In Elizabeth Jennings' poem "Father to Son," the father is dissatisfied with his son since he is unlike his father in most ways and has his own views and interests, despite having been raised in the atmosphere and with the ideals that the father supplied. The father feels that his son should share these same beliefs and values but doesn't; instead, he follows different paths and ends up like himself in trouble and despair.
The father's main complaint against his son is that he isn't like him in spirit or nature. He believes that if his son were more like himself, then he would not have any problems or complaints about him.
The fact that the son doesn't think or act like his father makes him unhappy because he wants to be like his father and fulfill his desires, but he knows that this cannot happen unless he changes himself first. Therefore, he decides not to try and meet his father's needs by following in his footsteps but instead to pursue different options so that he can live a free life of his own.
However, even though he wants to please his father, he cannot do so because it goes against his nature. It is also worth mentioning that although the father is alive and well in the end, he is still unhappy because there is no hope for him to change for the better.
The father is dissatisfied with his son since the two do not interact. They are like strangers to one other since they do not understand each other. Despite living under the same roof, they have nothing in common. As a result, the father is extremely distressed. He wishes his son would go away so that he could be with him but this doesn't seem likely.
Father's problem is that he is lonely. His need for love and affection is very high but he is unable to give it out himself due to lack of knowledge about how to make his son happy. This makes him seek help from others which only adds to his misery.
Have you ever felt disappointed with someone close to you? If so, you know how painful it can be. The same thing applies to your father because he feels terrible when he fails to live up to your expectations. Even though you may not say a word, he knows what you want and he tries his best to meet those needs.
But sometimes he fails to deliver because he does not know how. For example, if you ask your father to buy you an iPhone but he cannot afford it, then you will feel sad when he sends you a gift card instead. In this case, your father tried to please you by giving you something else but still, he failed to meet your need for an iPhone.
All dads are doomed to disappoint their sons, who must blame and eventually forgive their father for failing to live up to an ideal that was never meant to be met. To narrow the gap between them even more, the son can develop himself in ways his father never could, succeeding at something his father did not or could not achieve. This story is told of Aeschylus, the ancient Greek poet; his son Sporus (Latin for "son") may have been born from an affair with Athena, the goddess of wisdom.
As he grew up, Sporus showed no interest in politics or war, but rather in philosophy and science. His father hoped he would follow in his footsteps and become a politician, but Sporus wanted to be a scientist like Pythagoras or Euclid. However, despite his father's efforts, Sporus also failed to fulfill his dreams as he died young before reaching maturity. Thus, both father and son were disappointed with what had been achieved.
In conclusion, fathers are a disappointment to their sons because they want their sons to be happy and successful like them, but this will never be the case; instead, their sons will go on to do great things while they remain constant and stable, which many people cannot accept.
The parent is incapable of adapting to new conditions. He is worried by the fact that his son is emotionless. He wants to mend their connection, but it appears that his son is not making any efforts to do so.
The problem lies in the fact that the father cannot understand how his son could have changed like this after all they had shared together. He feels guilty for having caused the change by fighting with him recently. He needs to know what has happened to his son so he can make up for it.
The father has two problems: the first one is that he is incapable of understanding how his son could be angry with him when they used to get along so well; the second one is that he does not know where his son has gone.
They have been living apart for several months now, and the father doesn't know where his son has gone. Maybe he moved out? But where would he go? It doesn't sound like he has a job or anything like that. This makes the father very sad because he thinks that his son has abandoned him. Actually, his son has just found a new place to live but the old one was too small for both of them. So the father should try to accept this situation instead of keeping searching for him everywhere.
Fathers, like mothers, play an important role in a child's emotional development. Children turn to their dads to establish and enforce ground rules. They also turn to their fathers to create a sense of physical and emotional stability. Dads who are available and responsive to their children feel like home to them.
The relationship between a father and his son or daughter is called paternal love. Paternal love is very special because it can only be felt by parents towards their children. The love fathers have for their sons and daughters is beautiful and it should be cherished by everyone that knows them.
However, not all fathers show their love for their children by being available for them or by responding to them when they need them. Some fathers may provide material things such as food, shelter, and education but not experience parental love. This is often the case with absentee fathers. Other fathers may work long hours and not have much time with their children. This is called economic deprivation. When a father does not have enough money to provide for his family, he is said to suffer from poverty. Many poor fathers simply give up on trying to change their situation or seek employment that pays well so they can stop working and spend more time with their kids.
Some children lack a positive male figure in their lives.
