For myself, I wish my dad is less stringent and has more patience with me from young and willing to chat with me more often. I know he loves me but he will not show from his face and at times he will deny it. For my husband, as a father to his children, I think he does a pretty good job. He is willing to take time to spend quality time with each kid. He always try his best to interact with the kids despite he is very tired coming back from work. Each night, without fail he will tuck the kids into bed himself. In general, I feel to be a good father, communication between himself and kids are very important to achieve common understanding.

By loving your wife. The best thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother. With a loving family, children will be nourished and grow well. Even though they may make faces when you kiss each other, they will feel comforted that their parents love each other and will be more secure and confident. Quality time is important as well. Take note of their interests and share hobbies with them. Don't restrict them too much, but guide them with proper values.

A great father is always there. He doesn't choose which baby duty to do or leave out for mummy to handle. He doesn't think of innovative ways to escape from his responsibilities. By always being there in a child's life, your little one will have a more fruitful family unit. Most importantly, a good father loves unconditionally – and that means showering his wife and the little one with loads of love and laughter!

We should make time for our kids and take the time to put in extra care. We should more understanding their feeling and thinking. Though planning "daddy time" for our kids each week is a great way to strengthen the relationship, you should also try to be there for important milestones in their lives.

I think the father vs mother dynamic comes into play. As parents it's more important to function as a team than as 2 separate camps. I mean, unless it's a broken family, should strive to be that way? But i think being a good father is also about evolving. It's a different kind of father at different stages of your child's life. Be the right one, and it's all good hopefully

By wanting to be a good father, you are already one. I believe there is no perfect formula to being a good parent. We all learn and make mistakes along the way. Moreover, every child is unique so what works on others may not works on you. As long as you try your best and always have the interest of your child at heart, you are a good father!

Totally -truly, madly deeply pamper your child daddy...if its a girl, treat her like a princess so that she knows to look for a father figure in the man she loves. If it's a boy...yeah pamper him too but be the best buddy you can and teach him to win the hearts of women with acceptance and not coercion..;)
