Abstract - Being a father poses a great deal of responsibility and opportunity. This study
explored the patriarchal understanding of their role in the language development of their
children. There were ten (10) fathers aged between 25-42 years old with children, between 23 years old of age who participated in the study. A phenomenological approach was
performed with guided questions as instrument during the interview process was utilized.
Data collected from interviews yielded one major domain: the role of fathers in language
development of their children. The roles that were identified from the interviews were
responsibility, appreciation, quality time, guidance, and recreation. It was also revealed that
being involved with their young children means that they can help them build strong
relationships during childhood and later in life and the father-child bond are more likely to
last into the child’s adulthood. It was also revealed that fathers who are emotionally involved
in their children have better social skills which means they are more able to have positive
relationships with other children and are likely to behave less aggressively.
