Fathers help sons stand on their own two feet

Sometimes, fathers are not aware of their influence on their sons. If you are a father, your guidance can have a profound effect on many aspects of your son's life. In fact, your relationship with your son could alter the course of his growth into manhood.

As a father, you have the opportunity to be a role model for your son. Your presenceĀ in his life affords him the chance to observe how a man should behave. He can adapt your values and morals and see what it takes to be a responsible father himself. But if you are not around, it will be more difficult for him to learn these lessons.

You may also help bolster your son's self-esteem in ways that you don't suspect. If a boy believes his father will always be there for him, he will have a greater sense of security. There is evidence that teenage boys whose fathers are involved in their lives are less likely to be victimized. A teenage boy who trusts his father will act on his behalf is more likely to stand up to bullies.

Whether you know it or not, your son depends on you for emotional security and personal guidance. This means if you are sharing custody or have visitation rights with your son, it is imperative that the terms of the agreement be honored. And if you are in the process of getting divorced, you want to make sure that your parenting plan contains terms that provide you with the time needed to maintain your father-son bond.

A Texas family law attorney can act as your advocate if your son's other parent is interfering with visitation. An experienced attorney can also help you craft a parenting plan that best suits both you and your son's needs.
