Advice to Dad’s

Advice to Dad’s
Be yourself

Wear a cowboy hat and play the part of the good guy. Fill your life with loving deeds towards you wife and children and you will be rewarded.
Be a man of your word.
Let your yes be yes and your no mean no. Do not make promises you cannot keep but rather say “if I can, I will…”. In this way you will reduce the disappointments of those around you.
Treat your family like the preacher was living there.
Practice your best holiness at home. Lift your family up in prayer several times a day. They need to know that you are talking with God on their behalf.
Never be too busy to let your children interrupt you.
Your children need your love. They need to know that you care more about them than whatever project you are working on. They will only be little for a short time and then their interruptions will end and you will miss them.
Every Dad should marry his kids off a dozen times in his mind.
You should be concerned about whom they will marry as much as their own character development. Seek the best for them and let them know that is what your desire is for them. Seek not only a mate that claims to be a Christian but one who seeks to be committed to you child for life.
Teach your kids to work.
If they don’t work the Bible says they, shouldn’t expect to eat. Be a good example of a healthy work ethic. Not just at your job but also around the house. Help your spouse with the chores of cooking and cleaning daily.
Do not fear showing your emotions.
Every Dad should cry when their child leaves home. Displaying your emotion shows them how deeply you love and care for them.
Leave the back door unlocked and the light on.
This is symbolic of your lifelong commitment to your children. It is your promise to be their daddy forever. It is your statement that they are loved unconditionally.
Love your wife forever
Hug her, rub her feet, cook her a meal and wash the dishes. This is God’s plan for you.
Ecclesiastes 9:9
Enjoy life with the wife whom you love, all the days of your vain existence which has been given to you under the sun because that is your portion in life and in the toil which you toil under the sun.
