Upcoming events while you are away

If you are frequently separated from your kids for long periods, due to working away from home, frequent travel, or access limitations, it can be difficult to keep up with all the upcoming events in your children’s lives.

You may not be able to get to all the events at your child’s school, but make sure before you part from your children that you have put upcoming events in the calendar in your phone or laptop – not just the school concert or the athletics carnival, but also class tests or talks, excursions, or anything else that is important to your child. Then make sure you send them a quick message or phone call beforehand to wish them well and let them know you are thinking of them, AND call afterwards to see how it went.

Resources:

Unconditional love

Make sure that your kids know that your love for them does not come with conditions! Always show unconditional love to your children.

Tips:

Dad and Daughter Dates

Dads need to start being connected with their daughters before and while they are teenagers. This also consists of doing things with her that may not be of your interest.
