Atticus Finch, To Kill a Mockingbird, 1962
The most striking thing about Atticus Finch as a father is the huge respect with which he treated his children, Scout and Jem. He embodies the morality he preaches to his kids when defending Tim Robinson in the courtroom. Atticus' excellent parenting skills are evidenced in the respect Scout and Jem have for him -- he's their hero.
