You know the very word brings tears to my eyes. Father and mother are such out of this world concepts In my opinion, and for me personally, after giving birth to my little darling, they even mean more whenever you want to express your inner love...

...about them, words truly fail you, besides that there' s something special about fathers that even makes it harder for me to talk about." Everyday my papa would work to help to make ends meet( MUSIC) Indeed the unconditional love and support I received at home from my childhood was truly exemplary, the Jasmine in our backyard and its aroma with which my father made love with every morning and when he woke up, he put it next or bed. so mesmerizing when I think, maybe now that I' m a parent I ' m more mindful of what I experienced in my early years and in this age and year of my life, I figure this out more than ever before. I vividly remember my father' s passion and enthusiasm when I embark on the university, when I got married, when I graduated and when I became mother. even more than me, his tears of joy for every tiny achievement of me in life, his presence and support in every second of my life, his sympathy and consultation for any of my decisions in life. his kind worries about me, the emotional moments we had together. every time he hugs...

...me, kisses me his love towards me, and how pure were all of them. Looking back on those days, I can recall his kind eyes, although I didn' t pay that much attention when I was younger, it was full of love, affection, peace, commitment and support. I know I' m not a perfect person and will never become. yet, I feel strong stability in my personality, beliefs and behaviors, and in my view this is a very brilliant asset in life. and I really owe many thanks for this stable of bringing to my father. now that I' m of the opinion the children reinvent their childhood atmosphere in their older days, I really investigate every single trait or for father to learn How should I behave with my children. How should I inflame their strength and let them burst into flames. So, I decided to address the importance of parent' s role, specially farther, in the future of children in shaping their personality in this episode. Well, actually, my father has an impressive and penetrating utterance. He writes wonderful notes and poetry throughout his life, and for us and all those around us, His words are always sweet and pleasant, and I thought I can never transmit his genuine feeling and belief in my own words and, as is almost always worried about us one totally all the humanity and pays close attention to child raising affairs, I proudly decided to invite him to be our first and foremost" MamaGuest" in this podcast and MamaGuest, as you might guess, is MamaNest' s exclusive term standing for her guests in this show. So...

...straight away and let' s get to our conversation, it' s a great pleasure for me to introduce our guest today, Doctor Rezaei. my dad he' s inexperienced and committed dentist and a motivated mountain climber. and most important of all, a kind and compassionate five time dad who is going to talk to us all about the fathership and its place in kids Future. As a final point, I should say that, unfortunately, I didn' t have the chance to interview my dad in person, as we are living in different cities, and how much I miss my parents by the way. So, we' re going to have a phone interview, and because of that, I apologize for any sound or quality issues, and I' m so thankful for your understanding in advance. all right, Hello dad. hope you ' re doing great. Welcome to MamaNest podcast. It' s an honor for me to have you here, Dr Rezaei: Hi Daddy. Thanks for inviting me and hope you are doing well, I' m so excited to be your first MamaGuest. As you know, this podcast is aimed at all moms around the world and we try to share our knowledge and wisdom to empower ourselves and what knowledge is more valuable than seventy Eight years of experience Dad! as an introduction, would you please clarify the father' s role as a compliment to that of the mother? and let me put it like this: In your opinion, what combination of parents can provide the readiest environment for the Child' s growth and development? Dr Rezaei: I can summerize the answer to your question in this way: A father can work hard and play A...

...role in gaining the trust of the children and fostering a sense of responsibility in them. the role of father in child' s development is to be friend with them, to feel responsible for them, to increase their self confidence and to strengthen their perseverance in them, which can be very important for the child ' s Development. MamaNest: Okay, Dad. you were always a role medal for all of us for having a positive attitude and strong determination. You established a non profit mountaineering club for more than I think twenty five years, if I' m not wrong, and you have been working in various social and professional associations for as long as we remember. and never complain about its difficulties. Although I myself witnessed lots of ups and downs in your path, have you ever felt tired? and basically I want to know how can we inject this perpetual positive mindset to our kids lives and keep their sprits up when times are tough? Dr Rezaei: Before choosing a model, I think one must have self confidence, a clear vision and a positive attitude to be successful In all fields of life, we must be homage to our family and society in any situation. we were made to serve at all. sometimes even without expectations. If we try with this vision and this way of thinking, surely in all fields our children can grow and nurture, because they see action, because they don' t see duality. MamaNest: Well, how do you think a father can build confidence and self esteem in his child to be successful in communication and social interactions? To be honest, if you have a belief, but you don' t act on it, this doesn' t affect...

