The lessons you teach your child will have a large effect on the man/woman they become as an adult and a parent themselves. In four easy steps, you can become the father your child needs.
Take an active role in your household.
This isn’t Leave it to Beaver. Let your child see you doing laundry, cooking meals, help during bath time and most importantly, show your children that you are their #1 supporter.
Be emotional with your children.
Just because you are a man, does not mean you are looked at as being weak if you show your child you truly care. Be emotionally available to them. Remember, children are vulnerable and your feelings and opinions mean the most to them.
Take time to play.
You only have a short time with your children. Make those moments count. Go outside and teach them to ride a bike, throw a ball or just sit at the park. Create memories that will last a lifetime.
Show respect for your child’s mother.
A son will lead by example. A daughter will marry someone who best resembles her father. Take time to reflect and be aware of what kind of man your children see you as.
As the man of the house, take your role seriously by being the kind of father you know you can be.
