Dads need to be dependable

“Dads need to be dependable. Kids need to know that Dad will respond to any situation and try to provide for their physical and emotional needs.” – Ray Arthur, minister.

  • Begin by responding to your child’s needs at home. Make eye contact, listen, help when you can.
    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.
  • When you consistently respond to your child’s smaller needs, they will trust in you and call on you as their needs get bigger.
