Chances are, if you’re asking yourself this question, then you already are a good dad. For the rest of us who are trying to figure our way around fatherhood, here are a few pieces of advice:
1. Get your hands dirty
Get dirty. Change diapers. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Being a hands-on dad creates an irreplaceable bond with your little guy and gal.
2. Be emotionally available
Gone are the old school days when mom was the only source of emotional support. So don’t be afraid to show more love, dad!
3. Communicate, communicate, communicate
It’s easy to get wrapped up in everyday life that we forget to talk to our family. It’s important to verbalize our thoughts and make sure to open communication lines between you and the kids.
