Take each of your kids out regularly for ‘dad dates’

A ‘dad date’ can be anything, from dinner plus a movie, a special lunch or breakfast, a walk on the beach, a shopping trip, or a trip to the park, the city, or a show. Spend that date time just listening to them. Be deliberate about creating these special times, e.g. write such plans in your diary.

Tips:

Create family surprises

Make an effort to break the monotonous routine of life more often. Your children's smiles will be all the thanks you need.

Tips:

Teaching children values

Don’t assume your children will learn the right values through TV, movies, magazines or their peers. Dads are powerful influencers, so model in your own life the values you want your children to learn.
