Happy Father's Day to all the incredible fathers, caregivers, and father figures!!!! Thank you for all you do.
In my early years, I was raised by my mother and the women in our extended family. Everything I learned about Fatherhood was from observing some awesome men. The most profound lessons in Fatherhood have come from watching my husband raise our son for almost three years.
In this blog post, I will share the five ways my husband has been a great father.
Being a present Dad
Every day, I appreciate that my husband is a very present parent to our son. In the environment that I grew up in, many fathers were not present in their children's lives.
Developing our son's creative skills
Our son really enjoys music, instruments, and dancing. His father found out the type of music he liked, got him musical instruments, and encouraged him to enjoy music.
Prioritizing meeting our son's needs
Recently, I realized that my husband and I take care of different needs. Our son is very well-rounded because his father and I meet his needs.
Teaching our son new skills
Every time my husband teaches our son to say to do something new, he gets very excited. Our son is a sponge and soaks in all the knowledge at this age.
Building and maintaining our community
My husband ensures that we spend time with people around us. Social connections are crucial for our and our family's well-being.
Over the years that I have been fortunate to be a parent with my husband, I have learned that we both have a role to play. Both of our roles are equally important and enrich our son's life.
Happy Father's Day to my husband!!!
