Nobody said being a good father was easy. No matter what age your child is or how many children you have, you have to know that a father's work is never done. To be a good father, you have to be present, be a good disciplinarian and role model, and be sympathetic to your children's needs without being a pushover. Make time for your kids. Your children don't care if you've just had a big promotion at your company or whether or not you own the most expensive house on the block. What they do care about is whether or not you'll be home in time for dinner, if you'll take them to the baseball game on Sunday, and if you'll be around for movie night that week. If you want to be a good father, then you have to set aside time every day for your children -- or at least every week -- no matter how busy you are. Agree??
Totally agree! Plug this time into your schedule. Maybe your best nights for your children are Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays. Take the time to put in extra care during those days, and don't let other commitments get in the way.If you have more than one child, then you should make time to see each child individually, so your unique relationships can develop.If you're so tired that you can't possibly make yourself get up to basketball with your son/daughter, do something else with him/her instead, like watching a basketball game or a basketball-themed movie. It's important that you're there in some capacity.
Be there for the milestones. Though planning "daddy time" for your kids each week is a great way to strengthen your relationship, you should also try to be there for important milestones in their lives. Arrange your work schedule so that you can be there for your son/daughter's first day of school, your son/daughter's first big sporting event, or your son/daughter's high school graduation.Your children will remember these moments for the rest of their lives, and having you be there will mean a lot.You may be very busy when one of your kids is about to hit a milestone, but if you miss out, you'll regret it later on.
Teach your children the important lessons. You should also be present to teach your children how to complete the basic tasks of life. You can help your son use the bathroom, teach your children to brush their teeth properly, help them learn how to ride a bike, and teach them to drive when the time comes. You can also teach your sons how to shave and maintain good hygiene. Your kids will need you to learn the big life lessons as well as the small everyday tasks.Split these lessons with your wife. You should both teach your children the important things they need to know to grow up.
Help your children learn from their mistakes. If they've done something wrong, you should help them see why and talk about how to avoid the behavior in the future instead of simply punishing them and moving on.Develop strong communication. Being present for the important moments in your children's lives is very important, and so is being able to communicate with your children when you're there. You don't always have to do something exciting with your kids for them to enjoy hanging out with you -- you just have to focus on being able to communicate with them, to understand their concerns and struggles.
Make sure to check in with your kids every day, so that you know what they're worried about, what they have coming in that week, and what's on their minds.Don't just superficially ask, "How was your day?" without really wanting to know the answer.If your children are teenagers or busy college students, then they may not want to discuss the details of their days with you. Just make sure to check in often enough that they know you care without feeling smothered.Plan trips with your kids. To be a good father, you should take the time to go trips with your kids -- with or without their mother. You can take a yearly fishing trip with your daughters, a trip to the beach with your son, or a camping trip that your kids will never forget. Whatever you do, try to make it special, memorable, and something that can be repeated at least once a year so that you've developed a fun daddy-centric routine.
I agree with you. Your social status really doesn’t matter for children. You can be a big boss or have a huge villa. However it will bring your any happiness, while you will have family problems. Family values and children should be at the first range in your everyday schedule, in other way your life will be never full with joy and happiness.
You will never know whether you are a good father or not until your child says that i guess...My friends wanted to became parents more than anything in their life. So they were looking through lots of companies and agencies. But finaly they have found this one - http://www.surrogacymed.com/legal-matte ... itain.html They really helped my friends to have a bay. You will see that they are real professionals. Guys are very happy now. I think when me and my partner will be ready to be parents - we will call that agency and will work out with them. Now i can say that within few years their child will say whether they are good parents or not!
It is nearly impossible to not agree with your point. Of course children need your attention. They don't need anything from you, but love. I think it is easy to be a good father, you should just enjoy it. To spend time together should be as cool for you as for your children. You should just have fun together. It is not an obligation , it is opportunity.
WHen you decide to have a child, i guess you are already a father, cause you haev decisded to take a great responsibility and be a role model to a small copy of you. that is a reason to praise yourself already. however i am sure, firmly sure that you cannot be completely sure in how to be a good father. what characteristic should one have. most of all i think you should love your child, be a base, so to say. and no matter how naughty he or she is - you have to be near and just help whatever happens. For me it is the main sign of a good father.
