Dad is a step-by-step guide to building a great relationship with your children. A relationship that one day turns into a best friendship. Many fathers spend 18 plus years raising their kids, only to have them leave the house and not look back. These kids call only when they have to, come over for the holidays that they cant get out of.
Phone calls are awkward and not that often. That is not how it is suppose to be. You apply the principles in this book and your kids will be coming to you all of your life. They will call because they want to. They will enjoy talking to you, and sharing with you all that is going on in their life. They will look forward to spending time with you. When reading this book, please understand that we all make mistakes especially us fathers. We all have made mistakes and will probably make a lot more in the future. Being a great father isn t about making no mistakes.
Being a great father is about learning not to make the same mistake over and over again. Being a great father isn t about our lack of character in a few bad situations. It is our overall character that we demonstrate to our kids throughout each day and throughout our lives. Realize that great fathers are not born- they are developed.
Every father has inside him the potential to be a great dad. But like anything in life, it takes understanding how to be great, then a lot of practice to be great, and, finally, choosing to be great. Being a great dad isn t something you just try or even do for 18 years. It has to be something you do for the rest of your life. You have to dedicate yourself to never stop growing and to never stop changing. Always pursuing being the best dad you can be.
Whether your kids are 2 or 52, it is never too late to start developing a great relationship with them. I believe if you do everything in this book, one day your kids will be saying, My dad is my hero and
