In the poem Going home to Mayo Winter 1949 by Paul Durcan the father and son go walking in the high grass Why does this image stand out Why is it so important to the poet?
Well, why it means so much to the poet we can't know for sure, because we are not him... but in the poem, it seems that he remembers the high grass because it was the setting where he actually got to communicate with his father. In the poem, the image stands out because it is near the end of the first stanza, the seeming culmination of all the things that we have been told to that point in the poem are focused in that moment... talking to his father in the tall grass. It also stands out because the second and final stanza is basically all about the regret that that moment is gone.

obviosly one thing that is important to billy is his dogs. god is important to him because whenever he is in trouble he asks god to help him. helping his father work is also important because when he got his dogs he was fine with still helping his father work even though his father tells him its ok. his family is important to him, he gave his candy to his sisters and the prize money…
When mother has full custody of a child what are the rights of the stepfather vs the natural father?
It is important for the father to be involved in the pregnancy because the mother can't feed, change, potty train, and teach him/her how to walk and talk. If a woman wanted to have a baby herself without a husband, she can but she would most likely regret it. I think the father is the second most important part of the baby's life. The baby's mom is the first important person
