What Makes an Everlasting Father-Son Relationship
Fathers are usually seen as a hero in children's vision, especially the son who dreams to grow up and be just like him because he is the first hand raw model in his life. What makes and maintains a father-son relationship special always; you will be surprised, as it is only the little things. Most sons dream to grow up and be a 'man' exactly like their father because he inspires power, wisdom and always seems to have a solution for every problem but when if comes to his children, especially the son, do all fathers behave adequately. First and foremost a father-son relationship is built on respect for one another for what they are without trying to make your son in what you want him to be.
Even though children want to be like their parents when young, as they grow up they start to realize that their interests are somewhere else and thus, they need to change course in order to become someone in their lives too just like their fathers; at such times a father-son relationship is important, as the father must support and give the son proper advice as what it will be best for the son and not what he would like his son to do.
Many fathers want their sons to achieve what they could not or they want to take over the family business or they want their sons to take keen interest in their profession, which they may if they have personal inclinations and interest in that field and never by force. Understanding your son for what he and accepting him for that is what will bond the father-son relationship and your son will work hard to make you proud of him.
The Close Bond of Father and Son
The father-son relationship is a bond like no other; each one seeking the same things in the other and they are, love, respect, approval, support in everything they do and last but not least the fact that you are proud of your father or son for just what he is, that is all one wants from another in their own way.
Being there for your son is all that he can hope for with an objective advice and if he fails, which he will at times, as we all do, be there again not to tell him I told you so but to offer a shoulder to lean on and to ensure him that there will be other opportunities soon. Parents' love is unconditional and selfless; always there for their kids, whether you did something right or wrong and that is what makes the father-son relationship strong and eternal.