...the child and the family unless you implement it. What the man believes in, should be shown in his actions, and so when the parents behaved with confidence, the children will automatically learn about that. MamaNest: Okay Dad. Thank you and for the next question, I want to know that the nest you created for our family with mom was full of love, peace and support. What special advice do you have for young mothers and fathers like me to help them provide this nest in their family too? Dr Rezaei: Yes, Creating a house full of love and peace requires taking responsibility for the family. Creating a friendly environment plays a big role in this issue. You may have some limitations in the past, but this should not be the justification. We should not bring the deprivation of our childhood or what We remember from the past According to the circumstances of that time, we should then bring it with a negative mind in life for our children. It is very effective that we can go beyond the negative experiences we had, and come to present the experiences with a positivity and create a nest in our family, our society, so that the child grows up in this nest full of happiness. MamaNest: You always believe that the mountain is a symbol of steadfastness and the climber is a symbol of hard work and endurance. What can we do so that, at a time when the culture of filial piety is voting and children often get what they want quickly, This value of hard work, determination, and effort is not lost? Dr Rezaei: children are exactly like mirror. An action that children see in their parent' s behavior, especially the parent' s sense of...

...responsibility, can convert them to a person with a sense of responsibility, a person who strives, a person who posses positivity, and their self confidence improves. MamaNest: well Dad. you' ve been studying and learning Since I can remember. your read books, you took specialized courses and you never felt that Maybe it was enough and you should not learn any more, and this is still going on. How much do you find this sense of dynamism necessary for parents and what effects does it have on children in your opinion? Dr Rezaei: in the words of deceased professor Hessabi, at the very end of his life when he was searching for the answer to a scientific question, give people around him, ask that: was the point of knowing this answer, When you know that you are about to die any minute? And professor replied that it is better to know And die than dying without knowing the answer. MamaNest: All right DAD. Now, let' s talk about the notes, you wrote daily, weekly, monthly, and even Annually, I think. and you used to plan for each of your seconds Dad. When you started doing this, you didn' t have any children, I think. and it was about fifty years ago, and at that time there was no place at all to teach planning and learning this concepts. So how did you do it without being asked? And what do you think you have achieved all these years with planning? and basically what effect to our parental goals and planning have on our children' s future In your opinion? Dr Rezaei: Yes I believe that one should have a plan until the last seconds of his...

...life. In all years of my life, the first sentence of my daily notes begins, with the name of God many inventions and innovations, start with practical, an experiment of thinking. I the impact of planning in life in all areas can give the person hope for the future. In This way there have been trial and error, but the results have been good experiences. When someone has a plan, he hopes to live tomorrow and the day after tomorrow and other month and years. and his life would be successful and it will progress, day by day. That is why I believe that planning is useful in all areas, even in the last moments of your life. Okay Dad. I always remember your special attention to your health, regular exercise, your medical checkups and taking care of your nutrition. Well, some of the parents think that paying attention to themselves is a mistake and it' s a neglection of caring for their child. What do you think about this? Dr Rezaei : Ya, I' ve always been with friends, who were members of our Mountaineering club. and I felt that some people had forgotten that they exist. But No! this is not the case. each person must first be attention to his own health, because this is not only for himself but also for those around him. we' re responsibility for our family and our community, and you should consider that healthy mind is in healthy body and if a person is healthy, he can be useful for himself, his family and his community. Of course, this requires self confidence, self esteem, and especially perseverance. if you choose this sport with thought and positivity and care about your...

...health and your family, you will do it continuously. it means that you don' t jump from branch to branch. Beside that we are responsible even to God for maintaining our body. it means that our body is a trust from God to us. and as a result, we should pay attention to it. the rest of my stuff, goes back to planning. This means that if you have a good plan, you can eat on time, exercise and time and continue it. and this has many benefits, this can play a big role in Shaping the personality of family and children, MamaNest: Okay and finally the last question: Please answer with four words: If you had the opportunity to choose the four main traits that make up your child' s personality, what would those four be? Dr Rezaei: Self confidence, Self esteem perseverance, and sense of responsibility. This traits should be instilled and taught to the child from childhood. MamaNest: Well, awesome. thanks for joining the podcast today Dad, and I enjoyed talking to you as always, on my own behalf and and on behalf of all of us, I want to say happy father' s Day to you.
