i walk like you ...


Do DADs make a great parent?

Many of us, dedicate our lives to our mother.. I have seen many on stage thank their Mother, in the crowd or sometimes in the heaven, for their achievements.

A child(daughter/son) wants to talk, walk like his father. A Mother teaches us how to talk and walk ... She tries hard but the child always wants to immitate his /her father.

mothers are like buddies, easy to talk to, approach or walk with. Dads on the other hand always have this air of authority and command around them. As human beings it is natural to be drawn towards the thing that has these qualities. Mom's are soft and warm, a place were you rush to when hurt. Dad's are strong and sturdy a place you wanna be when up and about. Right? Now you tell me.

i dunno...i think boys are more attached to their moms and girls to their dads. so if it a woman goes on stage to accept an oscar or something, i'm sure she'll be thanking her dad.

thanks GHB... i agree to ur view about attachments...i am attached to my dad, but if in a situation ...i will thank MY MOTHER first...(All Mothers deserve it first)

moms first always, I agree that my mom has played a bigger role in moulding me into who I am today.

one tends to look up to what one preceives as 'stronger'. as a kid, its easy to look upto ur father coz he big and strong. as we grow older, we realise that strength has various forms. most of the forms of strength, lie in a mother.

My mom is one of my best friends in the world. By the same token, I wish everyone had a father as giving as I do--even though we butt heads a lot of the time.

I told your parrot joke to my family while driving in the car yesterday. My mom and dad LOVED the joke. Thanks for the laugh!!

@bhakti

you are always welcome my friend

i am happy, (through a joke) that for some moments i was with you and your dear parents in the car.
and on an occasion like "the laugh", cannot ask for more.

laughter is the only medicine, as far as, i know.

Interesting conversation... passer_by.. We all are always thinking and fighting on who should get the credit to groom the child.. but have we ever thought of the individual thinking of that child?

What he/she really wants to do with his/her life? We try to impose our identity on that child by setting goals for him/her... that we think is right for the child.. ignoring completely his/her feelings.

How many of us really respect the independent thinking of that child honestly?

Now a days we are loosing that child's important faculties like his thinking power, rationalizing power, expressing power by telling him what is right or wrong....

From the bottom of my heart I appeal to ALL the parents to take time and listen to what he / she has to say...
