Do your kids do things that really test your patience...and your love? It seems the older our kids get and the more independent they get it becomes more difficult to love. Dirty dishes left out, coming in past curfew, disobedience, or outright rebellion is tough to deal with.
But to be an All Pro Dad, we have to persevere and keep loving our kids. Here are five ways to persevere with love as a dad.
Remember, you still make mistakes and you are twice their age.
Reflect back to when you were your children’s age to be more understanding.
3. Look in the mirror.
Their mistakes can be learning opportunities and reveal your shortcomings as a dad.
4. Look for the good.
Your kids will mess up, but don’t let that be your focal point or the only thing you talk about with them. Look for the good they are doing.
5. Reward their mistakes with love.
Sounds crazy, but it’s not. When they mess up, be there to comfort and show understanding…not to condemn and tear them down.
