Hero Fathers

June 16th, 2011

Let’s be real. No dad out there has ever put on a mask and cape, then jumped out of a building to fight costumed villains. But dads across America do heroic deeds every day.

Sure, there are fathers who fight crime, put out fires and save lives. Those men are heroes. But so are the regular dads. The men who work hard, spend time with their families and do whatever it takes to be a good parent.

When Dads Sacrifice

Most fathers make sacrifices all the time. And most kids probably never know. Every father goes through a major transformation when his kids arrive. But it takes a lot to become a hero dad.

They give up their time. Put their own wants and needs on hold. Hero fathers drastically change their lives to take care of their children. Kids may never understand how much their parents are sacrificing for them. A hero father does whatever it takes to give his children a good life, and never complains about his hardships. Because the happiness of his children is more important than his own.

What Makes A Father A Hero

Fathers become heroes in many ways. By working harder than ever to provide for their families. By taking a little extra time for the kids, even when they are weary. By ensuring that the mothers are always appreciated and respected.

As life progresses, fathers have many chances to be heroes. It starts when the child is born. Fathers can work heroically to ensure the household is well prepared for a newborn. When the kids are old enough to go to school, dads have unlimited opportunities at heroism. Helping them with their studies, driving the kids to and from extracurricular activities, giving them space when it’s just not cool to be seen with their parents.

Later in life, dads can continue to be heroes. A dad can walk his baby girl down the aisle, and let go just a little as she marries the man of her dreams. Fathers can be there to support their kids as they embark on new careers, sometimes succeeding and sometimes failing. And dads can continue to be there for his children throughout life.

So what makes a father a hero? Many things. But at its most basic form, just the willingness to be there for his kids, the ability to put his children’s needs before his own and the motivation to always provide guidance, support and love.
