  Taking Father Time
No father in his office had ever taken off more time, and although Garcia was disappointed, he valued his job and decided to make do.
Studies show that the majority of fathers do want more time off from work to be with their families.
This leaves dads with little time to be equal partners in the parenting process -- a fact that experts say can be a loss for both father and child.

  Father Time - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In various New Year's Eve customs, Father Time's image is used as the personification of the previous year (or "the Old Year"), who "hands over" the duties of time to the Baby New Year (or "the New Year").
Sometimes, due to the relationship between death and aging, Father Time is associated with the Grim Reaper.
In the series, Father Time often explained various historical facts, and served as a narrator; he was also accompanied by various other characters, including Big Fat Baby, a humorous version of the Baby New Year.

 Father Time (Marvel Comics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Father Time is a superhero from the Golden Age of Comic Books who appeared in Captain America Comics #6 (September 1941), published by Timely Comics (later Marvel Comics).
He became Father Time to save his wrongfully accused father from the electric chair, but was only seconds too late to prevent his father's death.
Given the unique nature of the Elders of the Universe, either this Father Time was a different character than Larry Scott, or Larry Scott's origin was heavily retconned by establishing him as an Elder.

 Getting to be a Father, Full-Time Dads;Issue 1
In the movie, "Parenthood," the character Todd, soon to become a father himself, recounts some of the abuse and bitterness he was subjected to as a child.
Fathering is a subtle combination of wisdom, humor, and patience.
Fathering is knowing when to talk, when to walk, and when to rock- It is knowing how to hold and how to scold.

 NNCC Father's Care
These fathers may use physical punishment as a form of discipline, and they tend to be inconsistent and erratic in their childrearing techniques.
On one hand they want their father to be strong and powerful (in the sense of being self-confident and determined) but they may also be frightened at times by that power.
Fathers who expect to be constantly vigilant disciplinarians who show no tenderness create a climate of coldness that puts distance in their relationships.

 Time (II).   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Time II was born as a baby, just for the sake of traditional belief, but in the next jiffy, or tick, became a full grown replica of Time (I), only in an ice blue dress instead of a red-and-fl one.
Time does not have to follow any normal rules, from gravity all the way up to divinity, but she does any way just for the fun of it.
Time really "froze" once, actually, she was more trapped, and it nearly destroyed all of history and everything for that matter, but the trap was flawed, breaking and letting her free, and history was repaired by the same group that knows how to use time as a weapon.

 The Vanishing Father, Full-Time Dads;Issue 1
To understand today's major trend, picture a father who is absent from the home altogether: divorced or never married, having little or no steady contact with his children.
Consider, for example, a popular slogan that proceeded "new father." The phrase was "good family man" this compliment was once widely heard in our culture, bestowed as a badge of honor to those deserving it.
I suspect that most fathers today, induding those who act like new fathers, are not especially attracted to the phrase "new father," or to the ideal it represents.

 Old Father Time
Nonetheless, time is not wholly destructive, for the gift of time is the serenity and wisdom that are attainable only through the experiences of a long life.
A modern notion of the relationship of time with Saturn or Kronos is that the association may have originated due to the confusion created by similar-sounding words ("Kronos" and "Chronos").
Both of these modern figures...Father Time and the Grim Reaper...are sometimes accompanied by a crow and there is speculation that the word "Chronos" and the subsequent associated God may have actually been representative of this bird, which was symbolic of both fertility and death.

 The Importance of Father's Time
Finding the necessary time to spend with our children is, indeed, more and more difficult because of the ever-increasing demands of a competitive marketplace; but as society slips away into a moral state of numbness, our greatest trump card as fathers may just be ourselves.
Fathers tend to be more focused on 'doing practical, educational things rather than talking about doing things.' As they are more physical with their children than moms, dads play an important role in developing their children's motor skills and ethical limits in regard to physical interaction (Horn 37-39).
When fathers take an active role in their children's lives, it not only helps them to develop healthy friendships and achieve good grades, but it will play a major role in their success as adults.

 Outpost Gallifrey: Reviews
FATHER TIME marks another instant classic for Lance Parkin and a milestone for the enduring series.
Parts of Father Time ache with possibility, but what most reviewers of the book have shied away from is saying that the truly tantalising back cover blurb disappoints when you get to page 280 (page 281 is just so indulgent that it really should not be there).
"Father Time" is no exception, and it's no spoiler to say that the back cover mention of the Doctor's daughter made this the most anticipated novel of the year for me. And I wasn't disappointed.

 THE ORDER OF TIME - ARTICLE: MENTAL HEALTH AND THE TIMESYSTEM: THE ANALYTIC CONCLUSION
Honest is honest, we cannot strive to maintain the problem for the sake of the study, limit a materially favored and protected elite or block its growth, and leave the chaos, the risk and the spiritualization to the masses or to foreign people.
Together with the heroes of all times, also the times of this moment, I request you to cooperate in the line of your own study of time- and consciousness-phenomena and unite scientific psychology for the sake of this analytic conclusion and the thereto belonging proper action.
Time is matter in relation, a quality of matter and that reality must not unnecessarily be refuted.

 Father Time
There is no holiday for their field, there is no break and there is no respite, for their field is the field of preserving life, the measuring stick of time, and life, as they quickly discover, is always happening.
Through all of the big events of our lives, father time has stood there watching, doing what he does best, counting the minutes and seconds off as he always has.
For time is not our realm my friends, though it is a cruel master, impersonal to the core and careless to say the least.

 Plastic Surgery: Staring Down Father Time - Healthy Living: Living a healthy lifestyle for disease prevention on ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
The trend among many middle-aged adults is toward noninvasive procedures such as Botox, laser hair removal and soft-tissue fillers such as Restylane to smooth out wrinkles and plump up lips and other body parts showing their age.
But that might have more to do with time constraints than desires, said Dr. Laurie A. Casas, a spokeswoman for the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and an associate professor of surgery at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine.
While the less-invasive techniques require less down time, "people have to understand exactly what they are getting," Fleming said.

 Exercise and aging: Can you walk away from Father Time?
In terms of cardiac function, though, the toll of time was not as severe as the toll of inactivity; at 50, the men were far below their 20-year-old best, but they were not quite as feeble as when they emerged from three weeks of bed rest in 1966.
Like strength training, 20 minutes of dedicated time two or three times a week is ideal.
Give yourself enough time to recover from injuries and illness — and remember that recovery may take longer as you age.
