How to Be a Great Dad? 5 Tips That Helped Me The Most

Being a father is the most wonderful thing that can happen in the life of a man. Fatherhood provides a great feeling of completeness. Here are 5 tips that helped me the most to become a “Superman Daddy”!

1- Cherish Your Time With Your Children

Whatever time you are able to spare from your daily work duties, spend it with your children. Play with them, sing with them, dance with them, do everything that will make your children happy. Every single second you spend with your kids should be cherished by you. However, remain careful and don’t let your kids be addicted to video games. In fact, you should model good behavior into your kids by providing a healthy space for them. Both indoor and outdoor activities should be balanced.

2- Don’t Become a Workaholic

Don’t be a workaholic. Believe me, your family deserves a lot more attention than your work. Your work is important, no doubt but please leave all the hassles of your work in the office table. When you are at home, Children will notice the behavior of their dad, your children will learn to respect others too.
3- Learn What Your Children Want From You

Don’t be a confused dad! Have knowledge as to what your kids expect from you. Become a friend to them, not a dictator. If you become a friend then your children will share their feelings to you. This way you will get to know what your kids expect and what makes them happy. You can then become the world’s best dad by fulfilling their wishes. But, a word of caution here! Do not ruin the habit of your kids by giving them all they wish for. They must understand the value of money and time. Share love to them over luxurious gifts. Children are like saplings, they will become what the gardener wants them to be. You are the gardener of your children, so love them and help them become good human beings.
4- Enjoy Every Moment of Your Fatherhood, Time Flies Too Quickly

It’s been 6 years since my first child was born. But believe me, it seems like just a year and a half has passed by. Time flies too quickly than you can ever imagine. Hence, don’t postpone anything for tomorrow. Whatever your family expects from you, do it today!

Enjoy each and every moment of your fatherhood. Be there when your child is learning to walk, take them to the school, attend parent-teacher meetings, attend sports and cultural activities of your kids. Do whatever is required and cherish each and every moment.
5- Have a Great Sense of Humor and a Little Patience

Strictness is good but over doing it, is harmful. It is always better to have a little patience when it comes to raising your kids. Have a great sense of humor, laugh with your kids, laugh with their mom, just a few minutes of laughter each day can entirely change the atmosphere of your house. Who doesn’t love smiley kids? If their dad is smiling, the kids will also learn to smile. Amuse them wherever you can, whenever you can and sow the habit of humor on your kids. Don’t abuse and beat your children often, this way they might start hating you. Instead, make them understand what they did wrong in a polite manner. A strict voice is necessary if your kids are not taking you seriously but every time having a strict tone is not good. Adjusting yourself is the key here to finding the happy parenting balance.

Don’t Forget to Keep Yourself Happy

When there are a lot of responsibilities on our shoulders, the first thing that we tend to forget about is keeping ourselves happy. Remember, if you are happy, you can pass on that happiness to your family. So do everything that keeps you happy. Whether it’s buying your favorite music system or having a mug of expresso with your friends. Enjoying life’s little joys helps to get rid of negative energies and infuses a new positive attitude.

To become a super dad, you need to remain happy
