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.

Tips:

Let them live their own lives

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

Tips:

Children need good father figures

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