      Forgiveness is called "the F word" by some therapists.

      That’s because many people look on forgiveness as an imposition or a burden -- a necessity they feel pressured to do.

      10 Ways to Strengthen Father and Son Relationships

      The father-son relationship can be complex. Fathers and sons with widely different interests can find it hard to relate to one another. Sometimes dads and sons feel competitive against one another.
