SIX WAYS TO BE A BETTER DAD

1.

Be more active
A father must take the initiative and assume responsibility right from the very beginning. Child rearing is responsibility of both the partners.

2.

Be emotionally available to your children
Being emotionally available and involved is a very essential part of father child relationship. In place of reprimanding, try to understand your child, be sensitive to his needs.

3.

Practice makes a man perfect
Do not assume that your partner magically knows more than you do. Rather she too has learnt through her own experiences with day to day dealings and chores of the child. You too will know how to raise kids by just simply doing it.

4.

Be a partner not a helper
The traditional father who would come from work and just play an hour with his child, eat food and go to sleep is outdated. If men are going to be fully involved they are going to share responsibility for the household and childcare in active fashion.

5.

Be available
Your child should be able to have access to your time any day. Be involved in his day to day decisions. It is very necessary for the father to be actively involved in everyday chores and activities.

6.

Take Pride in the special way you are with your kids
The rough and tumple of father play teaches valuables lessons about regulating emotions. Children with physically active dads are more popular and successful in their relationship with other children.
