Father’s Day Tip

June 18, 2015

Most dad’s think or know they are important to their kids. The real challenge though is acting in such a way that the kids think the dad is important.

If you want a great Father’s Day, you have to be a great father in your kids’ eyes, not your own.

You can be that dad by placing your kids’ need above your own, spending time together and holding your kids accountable to reasonable expectations and responsibilities. You also demonstrate you are a great dad by being kind and gentle, especially with their other parent and even if you don’t really get a long.

Be forever the kind of person you want your kids to be but above all, be there and be there in a way that enhances your kids’ lives. Consider the memory you are creating of yourself for your kids by your own actions and choices.

Then you may have a great Father’s Day.
