January 24, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 150

Fatherhood is one of the toughest and by far the most rewarding experience any man will ever have in his lifetime. Being a dad is a huge responsibility that takes tons commitment, love and creativity. And in a culture that often minimizes the importance of fatherhood in the lives of our children, to the detriment of those same children we've got to raise up a generation of men that want to stand up and be the best dads they can possibly be. So if you want to become a better father to your kids then you came to the right place.

Follow these 4 simple rules to become a Super Dad.

Rule No.1- Talk To Your Kids Often

Spend quality time talking to you kids. You may think that your kids are too young to engage in worthwhile conversations with you, but you'd be wrong. You see people as a whole (kids included), will rise or fall to your expectations of them. So if you treat your kids like they're immature beings with nothing worthwhile to offer then that's exactly what you'll get.

Get to know your kids, their likes, dislikes, what subjects they're interested in, in school and do your best to stimulate that interest.

Talk and listen to your kids and you'll both learn a lot.

Rule No.2- Don't Panic!!! Be Prepared

Most dads are quick to panic, especially when their young kids start crying.They will start fumbling for the milk bottle or pacifier,and yet the baby still won't stop crying! The trick is to, just relax and keep calm, panicking will not help the situation.

Create a checklist in your mind of all the primary reasons why you baby cries and learn what your baby's the different cries mean; for instance change me vs I want my bottle vs I'm tired and I need a nap etc.

Preparation and practice will calm those nerves and you'll start getting impressed stares from all the moms as they see that you're no ordinary daddy!

Rule No.3- Don't Give In to Terrorists

Giving your kids whatever they ask for is the easy way to get your children to like you and do what you say,but it's not the right way to raise kids.

Sure it may work in the short term but it won't work forever. You need to also understand that kids (no matter how young) are pretty darn smart. They're masters of getting what they want and if they learn that when they wine a certain way they get their way then you my friend are in for a lifetime of difficult disrespectful children.

The trick, when dealing with your kids demands is to stand your ground and explain the reasons why you won't give them what they want and if possible offer alternative solutions.

Rule No.4- Find Super Mentors

Find mentors in men who are raising their kids in the way that you want to. Become friends with them, Take them out to lunch and ask their advice. Spend time with them and their kids. Not only will you learn from them but they and their kids will be a positive influence on yours.
