Happy Father's Day 2022: It is said that the mother-child relationship is the biggest in the world. The mother gives birth to the child and raises it. But a father plays an important role in shaping the child's future as well as making him civilized.
The role of the father in the life of the child is as much as that of the mother. Examples of father abandonment and devotion. Only the father protects the child from all the evils of society. Fathers themselves fight to meet the needs of their children. Guide them also into good behaviors and avoid displaying some profane ones.
