A father’s winning edge; 7 steps to bonding

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.

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.

  1. Great suggestions, Ruthie. My husband and I only have girls (so far, at least) and I often wonder if my husband would find fathering more natural if we had boys. I love that your tips (except for number 7) are great for dads of girls and boys.

      Yes, we had a variety, but I knew it was going to be a stretch for him having girls at first since he grew up with only brothers. But he learned and grew and did so SO great with our daughters. It takes time and settling in but God gives dads grace just like He does us moms! 🙂
