Three Simple Steps to Being a Great Dad

I was carrying Kai up this mountain trail so his legs could take a break when the idea for this blog post hit me.  Being a great dad is more about just being there than anything else.  Here's three simple steps to get started:


Lead by example - Kids watch our every move to see how we handle life. It is amazing how much they imitate their own parents. Interestingly, you don't have to tell them how to act; they will simply do what you do. If you have a positive approach to life, they will have the same.

Stay fit - Eat right and exercise and they will follow your lead. You will also be able to handle all the crazy curveballs life throws at you much better, enabling you to be better prepared to be there for them when they need it.  But most importantly, it will enable you to...

Carry them when they need it - Kids can't face the world alone. Whether it's a serious illness or just a rock in their shoe, being able to carry them (either financially, emotionally, or even physically) is a big deal.  It can give them the help they need when it makes the biggest difference.

There's a kind of magic when we share sports and adventures with our sons! :-)
