This is number 17 of 25 posts in this series.  I hope you are learning new things with this series.  Feel free to check out the rest of them by clicking here.  The following advice will only work if you put the time and effort into making them work.  I hope you are getting positive results by doing what I have listed already.

If this is things that you are already doing then just consider this as a refresher course as being a Dad.  But please still read the article. You might learn something new or even can add more in the comment section if you have a better way to explain it.

Moms can do these as well as Dads so don’t be afraid to try Moms.

 

Advice “Once in a while, take a day off just because, and spend it with your family”

This is a perfect way to show your family that they are special to you. As well as a way to recharge your mental battery so you can be a better person at work.  Just remember that you are making memories in your children’s lives.

Advice “Find out about your family history and start sharing it with your kids”

This is a way your kids can learn about their past.  They can learn where they came from and what their culture is.  This is a good way to get your kids involved in their family tree.

Advice “Give high fives for each tiny accomplishment they make”

This is a way to boost their confidence and make them more eager to be a better person.  This also shows that you care for them and what they are doing.  This will make a world of difference in your kids.

Advice “Get out of debt as quick as you can, and teach your kids about the value of being debt-free”

This will show your kids that you don’t have to be in debt to get things that they want.  It will also show them that being in debt (except for a house) is not the way to live.  If I had this advice when I was younger than I might not be in the position that I’m in right now.  Debt is not fun and it can cause stress in your family and marriage.  Some couples have divorced over this stress.

Take a second and think what it would feel like if you have all of your debt gone except for a mortgage.  How do you feel?  Does it feel good?  How is your stress level in this state?  You can feel like this and make it a goal in your life.  It will be hard, but the payoff is worth it.

I hope this series will be a big hit for everyone.  Like always, if you see something that I posted wrong or if I leave something out. Please feel free to leave a comment or email me the information.  I want this to be something new or veteran dads can use as well as all the Moms out there.

Moms can do these as well as Dads so don’t be afraid to try Moms.

 

Advice “Act as if you’re the best dad ever”

This should be something you practice all of the time.  Being the best Dad is the hardest job you will ever have.  I have seen the results of Dads that don’t do this as well as Dads that only do this half of the time.  The results are mostly what you don’t want your kids to turn out to be.  Being the best Dad will give your kids respect, love, honor, and a place where they want to be.

Advice “Imagine you’ve only got one week left to live. How would you treat your kids? What’s stopping you from doing that right now?”

You need to treat your kids like it’s your last week of your life every week.  This is a way to make sure you live life to the fullest.  Find out what is not allowing you to do this and change it so that you can start living life this way today.  This can go with the previous advice as well.  Just another way to be the best dad ever.

Advice “Let your kids see you cry”

This will show your kids that you are human and you have feelings too.  This will also help your kids learn compassion as well.  It also shows that you have feelings.

Advice “Explore every park in your town”

You can turn this into an adventure as well with your kids.  There are several health benefits for doing this including walking, playing, and staying off of electronics.  If you live in a small town then you can turn this into a weekend activity or if you live in a bigger city then you can turn this into a summer or multiple weekend activity.  This is a way to get fresh air and have fun with your kids.  Pack a lunch and have a picnic while you are doing this.

You might learn more about your community and your town by doing this.  You might even find an activity or a celebration going on there that you can partake in as well.  Even explore parks in other towns if you like as well.  We traveled to a different town to do this and found out the town was celebrating their town’s birthday with a parade.  Things like this will be remembered by your kids for a long time.

I hope this series will be a big hit for everyone.  Like always if you see something that I posted wrong or if I leave something out then please feel free to leave a comment or email me the information.  I want this to be something new or veteran dads can use as well as all of the Moms out there.
