WHAT DAD DOES: THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING A POSITIVE ROLE MODEL

Fathers can truly make a difference by loving and caring for their babies, right from the start, on a daily basis. A father’s guiding hand, love and caring touch will remain with a child for a lifetime.

The father’s primary role in the family should be as a protector, provider, nurturer and a role model for their young children. Focusing on these roles will result in a healthy and positive childhood experience. Fathers helping out within the family by changing diapers, reading to their children, playing with them and singing to them can have a positive and lasting impact. Affection and love are an essential part of the positive parenting equation and will boost a child’s confidence. A father can be a tremendous influence in teaching young children to understand the need to regulate their behavioral responses and to think before acting.

A father’s role and good modeling behavior can help stem negative behavior management issues and childhood stress in early childhood lives. Advice and encouragement are essential in rearing your children.

Also, make sure you let your children know that you believe in them. When children know that a parent has confidence in them, it comforts them and inspires them to try harder and to reach for higher goals. To ensure your children are adjusted and ready to enter the education system spend quality time with them. When fathers acts as leaders, protectors, and positive role-models for their young children, their sons and daughters will respond accordingly, and will be better prepared for success in school and life.
