Science shows a good deed will go a long way!
Show Dad what he means to you!
According to research, dads often get the short end of the stick when it comes to being recognized on their day. In fact one recent survey found that if Mother’s Day and Father’s Day were celebrated on the same day, 78% of adult children would acknowledge Mom over Dad.
The people who were surveyed gave a variety of reasons for choosing Mom. Perhaps one reason Mom gets more attention is that she had an official holiday proclaimed 58 years earlier than Dad. Before you get too upset with those people who don’t seem to find fathers as important, consider that early attempts to establish a day honoring men were belittled by those very honorees.According to one historian, men “scoffed at the holiday’s sentimental attempts to domesticate manliness with flowers and gift-giving.”
