Have You Got A Puppy?

If the answer is no, then you already know what you need to be doing. Getting a puppy is one of the best things you can do, whether you’re looking to earn some dad points or not. If you don’t have a dog at all, then you’re truly missing out on something special. But looking after a puppy is hard, there’s just so many things to consider. From leather dog collars to chain collars, from a cage to a bed, from puppy food to toys, you have to think about buying it all. But most importantly, you have to think about the impact this will have on your children’s lives. They truly will gain a best friend for life, and watching them grow up with a dog that becomes their whole life is amazing.

Getting Fully Involved In Their Life

Now this is something that not all dads actually do. You might be there for the fun side of things, but it’s so important that you’re there for everything else. You have to be the one listening to all of the stories about their day, and actually getting excited about it. You have to be the firm hand to tell them when they’re wrong, but also to show them what’s right in life. Your child is either going to be a mom lover or a dad lover, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t show them throughout their life, no matter how old they are, that you’re someone they can trust, and someone they can tell everything. We promise you that this will come in handy when they’re older!

Dedicated Fun Days

Once a week, you need to make time for a dedicated fun day. Even if that day is just playing made up games in the garden, it’s so important that they know they can have fun with you. So pick a day of the weekend, and dedicate it to pure fun, whether it be as a family, or just you and your children. This will definitely give you dad points if you’re the one coming up with all of the games.
