Fathering improves people skills

“I think being a father is really helpful to my work. It has made me more sensitive to the needs of my staff and how they relate to their own families. My work has helped me to be able to give advice to people about the balance they achieve between their work and their home life. If I weren’t a father I wouldn’t be able to give that advice.” – Warren Reynolds, businessman and aerobatics pilot.

  • By living and promoting a balanced life you become a resource for other fathers.
  • Your example gives other fathers permission to put their families first.

Resources:

Unconditional love

Make sure that your kids know that your love for them does not come with conditions! Always show unconditional love to your children.

Tips:

Respect your children’s carers and the role they play when the children are not with you

Be aware of the pressures your children’s carer (be it partner, ex-partner or otherwise) is under in caring for the children and arrange assistance where possible.
