Sons will continue the legacy of the fathers. It's very important that the father trains and educates his child. The concept of the world, is that education starts at home with the mother, yeah education starts at church with the father. Read the trainings and education of King Solomon to his sons.

If fathers don't train up their sons, they do this to their own destruction.

19:18 Discipline your son while there is hope, but do not [indulge your angry resentments by undue chastisements and] set yourself to his ruin.

The LORD JESUS CHRIST is our example and model because He's the Beloved Son by the Father always in obedience and subjection to the Father.

17:5 While he was still speaking, behold, a shining cloud [composed of light] overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, This is My Son, My Beloved, with Whom I am [and have always been] delighted. Listen to Him!
Let our fathers here on earth take delight in us because we obey and submit to them.
Primary purpose or duty of the fathers to their sons/children is to rear them in:
d. admonition of the LORD
AND not fully delegate these to mothers and the father doesn't care and just go abroad to enjoy and escape their responsibilities/duties.
