Be a role model of the values you want your children to have

Dads are very powerful in establishing values.

  • Don’t rely on TV, movies, magazines or peers
  • Be specific about values like trust, honesty, integrity, respect, racism, generosity to those who are poor and kindness to those in need

Tips:

Dads need to be dependable

Make yourself available to your children even when you are away from home. Let them know they can call you anytime they are in need.

Tips:

“Being there” with technology

Use technology to have face-to-face chats with your children when you are away from them.
