- No matter what, Dads love you and always will.
3 Ultimate Tips for Dads
Dads are a step above mere fathers because dads greatly value each of their children and give them the best of himself. Because it’s important to give his treasured family what, in his eyes, they deserve, dads can be under a lot of pressure. The following are a few tips for caring, loving daddies.
1- Relax! You’re the Best!
Sometimes dads worry about being a truly great dad, but it’s not that hard. The important things besides providing financial stability and a loving home for the family are to love mom and spend quality time with his beloved kids.
2-Give Mom a Break!
The old adage that “when Momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy” is a true one! Mothers are wired differently than men and can wear themselves out with all the detailed minutiae they handle continuously, whether on the job or at home. The best dads recognize that it’s a small miracle mothers don’t get total burnout! So, they provide plenty of opportunities for Mom to take a break. This could mean taking care of the baby while Mom takes a long, hot bubble bath or while she simply sleeps through the night.
3-Balance Discipline of the Kids with Kindness
Some dads take their role as disciplinarians in the home a tad too seriously. It’s more effective to be loving and kind while expecting the best from your kids. The words, “I love you” are meaningless to children when they come from someone who is always stern.
The presence of a loving dad in the home is the single greatest factor in a child’s ultimate success in life. Fatherlessness is a key factor in the lives of 71% of high school dropouts, 85% of children who exhibit behavioral disorders, and 85% of juveniles in prison. Many other statistics uphold the claim that a good father may be the number one factor contributing to a child’s happiness throughout life. So, dads everywhere, thank you!
