Father’s Day is right around the corner and I have found myself reflecting a lot on the qualities that define what a good father is. If you think about it, being a dad is not an easy job. It involves always being in mom’s shadow and the truth is that fathers also play an integral role in the nurturing and development of their children. Many fathers question whether they are doing a good job or not and, if you asked their children, they would probably say that they have the best fathers in the whole world!
I’ve been very fortunate in my life to be able to witness firsthand some of the best fathers in the world with the men in my own family. Watching them over the years has allowed me see that any doubts that they might have about their parenting were completely unfounded. Here are some of the lessons that they have imparted to me and to those around them about the qualities that define a good father. So, without further ado, here it is…
- A good father puts the needs of his children ahead of his own and makes sacrifices in order to fulfill those needs.
- Fathers are heroes to their children and make them feel protected at all times, no matter what.
- Good fathers treat the mothers of their children with love and respect in order to model how women should be treated at all times.
- Dads are nurturers just like moms are and they demonstrate their love for their children through their affection whenever they can.
- Good fathers stand by their families when times are good and when they are not so good.
Minute Maid wants to celebrate all the dads who are “Doin’ Good” by highlighting the qualities that make them such wonderful fathers. Check out this new video from my friends at Minute Maid. Make sure you share it with all the dads in your life to help them remember that they, too, are doing a great job as a father!
