Pozycja ojca we współczesnej rodzinie
Father’s position in the contemporary family
Languages of publication
A father’s presence is important and necessary, and almost impossible to replace in the upbringing process. The father gives his child such stimuli and patterns in his social and moral development which his mother is not able to offer him. In connection with functioning in various social groups every human being fulfils definite social roles. The roles of parents and children belong to such roles. However, they are not something stable and have undergone many transformations over the centuries. The father’s role is unique. First of all, he is supposed to be a tutor. His task is, similarly to the biological mother who gives birth to her child, to “give birth” to him as a new creature by upbringing. A father’s role is to create an atmosphere of safety in the family, and participate in all aspects of the family life.
