3 Quick Fixes To Become A Better Dad

  • Sometimes you want to…maybe need to…quickly improve as a dad.
  • There’s nothing wrong with a quick fix. Many of your best practices as a dad started as quick fixes that proved to work.
  • If you’re in need of a quick way to improve as a dad, try one of these three things:
    • Don’t think control…think connect.
      • Listen more. Ask more questions.
      • Spend more energy on your relationship with your child.
      • Spend less energy trying to control the outcomes in their lives.
    • Don’t think rules…think equations.
      • Less “Do this.” and “Don’t do this.”
      • More “If you do this, then this will happen.” Help your child understand there are positive and negative consequences to their actions.
    • Don’t think lecture…think lab.
      • Stop talking so much. Stop teaching your child about life.
      • Let your child experience life.
      • Give your child a safe place to do life…the good, the bad, and the ugly.
