How to Engage With Kids: Parenting Website Shares Three ‘How to be a Better Dad’ Tips With Fathers
A father’s involvement in childhood development can impact a child’s sense of self-worth, confidence and their view of relationships. Million Happy Dads reveals to fathers how to engage with kids to raise the next generation of healthy, well balanced adults.
Research shows that fathers tend to excel at certain things different to what mothers excel at. So it’s vital that a dad understands that he has a very important role to play in the strengths he brings to the table as a parent.
Shaping the next generation of adults is no small feat for fathers, especially with changing ideas, progression and movements on equality, modern technology, marriage and education.
Despite there being a substantial amount of research that outlines the benefits of a father’s involvement in childhood development, dads in particular struggle to find a work life balance because of the unchanging shift of societal responsibility. According to research from Mccrindle, men with children are expected to work 42 hours a week on average, which is exactly the same as an unmarried man with no offspring.*
CEO of Million Happy Dads – a parenting website for fathers that helps guides men on how to be a better dad – Mark Pereira, says that while times are tougher than they’ve ever been for kids, teenagers and young adults, it’s more important than ever for fathers to maintain an engaged, supportive and loving relationship with their children. www.millionhappydads.com
“A content, satiated and engaged father will have children who see more joy and laughter and as a result, their memories will be happier. Fathers also benefit from this engagement – their stress levels decrease, they feel physically and mentally healthier and stronger, and they free themselves from a worry mindset and change gear into a productive mindset,” says Mark.
Mark shares these three tips for fathers on how to engage with kids to ultimately raise healthier, stronger and well-balanced children:
- Do the simple things extremely well. “Time is like oxygen for kids; invest time in simple activities like eating meals, going for walks or engage in play time together,” says Mark. “Finding time with simple activities tailored to suit the specific situation can be easy for even the busiest fathers.”
- How you do anything is how you do everything. “Commitment means that a father keeps his word, whether it’s turning up to a football game, ballet practice or a school function on time, or providing an environment where he can give emotional, financial and material needs for his children to succeed in school and in life,” says Mark. “It’s simply setting a good example and being responsible with commitment, and considering the impact that daily actions and decisions can have on children.” www.millionhappydads.com
- Focus on personal strengths as a father, and believe anything is achievable. “Along the way to becoming involved, responsible and committed, dads should know that a father’s involvement in childhood development is different to mothering. Research shows that fathers tend to excel at certain things different to what mothers excel at. So it’s vital that a dad understands that he has a very important role to play in the strengths he brings to the table as a parent,” says Mark. “For example, fathers tend to play rough and tumble with their children more often than mothers do, which benefits children tremendously by teaching them appropriate physical play, and how to regulate their emotions.”
Million Happy Dads believes a father who knows exactly how to engage with kids benefits physically, emotionally and mentally from the exchange, and contributes to his partner’s well-being and his children’s healthy development into adulthood.
