The provider, the protector, the “foundation” of the home. He is one thing and many things, but to his children, he is father. Every child has a different kind of father: there is a strict one; there is a funny, loves-to-crack-corny-jokes one; there is one that falls in between.
And any kind of father would greatly appreciate feeling like the most important man on his special day, Father’s Day. So gather the whole fam for a day or two of bonding with dad.
