The power of good father figures

Being a father figure is an important role for all men, e.g. uncles, grandfathers, teachers, sports coaches, youth/scout leaders and pastors.

  • Children with no father contact need father figures
  • Intentionally make your contacts with nephews, nieces, your children’s friends, etc encouraging

Tips:

Don’t forget some “ME” time

Schedule time for yourself when the children are with you, but only after you have reconnected with your children.
