12 Things Fathers Should Do With Their Children During This Holiday by passionateyouth: 9:30pm On Aug 03, 2014
A Greek philosopher once defined man as a rational animal. If you think about it at all, you will realize that this is a terrible definition. Man may be a thinking animal, but much of what men do, maybe even most of what they do, is neither logical nor rational. Euripides was far closer to truth when he described men as full of conflicting, irrational desires, creatures that were very hard to understand, especially in regard to their treatment of women and sometimes children. Here are few things men can do for a change regarding their children.

Tell your child stories about when you were little. Let her know about mistakes you made and things you did right.
Talk to your child about what she wants to do when she grows up and visit workplaces where she can learn about different jobs.
Make your child’s favorite meal with her.
Plan a picnic with your child. Have her help you pack the lunch and find a local park or outdoor spot to go for the picnic, even if it’s your own yard.
Listen to your child’s favorite music and watch his or her favorite TV shows and movies with her.
Encourage or support your child’s interests and schoolwork by asking her to share with you what she is learning. Spend time with your child as she completes her homework.
Encourage your child to read in her free time. Take her to the library and let her get her own library card.
Play board games with your child.
Be physically active with your child. Go for a walk together or teach them how to play a game (I'll suggest lawn tennis).
Tell your child stories about when you were little. Let her know about mistakes you made and things you did right.
Meet and be interested in your child’s friends. Talk to her friends’ parents by phone or in person if your child will be spending time at their home.
Let children know what you expect and why, like how you want her to behave in school or at home. Be consistent
