Father’s Day may have got you thinking about the reasons why dads are superheroes. We shouldn’t really need a special day to be grateful to our dads though. In the words of Frenchie in Grease – “the only man a girl can depend on is her daddy”. If you don’t know the reasons why dads are superheroes, read on.
1 Dads Are Great Guides
One of the biggest reasons why dads are superheroes is that they are always there to guide you when you're in trouble. They tell you how to sail through tough times without hurting your self-respect and confidence. They are always around, like an invisible man, to protect you, and they really don't need to be soaked in gamma rays or bitten by a radioactive spider to have all those superpowers that help you to identify your real mission in life.
2 Dads Can Tell Stories
What dads can do may sometimes look simple, but in reality, it's something even superheroes dare not try. Dads don't mind reading you books, and it may not look a great task, but it definitely takes a real man to don't get tired of the same puppy board book because they know that's what makes their little ones happy. Forget about superheroes doing anything like that – they don't have that much of patience, and of course, they've got a world to save, so no spare time for them. No matter how busy dads are in the morning, they get back home and pull their kids in close for lullabies and stories – daddy style!
3 Dads Fit in All Roles
Dads don't need to wear the "Mask" to behave like someone they are not – they can be comedians when you feel sad and they can be a perfect source of motivation when you're down. They can be a great speaker or a great listener, depending upon the situation. It takes tons of patience to deal with a little chatterbox girl, and no ordinary superhero can handle that. Only a superhero dad can host his own version of 'Dancing with the Stars' in the living room or lay in a homemade mudpile, driving heavy trucks around – and with proper sound effects! A dad can be the Best Toy Evah, and no superhero can beat that.
4 Dads Can Transfer Their Powers to You
One of the biggest reasons dads are real superheroes is that they can pass on their powers and even give you wings. Superman can fly, has superhuman strength, has super-hearing, enjoys eidetic hearing, and comes with super vision, consisting of heat vision, X-ray vision, infrared vision, and microscopic vision. Can he give his powers to someone else? Dads can and they do it all the time. They tell you how to fly without wings, how to develop an understanding of things to see beyond the obvious, and how to develop power and perseverance to overcome all obstacles in your life. Whenever dads lift their kids in their arms, it feels like flying. Only dads can make you feel that way!
5 Dads for Shopping
Do you know a superhero with loads of cash to spend? One of many reasons dads are real superheroes is that you can always squeeze a few Benjamins out of them. Perhaps that's another reason why a dad is a daughter's first love.
6 Dads Are Made of Steel, Literally
While the powers of Superman are at a herculean level and he can fly, lift oilrigs, and battle other kryptonians, dads show their powers in different ways. Your dad is there when no Superman is going to come to your rescue. Think of all those mean girls or boys that tease you in school or college. Can Superman save you from them? Dads can!
7 Dads Can Deal with the Gross Side of Fatherhood
Okay, so you think superheroes can perform some daring stunts, but can they, in their sane mind, think of handling dirty diapers? Of course they cannot, especially considering they are so dumb and don't even know they should be wearing their underwear 'under' their pants. Only dads have the superpower that lets them get down and dirty – they can make their little one smile and even laugh while they pretend to gag. Only a real dad can handle such situations where a superhero would be reaching for a gas mask!
8 Dads Are Sacrificial
The mark of any true superhero is the willingness to make sacrifices for the good of others. Dads will sacrifice time, energy, and money to make sure you have the best life possible! Always putting their children' needs over their own proves that dads are real superheroes!
Dads are often the unsung heroes of the family, but they are no less important than moms. They provide love and support, often sacrificing their own needs for the benefit of their children. They work hard to provide for their families, often putting in extra hours or taking on extra jobs to make sure their children have the best life possible.
Dads also often take on the role of disciplinarian in the family, teaching their children right from wrong and instilling values that will serve them well in life. They also provide guidance and advice, helping their children make decisions and navigate the world.
Dads also provide emotional support, helping their children through difficult times and celebrating their successes. They are often the first to give a hug when their child is sad and the first to cheer when their child succeeds.
Dads are also great role models, teaching their children how to be kind, compassionate, and responsible. They show their children how to be strong and independent, and how to make the right choices.
In short, dads are real superheroes, sacrificing their own needs for the benefit of their children and providing invaluable love, support, and guidance. They are the unsung heroes of the family, and they deserve to be celebrated!
