Being a great dad (or the wife of a great dad!) is a challenge, and we all need a little help sometimes. Not all that long ago, being a “good father” mean being the provider protector, putting food on the table and shoes on everyone’s feet. That was all that was expected—and, in many ways, all that was allowed. But today, being a “good father” means a whole lot more. Sure, we’re still supposed to provide and protect. But we’re also supposed to be:
- A positive role model
- A mentor
- A coach
- A teacher and guide
- A regular presence in our children’s lives
- An active, involved participant in childcare and running the house
- An effective, productive employee or businessman
- A good husband
- A good communicator
- An upstanding member of our community
- A shoulder to cry on
- A living, breathing piece of playground equipment
- The heavy-lifting, carpool-driving, lawn-mowing, lunch-making, playdate-organizing, story-reading, dish-washing guy
Whew! That’s a lot of pressure.
