BUSY DADS: YOUR KIDS NEED YOU TOO!
Dads usually don’t have enough time to spend with their kids probably because of their tight schedule or because the kid’s mom is there.
You’ll become more attuned to the emerging abilities of your kids, if you spend more time with them.
Dads who spend little time with their kids won’t understand the capability of their kids. They tend to underestimate or overestimate their skills. The more time you spend with your kids creates more awareness of their abilities and talent. This will enable you to provide challenging stimulating interaction.
It will boost your self-esteem
There is an old adage that says “the more you put into it, the more you will get out of it”. When you spend time with your children, the better dad you will be. Fathering is a learning process. You will gain more satisfaction as you become more accomplished in the learning process. As you note how important your child sees you, you’ll feel a sense of self-importance.
You will have more influence on your kids
When you spend more time with your children, intimacy is built. Your children will always want to be around you. The closer the relationship with your kids, the more likely they will identify with you thereby, enabling you to instill your positive values.
