Somedays you may not feel it, but being a dad is a vital role!
More and more research is showing that a dad’s involvement in the life of their child is absolutely critical to their development and future success. But dads are one of the least supported members of the family in our culture. So what’s a dad to do?
This FREE ebook, written by five First Things First dads, will give you simple, practical steps that you can take in your life to help guide your child’s growth. Such as how to…
- be a part of your child’s caretaking
- take care of yourself
- talk to your child
- play on their level
- be silly with your child
- and more!
is your family mindful?
Our attention is so often focused on what happened yesterday or what will happen tomorrow—we miss the right now.Sometimes we get jarred out of the present by our schedules, cellphones, and to-do lists. We often fail to stop and savor what we are doing with the people we are doing it with.
We aren’t “in” the moment if we’re not being mindful in our family. As a family, you might be together, but you don’t connect.
Practicing mindfulness can help your family experience less stress and tension and focus more on the joy of being together.
