Fatherhood: Parenting Tips for Modern Dads

With these positive parenting tips, modern fathers can help their children build confidence and self-esteem by learning to become an even better dad. Current research reveals that warm accepting fathers tend to have children with higher self esteem. An affectionate and nurturing father-child relationship furthers the development of children’s achievement, peer popularity and personal adjustment. Loving fathers, who provide reasonable, firm guidance, without arbitrarily imposing their will, help to promote competence in children.

Here are some helpful parenting tips for becoming an even better dad:

  • Spend time with your child. How a father spends his time reveals to his child what is important to him.
  • Discipline with love and positive parenting. All children need guidance and discipline, not as punishment, but to set reasonable limits.Fathers who discipline in a calm and fair manner show love for their children.
  • Be your child’s role model. Whether they realize it or not, fathers are role models to their kids. A girl who spends time with a loving father grows up knowing she deserves to be treated with respect by boys and she learns what to look for in a partner. Fathers teach boys and girls what is important in life by demonstrating honesty, humility and responsibility..
  • Be your child’s teacher. To be a good father, teach your children about right and wrong and encourage them to do their best. See that your children make good choices. Involved fathers use everyday examples to help children learn the basic lessons of life.
  • Eat together as a family. Sharing a meal together is an important part of a healthy, family life. It gives kids the chance to talk about what they are doing and want to do. It is also a good time for fathers to listen and be involved. It provides a structure for families to be together each day.
  • Respect the other parent of your child. Parents who respect each other and demonstrate mutual respect to their children, provide a secure environment for them. When children see parents respecting each other, they are more likely to feel that they are also accepted and respected within the father-child relationship.

Few events change a man’s life as much as becoming a father. Being entrusted with the responsibility and care of another person is a monumental task but is so rewarding
