Paein – Bad Fathers

1 Valentine Morgenstern

The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare

Oh boy, is he a bad father! Well, he’s a pretty bad man too. How much is common knowledge? How much is spoilers? Don’t take any parenting tips from this man…

2 Lord Alan of Trebond

The Song of The Lioness Quartet by Tamora Pierce

His wife died in child birth and he never paid much attention to his children after that. of course, it’s because he didn’t that Alanna donned trousers and went off to the palace to learn how to wield a sword and Thom donned skirts and went off to learn how to wield his magic…so it’s not all bad.

3 Mr Rook

Jackaby by William Ritter

He denied his daughter her dreams and told her to find a husband, so she went on an adventure instead.

4 Raja Ramchandra

The Star Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

He had a plan for his daughter, not a very nice plan. Still, she gets the last laugh.

5 Amani’s Father

Rebel of the Sands/ Traitor to the Throne by Alwyn Hamilton

I mean her real father, not her step-father, though he sounds fantastic too….
I should probably count ALL the Demji’s fathers to be honest. They mark them as Demji and leave them unprotected in a hostile world. Nice move dad.

Ms4Tune – Good Fathers

(Sorry for the half filled original post – hopefully this has saved properly this time!)

6 Amos Diggory

The Goblet of Fire by J K Rowling

A good father in my books because he was really supportive of Cedric. He was very proud and always there to cheer him on.

7 Maddox

The Darkest Night by Gena Showalter

Maddox didn’t want to be a father but when he became one he was protective and loving. There’s always something so attractive about a man who’s fierce and moody that somehow shows a softer side.

8 Bob Cratchit

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

What a father! Bob Cratchit worked long hours and with a really grumpy and impossible man just to make sure his children had food to eat. He was devastated that he couldn’t make everything better for Tiny Tim but he always put a smile on his face so as not to waste a single moment with Tiny Tim, being sad.

9 Eli

Nowhere But Here by Katie McGarry

 Eli seems like an odd choice if you haven’t actually read this book because his daughter, Emily, grows up without him in her life. She thinks he’s a thug and wants nothing to do with him but actually Eli is an amazing dad. He let her and her mother go because it was the safest option for them but he counted the years that they were apart in a really cool way! And I think that should count for something.

10 Nathan and Andy

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

 I loved that Lola and the Boy Next Door had a same sex parental team in it. Nathan and Andy supported Lola’s life choices, never judged her for her eccentric fashion ideas and were fiercely protective of her. I loved the way they bounced off each other and how they worked as a team.

    I don’t think anybody can disagree with you that Valentine was an absolutely TERRIBLE father! I’m happy to see that Nathan and Andy made your list of good fathers – they were fantastic and I loved reading about them. 100% agree with you that they were such a perfect father team – I’ll admit I was a little jealous that they weren’t my dads, haha! Nice list!
