Abstract

The Qur'an has shown that the father's role is very important in parenting. This can be seen from several dialogue verses between father and child totaling 14 verses, more than the dialogue verses between mother and child which total 2 verses, as well as parents in general with children which only total 1 verse. Fathers who have a secure attachment to their children while caring for them will help the child's development to be optimal, so that the child will be kept away from problematic behavior. One of the factors that influences father's attachment is cultural factors. Minangkabau as a culture that has the philosophy of "child on the lap, Kamanakan on the guide" shows that fathers in Minangkabau families have an important role in implementing care for their children. This research is initial research which aims to describe father's attachment in parenting in Minangkabau from the perspective of adolescents. This research was conducted in Padang City with a sample size of 164 adolescences, using accidental sampling technique. Data was taken using the IPPA-R Scale for children and analyzed using JASP. The research results showed that most of those who filled out the questionnaire were female adolescences. Furthermore, the results of the questionnaire also show that father attachment in Minangkabau is in the medium category. This means that the father has a secure attachment to his child even though he is not too close.
