This is number 5 of 25 posts in 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 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 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 “Get moving. Have a fitness plan in place and get your kids to join in”
One of the best things to do as a father is stay in shape. By staying in shape and staying healthy, you are going to be around your kids longer then if you were not in shape. That will give you more time with your kids. This will also help you lower your stress in your life as well.
This will allow you to help get and keep your kids in shape and healthy. This will also keep your kids active so that they just don’t sit in front of a television and watch shows or movies or even play video games. This stuff in small portions is ok but if they do this all of the time then they will suffer in school as well as social and intelligence since most of the stuff kids watch is not educational or worth watching.
Advice “Take more walks, and leave the car at home”
This goes with the advice from above. Exercise is not always something you can do so just even walking will help. If you leave your car home and walk to the places that are near you then to are accomplishing the goal. You can use this piece of advice with another one from earlier and spend some one-on-one time with your child. Just a thought.
Advice “Fall in love with your wife. Again”
This is a very good one if you are married. This will show your kids that you are still in love with their mother and it also teaches them how to treat a woman they love in their life. If they are young kids then it’s their mother. This shows them to respect others as well. Sometimes this can be a hard task but the reward is watching your kids treat their wives or partners the same way you treat your wife or partner.
Advice “Admit you’re wrong when you are”
This can be a hard thing to do since we tend to get our pride involved. By admitting to your kids or in front of your kids that you are wrong is not going to make you weak. It reminds them that you are human and don’t always know the answers. It also teach your kids that they don’t have to be a know-it-all type of person. But if you do know all of the answers then you are a very smart person. There is a huge difference between a know-it-all and a smart person.
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.
