A Good Father…

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAI have written a list of what a “Good parent is” and a what a “Good grandparent is” . Here is my list and discussion about what a good father.

This parent thing is such an important topic and needs to be talked about and considered. I have had a little experience and know something about it having raised 4 adult kids that have turned into great examples of parents themselves. (No bragging intended.)

Look at the list below and wait to to see my reasoning behind the list in the coming weeks. I would love to hear what you think and maybe I will add your suggestions to the list.


A Good Father …

  1. 1.      Shows by doing.
  2. 2.      Gives of his time.
  3. 3.      Is consistent yet flexible.
  4. 4.      Is not afraid to show vulnerability.
  5. 5.      Is present, is there.
  6. 6.      Loves their mother.
  7. 7.      Knows his priorities and his kids and family are at the top of the list
  8. 8.      Tells a good bedtime story.
  9. 9.      Doesn’t have all the answers but is looking for them.
  10. 10.  Can change a diaper.
  11. 11.  Is a man and knows what that means.


  1. #11 Prays with his children!

    • I’m being sort of secular here. But i agree whole heatedly.

Thank you
