Sunday, June 15, 2014, is Father’s day in the United States.
Mother’s Day and Father’s Day were not always national holidays in the United States. During the 20th century, Father’s Day became an official holiday after Mother’s Day, celebrating parenthood. You do not have to be a child’s biological father to celebrate this day. Adoption, foster care, and surrogacy make this holiday a little complicated. I’m sure Hallmark is hard at work creating tasteful cards suitable for unique circumstances.
Parenthood is not always easy. Working through different stages of a child’s life is challenging. This is evident in many family sitcoms. In a way, these shows give fathers a template on how to deal with different situations. This is why we are honoring TV dads.
