Father's Day 2019: 10 Most-Memorable Quotes On Fatherhood

Survey co-director Sarah Clark, University of MI, was quoted as saying, "Addressing a child's misbehaviour is one of the greatest challenges of parenting, and parents aren't always on the same page when it comes to expectations and consequences".

That could prove problematic for families, Clark said. Not far behind them were grandparents, who also had a lot of opinions when it came to what dads should be doing with their kids.

Even though it's 2019, traditional gender stereotypes ran strong through the survey with 11 per cent of the fathers saying that a teacher assumed they were not knowledgeable about their child's needs or behaviours and a further 12 per cent of dads reporting that they felt a doctor or nurse assumed they were not knowledgeable about their child's health.

A new study by C.S. Mott Children's Hospital shows how dads feel their parenting skills are being judged.

Fathers said they were shamed for their parenting styles, as per a survey. But in other cases, criticisms backfired.

For over a quarter of fathers polled, criticism made them feel less confident as a parent and 1 in 5 say it discourages them from being more involved in parenting. For most, the honor of being called "dad" lies on the shoulders of the one who filled the role of the father figure-whether that's a dad, a granddad, a mentor, or whatever.

Other topics of criticism related to a child's sleep (24 percent), appearance (23 percent), and safety (19 percent). As I held his hand and watched my father take his last breath, I felt pain so ferocious I was positive that I too was dying.

Aren't they hilarious? Well, jokes apart, this Father's Day keep your phones aside and give some quality time to your father.

That's definitely counterproductive, she noted.

In February this year, more than 700 fathers with children aged 13 and under were interviewed about their parenting experiences.

Why do some people believe fathers need their "helpful" advice? "When this occurs, minor differences in parenting style can cause conflict over the "best" way to parent", Clark said. It's a day to spend time with your dads and do his favourite things together.
