Have you ever wondered what it takes to be a really good father? My husband, raised with three brothers and no sisters, grew up to parent three girls and a boy. And he did a fantastic job.
In all our years of rearing, he traveled often while I single-parented. He beat himself up over the fact that he couldn’t always be home (still does).
But he found ways to be present with the kids while on the road via phone calls and texts. And when he was home, he was fully present with our children. He included them in projects and played with them on his free time. My kids absolutely love their dad because he’s so much fun.
And they have great memories of their rearing years with him.
But it takes more than just a great sense of humor and an ability to enjoy kids in order for a father to be effective in his role.
