10 Ways To Be a Better Dad

20 Aug

Condensed from Michael Howden in Christian News Northwest:  

LOVE YOUR CHILDREN’S MOTHER

It is a precious gift a father passes on to his children.

SPEND TIME WITH YOUR CHILDREN

At the end of each week, look and see where time was spent.

EARN YOUR CHILDREN’S EAR

Develop communication out of just the negative.

DISCIPLINE WITH LOVE

Guidance and discipline are lacking today, but be sure they are a function of love and not just a reaction.

BE A ROLE MODEL

Both sons and daughters will shape patterns and expectations based on what you say and do.

BE A TEACHER

No one can replace what dad alone can teach.

EAT TOGETHER AS A FAMILY

It is one of the easiest ways to bring everyone’s days together, but so easy to crowd off the schedule.

READ TO YOUR CHILDREN

While many kids lean on technology, there should also be times when they learn from books and dad together.

SHOW AFFECTION

Their security grows with each hug.

REALIZE THAT A FATHER’S JOB IS NEVER DONE

Time with them is short. Make the most of it!
