We’ve all seen out-of-control parents at youth sports events. But some research gives dads a better option for encouraging our kids.
While we dads can’t guarantee that our children will make wise choices and lead a responsible life, we can greatly increase the odds.
With all the uncertainty in today’s world, we must not underestimate what a difference it makes when kids feel safe, loved, valued, and heard.
Joy should be an everyday habit and should continue to be evident through the entire course of our fathering lives.
The father who’s truly seeking the best for his kids puts his knowledge and his aspirations into action. Simply stated, he connects.
Dr. Michelle Watson started this silly tradition with her dad, and you can do something similar with your children to increase laughter and strengthen your bond.
Being a good dad usually means sacrificing some activities. But in reality, it isn’t a sacrifice because our kids are more important.
We’re thinking about them–what’s happening in their world. We’re stepping out of our own issues and concerns and being all about theirs.
By Peter Lewis: Hope for, wait for, eagerly anticipate, even relish the joyful intrusion of your children into your life.
