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 “Read out loud to your children”
This can both helpful to both you and your child. They can learn new words by reading them as well as learn the spelling of the words they are reading. There is several published articles that will back this claim up. This will make your child smarter and better in school.
This will benefit you by allowing you to spend time with your child. They number one think any child wants from their parents is their time. This is an easy way to spend that time with them.
Advice “Leave your work issues at your job. Don’t dump on your kids because your day was bad”
Sometimes you are still frustrated at what happened at work and you are still thinking about it. Just “Let it Go” like Elsa did in Frozen. Leave work at work. Life is too short for being grouchy at your kids because you had a bad day. Your kids don’t need it and it can be harmful to the relationship between your child and you.
Advice “Drop your change in a jar each day. When full, open a savings account for your child”
Another important piece of advice for you. Teach your kids how to save money as well as how to handle money. Teach them to live within the amount of money they earn and not to go into debt. It will make them enjoy their purchases as well as a feeling of ownership. If they know how hard it is to make money and buy something, the more they will keep it nice and in good shape.
Advice “Once in a while, ask your kids what you can do better. Then do it better”
Your kids can tell you if you are doing something wrong or if you can do it better. This will come in handy if you think you are doing everything correctly. Bad news for you on this. You can also improve yourself and your kids can tell you exactly what you can improve. So listen to them.
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.
