The father’s presence is important in a family’s life. Through his presence his children experience in this world the Heavenly Father’s love, attention and care. How can they imagine that God hears their prayer if their own parent pays no attention to them? How can they believe in God's mercy, and attention to the very hairs on their head, if the parent is only preoccupied by material things, paying no attention to the child’s spiritual needs, feelings, everyday problems and fears?
