Help me find examples of father-child relationships in the Bible.

I became a father last week, so I'd like to base my Bible reading over the next wee while on fatherhood. I'm particularly interested less in occasional verses, and would rather substantial accounts of particular relationships. Think: the whole shebang with Abe and Issac; avoid: "Honour thy father and Mother".
I'd appreciate the cautionary tales as well as the positive ones. Father-daughter relationships even better, but I'm not into heavily gendering my little girl so soon, so father-son stuff is acceptable, too.
