Take Time To Be A Dad Today
Like President Obama said in a recent message, even the smallest moments can have the biggest impact in a child's life. Here are some more easy ways you can be involved:
Write a Note. Do you leave for work early? Write your child a note she'll find at breakfast time. Something as simple as "I hope you have a good day" will make her feel special.
Start a Ritual. Maybe it's bath time. Maybe you always read the bedtime story. Or maybe it's the hug you give when you first get in the door after work.
Be Affectionate. Yeah, you might feel awkward if hugging isn't your thing. But, your kids crave your affection. Hug, kiss, high five, have a tickle war - let them know you love them.
