A Good Father… #6

000_0012I 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.)

Here is number one from that list I would love to hear what you think and maybe I will add your suggestions to the list.

6.      Loves their mother.

 

It goes without saying you are on a team with your spouse. You have to be together and on the same page. But the key to the whole thing is you need to love the team and your teammate your spouse.

Here is the entire list:

A Good Father …

1.      Shows by doing.

2.      Gives of his time.

3.      Is consistent yet flexible.

4.      Is not afraid to show vulnerability.

5.      Is present, is there.

6.      Loves their mother.

7.      Knows his priorities and his kids and family are at the top of the list

8.      Tells a good bedtime story.

9.      Doesn’t have all the answers but is looking for them.

10.  Can change a diaper.

11.  Is a man and knows what that means.
