Recently we ran across an article that suggested that children live for the smile of their father. We thought there was power in that sentiment. Dad may not have to utter a word. His smile of approval or delight toward his children can lift a child higher than any trophy.
June 21 is Father’s Day. We think it’s one of the greatest days of the year. Why? Because we’re going to get a bunch of neckties from our children…probably the same ones off the rack that you’ll give to your dads? Sure.
This is the year when many of us dads will resolve to make a change in how we parent our children. We’ll decide to listen more, be more present, be more forgiving and understanding—perhaps even to be a better husband.
