First of all I apologize for releasing this on Tuesday instead of Monday.  I had been sick with a cold the last few days. So I hope you enjoy the series.

In this series I will be talking about four things you can do starting this week to make yourself a better dad to your children as well as being a better spouse to your partner.  Each week for the next 25 weeks I will add four new things to this list that you can use with the previous ones.

If this are things that you are already doing then just consider this as a refresher course as being a Dad.  But please still read the article because you might learn something new or even can add more in the comment section.

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


Advice “Be present with your children or child”

I start this week with one of the best pieces of advice I was given when I was a new Dad.  You need to be present to your children.  You need to be in their lives now.  This will make them feel safe as well as stable knowing they have a father in their life.  You don’t want to miss an important milestones like watching them walk for the first time or watching their first dance residual.  Kids grow up so fast anyway so don’t miss anything with your children.

Advice “Huge amounts of praise on your kids”

Always praise your kids for the good things they do even if they mess something up.  You want to have a kind heart when they do something wrong because they learn how to discipline by your example.  The more praise you do the better your relationship with your kids will be.  They will be comfortable talking to you about other stuff when they get older.

Advice “Focus on the positive when speaking to your children”

Like before in the previous advice is that you need to talk with a kind heart towards your children.  This will build your relationship with your kids as well as making them safe around you.  It is a good thing for them to come to you about doing something wrong knowing you won’t yell at them in a negative way.

Advice “Say I love you. A lot”

This is another important thing to do with your children.  You need to tell them these three magical words a lot to them.  It will make them feel good as well as knowing they have a loving father.  This is important to dads of daughters since the more they feel loved then the less chance of marrying a guy that will hurt them later in life.  For dads of sons, you will teach them to be a loving person towards others.

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.
