It's from a poem by:
MY heart leaps up when I behold
A rainbow in the sky:
So was it when my life began,
So is it now I am a man,
So be it when I shall grow old
Or let me die!
The child is father of the man:
And I could wish my days to be
Bound each to each by natural piety
The phrase means that what we are when young gives shape and, in a sense, gives birth to what we are when grown.
No.It is a derivation from a like titled poem by Gerard Manley Hopkins, "The Child is Father to the Man," published 1 January 1923:The Child is father to the manThe Child is father to the man. How can he be? The words are wild.Suck any sense from that who can:'The child is father to the man.'No; what the poet did write ran,'The man is father to the child.''The child is father to the man!'How can he be? The words are wild.It is a misquoting of a line from the William Wordsworth poem, "My Heart Leaps Up When I Behold," written 26 March 1802:My Heart Leaps Up When I BeholdMy heart leaps up when I behold A rainbow in the sky;So was it when my life began;So is it now I am a man;So be it when I shall grow old,Or let me die!The Child is father of the Man ;And I could wish my days to beBound each to each by natural piety.
The cast of The Child is Father of the Man - 1979 includes: Nicolette McKenzie as Herself - Commentator
If a man and woman marries, have a child together and the mother dies, then the man becomes a widowed father.
the man she was living with was NOT the biological father, but he was under the assumption that he was and was supporting and raising the child as his own. what rights does he have
The man on the birth certificate.
For me, there are possible meanings: 1. Every man at first is a child, and his experiences from childhood make him a man, they shape him. 2. Every man becomes a true man when he has a family with a child. Care of the child makes him a man.
William Wordsworth in The Rainbow
poet William Wordsworth
The father would need to legally give up his rights to the child or the court would have to take them away in order for the new husband to adopt the child.
None. The biological father has lost all rights when the new father adopted the child.
Your marriage to someone who is not the father of the kids should have no effect on your right to child support from their father.
It's complicated, if a man was the presumed father - in other words if the man met all criteria of a father and was viewed as the child's father, then yes it would be possible for him to retain status of the legal father to the child and possibly have sole legal custody. If the child has two biological parents who have always been the acting / legal parents to the child, there would have to be extreme circumstances for the courts to terminate the parental rights to make the child eligible for adoption. If the man is wishing to adopt a child, yes single men are legally able to adopt.
This phrase is from a poem by William Wordsworth. The phrase "My heart leaps up when I behold a rainbow in the sky: So was it when my life began. The Child is father of the Man".
Yes, a gay man can father a child with a woman. It happens all the time, especially in countries where gay men must marry women.
If a father finds out he is the biological father of a child, he has as many rights to the child as the mother does. He can take the mother to court for custody or to set up a parenting plan.
both, one will care for the child, and if none do, then the other man is biological father
Can a man become a father? Yes. Can a man get pregnant and give birth to a child? No he can not.
The man, yes - he's the father! - his wife, no.
The poet laureate "William Wordsworth"
Not unless he is the father of your child.Not unless he is the father of your child.Not unless he is the father of your child.Not unless he is the father of your child.
If he is the biological father, yes. That is what counts. If the mother and this man knew he was not the father they have both committed fraud by having him signing the birth certificate. The child have a right to know who his parents are as well.
He could not father a child with an O blood type
From a poem by William Wordsworth "The child is father of the man" These means that by the age of 7 or so a child has developed physical characteristics (short or tall, fit or frail), personality traits (aggressive, loving), attitudes (hard working, slovenly) that will determine what he will be like as an adult. In that sense is the child father to himself as an adult.
the same way a straight man can be a father, by either fathering a child biologically, or adopting.
