The father plays an important role in the child's life. His participation in education is necessary for the development and psychological formation of a child's personality. Regardless of his employment, the father should take time to communicate with the children.
The baby needs to feel the love and care of both parents. Help your wife take care of the baby. Pick up and talk to your child more often. Take a walk with your baby, children love to watch, and a walk in the fresh air is a lot of new events and impressions for crumbs.
With older children, engage in joint creativity: draw, sculpt, build towers and ships from Lego. Instill in your child a love of sports: teach him how to ride a bike, skate or ski. Who, if not dad, will tell about men's hobbies: fishing, football or car racing.
Communicate with the child, it is very important for him to know your opinion, because the authority of the father is unshakable, especially at an early age. Communication with people, attitude towards women, respect, understanding, reliability - these and other traits are often inherited by a son from his father. For a girl, dad is an example of what a real man should be. And having matured, she often looks for the features of a father in her fans. Children imitate their parents' behavior from an early age, so try to be a positive example for your child.
Don't worry if you feel like you are spending too little time with your child because of your busy schedule. Let it be just one day a week, it is not the number of hours spent together that matters, but the quality of communication with the children. Use this time to good use: go with your child to the zoo, theater, to sports matches, organize a family trip to nature.
As the child grows up, involve him in household chores. Children are always interested in what adults are doing. Do not dismiss the child, let him also take part in the chores around the house, so you will pass on your experience to him.
In addition, the father should be an advisor and mentor: give advice at the right time, support in a difficult situation, help and sympathize. Family communication is also very important for a child's development. In a full-fledged family, where parents love and respect each other, there are more chances to give children a good, correct upbringing.
