Being a good father starts with a good mother

“My father was a bit of a role model but he was more distant than my mother was. She was very insightful and had a much greater effect on me than my father.” – John Inverarity, former Australian cricketer

  • Take time to connect with your children. Stop what you are doing, look them in the eye, and actively listen to them
  • Reflect on the parenting style of your mother and father. Incorporate the good qualities from either into your own parenting
  • Watch your wife as she parents. Acknowledge what she does well and find ways to make those techniques your own.
