Some children grow up with fathers who are actively and positively involved in their lives. These fathers love their children, protect them, praise them, spend quality time with them, play with them, teach them, and help them in dealing the life struggles.
On the other hand, some unfortunate children grow up without the compassionate love and care of their father because of their early and untimely death.
