Play is one of the best ways dads can connect with their children.
Regardless of the age a child is, he is longing for his dad to show him affection. Hugs, kisses, saying "I love you" everyday gives a child assurance that he is valuable to his dad.
Children learn from watching you, from listening to you, and from trying new things. So Dad, whether it is around the home, in a park, or helping with school work, remember that you are a significant teacher for your child.
Being a father never ends. You are a dad for a lifetime. Your influence helps guide your child's choices and build trust between you both.
Being a father starts from the moment you know the baby is coming. Those first few months before and after the birth can give you an incredible start in connecting with your child.
