Of all the people your kids look up to one person should be at the top of the list.
That person is Dad.
Dads, do your kids look up to you? If not, why not? You don’t have to be a rock star, a movie star, or a star athlete to get your kids to look up to you. So much of being a good dad is showing up. Our kids need to know that when push comes to shove, we are there. When I was five years old my parents divorced. This was long before divorce was common.
Despite all my dad’s shortcomings, the one thing that kept me respecting him most was that he never missed a weekend visit. Not one. Rain, sleet, snow, tornado, sickness, or mechanical breakdown, my dad showed up. He has been in heaven for 25 years now, where I still look up to him.
