Older teenage and adult children

Even when your children are grown up (or nearly so) they still need your reassurance that they are loved unconditionally.

  • Plan time for dad dates with all your children, no matter how old they are.
  • Tell your teenage and adult children – often! – that you love them.


Let them live their own lives

Encourage your children to have their own lives. Don't live your life through them.


Children need good father figures

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