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.

Tips:

Get involved in your kids’ school

Become part of the school community so you can get to know other parents as well as be more aware of what your child is learning and how they are progressing.

Tips:

The trap of big presents

Kids don’t want expensive gifts when you see them, they want your time and attention.
