What is an awesome dad?

An awesome dad:

  • Someone who shows empathy both within his family and to those outside
  • Assumes the child is doing the best with what they have. Even when throwing a tantrum. They aren’t trying to manipulate us any more or less than you try to manipulate your spouse when you want the nice new set of tools. Think about it.
  • Models what it means to accept every human where they are at
  • Has a growth mindset and is constantly encouraging lifelong learning
  • Helps the child learn about the world via coaching and guiding, not through shame, guilt and punishment
  • Plays with his kids

There it is. Six easy bullets to awesome dads. What would you add?
