Leading by Example – A Fatherhood Legacy Story

By Bruce of Wichita

What do you want your children to remember of you?

Raising four daughters and now raising four of our grandchildren; that I live by example showing them how a man treat his wife and family. Knowing that family is sacrifice of oneself.

What do you remember of your father?

Working, being there for us, food, keeping me out of trouble when I got into it.

Tips:

What Children Need from Their Dads

Children need to be accepted and supported as individuals regardless of their academic success, physical ability, sporting prowess, personality, moods, morals or beliefs. This acceptance is often difficult for high-achieving fathers.

Tips:

Have a shared parenting plan

Discuss and develop a plan with your children’s carer to handle issues that require your participation when the children are not with you.
