Wake Up the Brilliance Inside You

Is a Father the same as a Dad?



"Any man can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a Dad." - Anne Geddes


I was baffled by an idea that a father is different than a dad. For me, both words are the same. I guess people wanted to make a distinction between the two words so as to make a point what a father or a dad ought to be.

Growing up, I have called my father a Dad not knowing that one day I will find out that I truly have a Dad and not a father. Searching through the internet, I found out that the difference in both words is the created social definition. A father is considered a biological term than a role or relationship. Therefore, in my opinion the words should not be interchangeably used as they are not basically the same thing. 

There is a saying: "Any man can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a Dad."  Which are you or which do you have in your life - a dad or a father?


To all the fathers and dads around the world, we wish you a Happy Father's & Dad's Day. Enjoy the video below as a gift to all of you.
