightest bit of time. My dad worked full time at a big corporation, and my mom was a stay-at-home mom, which may explain why I was so used to her being around. When I got to about the middle school age, my bond with my dad began to develop; I began to enjoy my dad’s attention whenever I could and I appreciated being around him more.
There are many times when a person comes into your life and changes it for the better. I was happened to be blessed to be born with that person that changed my life, my dad. He has always been there and guided me in the correct way. Just like in Sedaris “Me Talk Pretty One Day”, how something negative leads to a good outcome, my negative event resulted on how dads’ actions impacted my life in such a significant way. (635). My dad became a great example for me to look up to, by showing me how dependable, adaptive, and hardworking he truly is. My dad gave me the ambition, to continue my education, and become a dependable mother for my daughters and family.
Every day he also helps me with each material or concept that I would need for school and anything else. Each night, despite working all day, he still helps me to study and with all of my homework. Even though this might not seem comparable to a substantial deal, to me it is. He also teaches me about subjects that I have an interest such as chemistry and computer programming. In addition to all of this he also helps me learn by also helping to explain further the concepts of my school work. He also attempts to educate me on topics that he believes would be useful to me throughout my life. My father also attempts to teach me a wide spectrum of topics so that I can understand everything in an improved manner. And he does all of these to help me later in my life so that I can succeed.
Every Father plays a symbolic role in another child’s life, he can always be there for you and provide you with what you need and sometimes what you want. A father can be there for you to teach you the rights and the wrongs in life, even though sometimes you
James Baldwin once said, “If the relationship of father to son could really be reduced to biology, the whole earth would blaze with the glory of fathers and sons”. A father has a responsibility to teach his son how to live morally and face the hardships of life. However, the
He showed me that chivalry can be used in everyday activities, that it isn’t just found in courage and honor. It is also in keeping a door open for a woman. It is imbedded in paying for a woman’s check, helping your infant grandson up a flight of stairs, it is in the basic things we do that make us civilized human. I do believe that what he taught me on this matter made me into more of a gentleman, too. He was my role model who showed me how to treat others, and how to be a good man. I would never be where I was now without the almost fatherly affection he showed. He was always right next to me during our fishing trips to teach me something new. Along with this, he showed me my first real view of humor. Not of some obscure and strange youtube video that everybody laughs at because it has profanity and informal topics, I mean honest humor. Something that is rare today. He was also my best male role model, as I have no father in my household, and I would rather learn from a gentleman than my brother. I learned so much from him, and I only wish I could have known him for a longer period of time. But the most important life lesson he taught me was grit. He showed me the little part of every person that makes them say no to giving up, that makes them go through with a challenge even when it seems hopeless. He showed me that in any fight, you can never give up. He always told me to work my
FAMILY My family has been nothing but supportive, loving, and caring. They taught me the value of love from a young age. My parents taught me right from wrong, and my sister taught me to hold my temper. These three people are my mentors, my family, and my best friends.
Growing up, we are all surrounded by people who shape our future. They shape your thoughts, actions and even interests. In my life, my dad has influenced that the most. When someone asks me to describe my dad, I find it one of the hardest things to do, but the least I can say is that he is an intelligent, sacrificing man. When I was seven years old, my family moved here to the U.S. My father had sacrificed by leaving the country in which he spoke its language, work that he worked years on building, and the place where he grew up and shared his memories. All that was for my bother and myself, and on top of that my father never failed to remain a refuge to me. I can’t help but remember this one day, where I came home from school, because I was hardly able to make friends. He came inside my room, sat beside me on the bed, and took me in his warm, comforting arms. Between every tear and the other I was fighting to catch my breath, and in doing that, I was able to smell his Bond No. 9, reminding me that he was right there. Right there to wipe away any worry I had within me. He always knows exactly how to make things right, and helped me do what was in the best interest for me. In the tragic play Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, we see quite an interesting father: Lord Capulet. The conflicting personality of Lord Capulet progresses throughout the book. Lord Capulet is considered a democratic tender father, but is flawed with being submissive to the society around him,
There is not many people in life that will have such an impact that will directly change the course of how one spends their time, how one handles problems, and teaches someone what is truly important in life. My grandfather, or as I called him, “Pap” was one of the only people who always believed in me and whatever I wanted to accomplish with my life. My Pap was very inspirational in my life because he taught me through his good example that obstacles can harm but never stop so long as you keep fighting for what is desired. He taught me about resolution, and to never give up no matter the odds and instilled confidence in me that I can do anything so long as I am willing to work for it. He always stressed to me that materialistic things in life do not matter, as long as the family and friends are there for support and love. He directly influenced the way I spend my time and what I enjoy to do.
Stoic, tenacity, and determination became an integral part of me early in life, without knowing what those qualities truly stand for. Besides, I was also favored to have had wonderful parents who not only were godly, but great examples of good parenting. My parents were such a great influence that they daily taught their children morals, self respect, honesty, kindness and
My father is someone who has experienced things many people these days have not. When he was growing up his step father Wes was very hard on him and his sibling. He would make them work for everything and was abusive. Finally, my Grandmother left him and took the kids with her, my dad and his three sisters. They traveled all over the country starting in California and just moving around. He was bullied at most of the schools he attended but always stood his ground. He eventually moved to Dubuque and went to Hempstead high school where he met my mom and stayed here for the rest of his life.
Qualitative research is a type of scientific research consisting of an investigation that seeks answers to a question. The questions that concern my belief and reasons for it, will be part of the research. I will explore my personal history, perspectives, and experiences. This research will require some critical
In conclusion, I am daddy's little girl and proud of that. I could not of asked for a better father. My dad has always been there for me and I wil always be there for him. I respect my father because he deserves to be. He stayed and was a father and never took the easy way out like in the world today most fathers do. I believe my father is the best at everything he does. He has been through so much in his life and still is a happy wonderful man; I would have been sad and depressed if I had to go through hald as much as my father. Dad is strong and looks ahead not behind, he always say the past is the past "always
