“If we look in the Qur’an there are many educational models that can be done by a father, like the stories of the prophets. But in fact, the mothers take most part to educate the children. In education cooperation is necessary so that children can growth optimal. The role of father and mother has the same importance in raising and educating children. Equal parenting from father and mother toward children will form positive behavior. “explained Mr. Sigit on the sidelines of his presentation.
Therefore, in this family affair a father should learn from Luqman, a young man who immortalized his name in the Qur’an. Luqman attitudes should be owned by every father in this world, in order to be a good father. The goal of course is not to show off the greatness, but for the sake of the family, especially the children’s future.
In addition, fathers have a role in forming the personality of the children. Parents are the first role models in the formation of the child’s personality, especially the father. Dad is a figure is proud of the children. Kids will surely tell his father figure to her friends.
Therefore, the father’s role is critical in shaping the person of a child. Moreover, the father is the leader in the family who is always treated great by their children.
