This article offers tips on how to be an ideal husband and father. The only guarantee that the author of this article can guarantee is that he himself is a husband and father who sincerely strives to play both roles well, although I know it is never enough. He himself is always learning.
- Trust your wife and actually do it. Remember, she is and will always be in charge of some of the most important aspects of your life.
- Love your wife. It is equally important to be able to love your wife for being what she is to you.
- Speak openly. When you have doubts about your integrity, such as between two people who are together in a certain environment for a certain period of time, it is very important that you have an open discussion on the matter, to resolve the doubts as soon as possible.
- Pay attention to the sacrifices you make for your relationship. Maybe she makes sacrifices to try to fix something that’s broken, but it’s your job to make sure she doesn’t do anything that you don’t share or know about. If you learn of any sacrifices you have made, it is your duty to reciprocate and make sure your work has not been wasted. How you do it is up to you, but you have to.
- See the family, if that’s the role you have chosen. If you are the one who supports the family, you must, of course, provide. And its main task, without obligations on the part of those to whom it provides.
- Take responsibility for the present and future well-being of your child, from the day he came into the world, and give him a good heart. A parent should not hold grudges or fears because of their child’s sex, skin color, or any other trait, whether natural or adopted. If a parent is in doubt about it, they are immediately and naturally deprived of the ability to be a good parent.
- You don’t necessarily have to satisfy every whim of your child. Rather, select the best that the child will really benefit from without burning his wallet.
- Be constantly and continually committed to the present and future well-being of your child. A good father must be ready to make sacrifices for the sake of his child. If the child benefits from being away from home for school or other reasons, the father has a natural ability to endure separation. And you must make good use of it. When you are not apart, your time, your ears, your patience, and your advice are among the most important assets you can give your child.
- Show and receive confidence. The extent to which you are a good parent is reflected in your child’s trust naturally placed in you. Therefore, a parent must never betray the trust of their child.
- Be a guide, not a best friend. Your child is not your partner. Your child needs you to provide not only food, toys, medicine, etc. Your child needs you to pass on the wisdom, strength, and goodwill that you have accumulated over the years. These will happen to him (or her) naturally, you just have to wish for it.
- Feel free to draw whatever is positive of the above. Remember, it can be anything you want if you really want it.
Always be open to advice and criticism. Do not tolerate anything that is imposed on you. No one has the right to force you to do anything. If it happens, it’s only because you allowed it, consciously or not. Learn to say yes and say no, but most importantly, learn when to say which. Make a sincere effort. Learn to respect others as you would like to be respected. Take everything positively. It’s hard, but give it a try, it’s worth it. Always make informed decisions. Learn to be friendly when necessary.
