Dads, sometimes a child’s disobedience is a reminder to you that you need to show your child more love. After you have dealt with the disobedience in a biblical way, find a way to let your child know you love them.

Dads, as we enter into the season of Thanksgiving, point out to your kids the ways in which they are not suffering.

If for example, you have enough money for food and lodging, remember that others don’t and this is a gift from God.

Or if no one in your family has a chronic disease or lives with chronic pain, remember that others do and health is a gift from God,

Or if, as the weather gets cold, you have a warm place to live and sleep, remember that others don’t and that your home is a gift from God.

Dads, can I recommend showing your kids the film, “The Man From Snowy River”?

It’s a good movie.

Dads, if it’s been awhile since you did it, say something nice about one of your children while that child is listening.

Dads, a child (just like anyone) can be fooled by both the emotion of pride and the emotion of shame. Work to prevent this from happening to them.

Dads, teach your kids this idea:  The smartest person in the world will not succeed if he can’t organize his life.

Dads, consider camping at Itasca.

Dads, some children think they don’t really need salvation because they’re good enough, others think they are too fallen into sin to ever be loved by God. You should find out where they are.

They both need the Gospel, but perhaps an emphasis of the most helpful aspects of the Gospel (from where they stand right now) will more quickly bring them closer to God.



Dads, be advised that many forms of legitimate creativity that your kids may engage in will, realistically speaking, cause messes.

Don’t force them to stop because of it.

Dads, before you throw away an old toothbrush, use it to clean something that a toothbrush is uniquely qualified to clean – a drain, a pipe, a corner, …. other items may come to mind.

Don’t throw away a toothbrush without employing it in this way.
