Children need good father figures

Look for opportunities to be a father figure to other kids – nieces, nephews, your children’s friends, etc.

  • Take other children along with yours to the football, camping, dinner or movies
  • Be interested – tell them how special they are
  • Seek out other father figures for your own kids
  • Encourage sole-parent mothers to consider appropriate father figures for their children


Set at-home office hours

If you work from home, set boundaries to work time so it doesn’t crowd out family time.
