Are you a special dad?
“Any man can be a Father but it takes someone special to be a Dad” ~ Anne Geddes
This Sunday we’ll celebrate Father’s Day. A few of my coaching clients have a family and they are enjoying fatherhood with their kids. Their biggest struggle is finding QUALITY time to dedicate to their children and make their relationship special. They want to be remembered as “best dad”, they want to inspire their sons and daughters to have a meaningful and purposeful life, they want to be present during their most important achievements.
My father belonged to that old generation where mothers were the ones supposed to raise the children, but I have great memories of him. I remember my dad as my anchor, he was always present when I needed help. He taught me the value of integrity, honesty, the meaning of respect, the beauty of music (he was a jazz musician during his spare time) and, most of all, to work hard for what I wanted. He never spoiled me, he always pushed me to earn the things I longed for. And I will always be thankful because all that helped me grow as a person and succeed as a professional.
What memories do you have about your father? How do you find the balance as a father? How can you be a special dad? What are you teaching to your children?
Happy Father’s Day!
