Fathers Day For Grandfathers
Fathers Day is not just for your very own father, but it is also for
granddads too. These days, a simple pair of socks or a new tie just
doesn't cut it, with more and more of the older generation becoming
more and more tech-savvy, why not get your grandfather something they
will truly enjoy.
Fathers And Sons
One of the issues for boys as they pass from childhood into manhood is the need for a strong role models.
Today, with so many relationship breakdowns and longer working
hours, fathers can easily become shadow figures. Boys without strong
male influence will, inevitably, find their own role models to follow.
It could be a pop-star, a footballer, Homer Simpson, Pete from Big
Brother, or the guy who runs the local gang.
Planning a First Fathers Day
Perhaps the most special of all Father's Days is the very first. This
is the first day a dad really feels like he is being recognized for the
accomplishment of fatherhood. Up until this point, these
accomplishments have probably consisted of lots of diaper changing,
feeding and entertaining of his infant child. Baby care is fraught with
late nights, lots of messes and plenty of chaos. Therefore, when the
first Fathers Day rolls around give your man something to show him what
a great new dad he is.

Buying Dad ties, power tools, ball game tickets, and other gifts for

more sentimental ideas, though writing on a poem on a card attached to
a gift goes over pretty well too.|

their own poems as well. Just start with "Roses are red, Violets are
blue," and have them finish the rest. Even the grouchiest of dads can't
resist a young child reading an ode to them.

Fathers Day And It's Origin
The third Sunday in June is celebrated as the father's day. This day
commemorates all the men who are great dads and also those men who play
a father like role for other people. The non traditional family

figures be it an elder brother or a brother in-law etc are celebrated
on this day. The first Father's Day was celebrated in Spokane,
Washington, in June 1910 through the efforts of a woman Sonora Dodd in
United States who felt that just like the mothers the fathers too
played important roles in the lives of their children.
