Well, I think in a healthy family they should be equal. I believe a father's influence is just as important as a mother's is. I know that if not for my husband I may have raised two mamas boys - (that term isn't necessarily a negative, but I'm using it as one). He and I had a good balance together. He taught them things I could not have done, he let them do things I would not have let them do but they need to do! I was over protective, he was the more lenient parent and they needed that from him. He was strict when need be and we worked together as a team, but we brought different things to the table if that makes sense.

As far as my own upbringing I would say my mom, as my dad was super critical and had me a basket case by age 9. But, that's not "dads," in general. That just my dad. I don't really think this question can be answered in general terms, rather our own experiences in our own families. (maybe that's what you are asking?)

Well either works BG. It's a good thread. We can each of us personalize it. I mean answer how we personally interpret the question.

Well l like any input into any thread and to have personal experiences is good l liked your post because it showed that men or fathers do put a lot of values into a child's up bringing l wish l had the experience with my own dad but he would rather show my brother's the way of things he could have taught me more on a male level but at least l had one parent to be taught from being the rights and,wrongs of life
