Fathers, you are the head of your family and you may need to set boundaries for your family. This does not mean that you have the right to boss everyone around. Being the head of a family is about being a leader not a dictator. Children instinctly look to their father for direction and instruction, which sometimes means discipline. If a father is a good and just person and treats everyone with respect, then his children will learn more when he says you must show respect to each person you meet. Remember fathers, words without the deeds to back them up are empty words.
