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.

Giving and receiving high fives is just fantastic 🙂
Reblogged this on DREAM BIG DREAM OFTEN and commented:
Is it important to you to teach your kids the importance of being debt-free?
I have given so many high fives that my kids do it for me now too and I love it. I also agree with playing hooky and spending a day with your family it truly brings everyone closer. I do this frome time to time and even leave work early to surprise my kids at school. Debt is a hard one I find as when they are younger there is buy in but once the teen years kick in and work begins saving sorta stops. I takes awhile but eventually my oldest has come around and dad has shared my mistakes with her to show what can happen.
