Financial Tips When Leaving a Job

With Diane klein

Fathers are spending more time with their children than ever, according to a recent survey. In fact, dads today spend triple the amount of time with their kids than dads did in 1965. But even with all this progress, moms around the world still spend more time with their children. In many cases, this is due to the father's work obligations. In the majority of U.S. households, men are still considered the primary breadwinner, which means mom is the one taking care of the kids and household chores. This means that the time dads DO spend with their kids needs to count.

Here Are 5 Ways Dads Can Connect with Their Children

There are many activities fathers and children can do together, but to create a strong and lasting connection with your child, there are certain things that stand out more than others.

Play With Them

Kids love games, especially before they hit the teen years. When fathers play with their children, they give them attention, show that the things that interest the child are important to them and they spend quality time together. It's not always easy, of course, when you're not really interested in the game your child wants to play. Or when you have a hundred other things on your mind, like work, bills and when you can get to sleep. However, the investment can be worthwhile. Think of it that each game you play adds another level of connection to your precious relationship

Show Their Mother Respect

What does a mother have to do with a father-child relationship, you ask? When a father respects his child's mother, it creates a positive environment for the child. This is true whether the couple is together or divorced. When parents badmouth each other, it can lead to low self-esteem, loneliness and psychological distress of the child. All of these things will make actually connecting with your children very, very hard. Not to mention all the issues it will cause them later on in life.
