As a father, it is potentially the greatest job you could ever have. Your words and actions will the future of a life. There are, in life, many lessons we learn, but some should be taught at a young age.
Children need to learn that while there are two parents, both need to stick together in discipline. It’s hard for a father who may work full time to come to their children and have to step in to help discipline. For example, take a child who won’t eat their dinner. It may be easy for a father to just let it go, but in reality, the lesson the child will learn if the father stands tall with the mother is that there are no bending the rules.
Another important less in life is the acceptance of doing something wrong, but yet still trying again and again. If a child drops a ball, it’s okay. A good father will teach the child that dropping a ball, or losing in a board game is okay. Even for those times when a child wants to give up on something, a father must stand there with positive reinforcement, showing the child that it takes practice in life to learn. This can stand for sports, activities, and even school work.
