This is a list of a thousand tips and bits of advice for fathers. I am a father of two sons, one is 19, the other is 7. I was a single father throughout my first son's life until I met my wife. I've been a stay at home dad since the little guy was born, as well as home-schooling him for kindergarten and first grade. Most of my tips are common sense.-Have patience, and then when you have none left, somehow have more patience.-Don't just tell them you love them, constantly show your children and your partner how much you do.-Action always speaks louder than words. -Teach your children, don't leave it up to babysitters and schools to do it.-Be the parent, be the grown up. Sometimes it's a difficult, messy job, but it's yours not theirs. -Keep family at the center of everything, closely surrounded by friends. -There is never a reason to be bored. That includes yourself.-Show respect, give respect, teach respect. -Have fun! Try to remember what it was like to be their age and commit to imagination right along side them!-Take care of yourself, set good examples of healthy living. Instill that in your children. -Practice unconditional love and awareness in your daily lives as a family. This is my very honest, humorous, and straight forward guide to help out any dad looking for answers or a head's up to the many questions that come along with having children. I have learned a tremendous amount about being a good father, and husband, and how to be a good man in general, along the way. As well as a million other things I never even thought I'd want or need to know! There is no doubt that raising children is a serious, tremendous, and important job. But it is also filled with more joy and laughter and excitement than anything else I have ever done or come across! Enjoy, and Happy Fathering!Originally published in fifty pieces on my blog, justshad.wordpress.com
My Life as a Single Mom tells author Maureen Brundage's story of how she became a single mother of four when her husband decided to unexpectedly leave her, and how she coped with raising her children alone as a single parent. Her story demonstrates God's miracles in forgiveness, blessings, and giving. A book about choosing to forgive no matter what happens. A book demonstrating the strength of the Lord for a single parent. One of the criterions for choosing to forgive is locking into it every chance we get. Becoming a single parent was a lesson in trusting God for everything. If we put God first, He will provide. God is faithful. Do we need to forgive God when God is perfect? The fruit of forgiveness is sweet.
