How To Make Your Kids Enjoy And Cherish Your Presence As A Dad

As a father, before you can call yourself a good dad, you have to be sure that your children are satisfied with your actions towards them. Are you the kind of dad that scares away his children? Do your children feel more comfortable when you are away? Do they miss your presence when you are not around? This brings us to the question, what kind of dad are you to your children?

As a dad, your responsibility is not limited to providing food and paying the bills. How you make your kids feel matters a lot. If you don't pay attention to your children, they may not know your value. That is why in many families, children love their mother more than their father. If you want your children to value and enjoy your presence, below are what you need to do.
