A Dad’s Love is Powerful
I am not the model figure for “Dad of the Year Award” but I try very hard and love my children. I know that as men we may find it hard to show love sometimes. But a Dad’s love is powerful. I can almost guarantee that with a bit of quality time and love you will see differences in your child.
Being a dad of five children, you would think that I have it all together as far as being a great father. I will be the first to admit to you that I am not… and I fail more often than I should. But, that doesn’t mean I am a horrible dad. It just means I am still make mistakes and learn from them… daily. Some folks read books or watch videos about raising their children. The way I look at it is that you can read all the books you want, but until you understand your own children you will continue to miss the mark in parenting. As parents we all have children that are different in many ways and need to be loved differently. In fact, even each one of my children are very different than the next. They all need love shown in their own little way. But, if I was asked the key to bringing up a child, I would say children need both love and quality time on a consistent basis.
Here are a few powerful quotes for dads to reflect on and understand that we are a crucial piece in our child’s life.
