    The Italian philosopher Umberto Galimberti claims that the emotional education today is left to coincidence and that all the research and surveys agree that the contemporary generation has more emotional difficulties as the early ones. What role have fathers in this? Is the emotional education their responsibility, too? The connection between a father and his role on child's emotional development is relatively unknown area. There is more and more literature, which aims to show the importance of the role a father has in child's life. There is also more and more literature on the emotions and its meaning. But it is more difficult to find literature, which would connect and research the above-mentioned themes. Through the empirical part, where we get to know life stories of four young adults, we try to logically connect those themes. Every story shows in its own way that the presence of the figure of father is important in a life of an individual. In this survey the thesis is confirmed that it is more important, of what kind the presence is and what role a father engages with the family, than the presence itself. An important conclusion is also that father's acts and decisions leave an indelible trace in child's emotional world, too. His recognition, acceptation and engagement with child's emotions is an important bonus to child's own emotional life.
