Father’s Day

June 16th, 2009 / 1 Comment

The flowers shops are packed on Mother’s Day; the phone lines are overloaded on Mother’s Day. Father’s Day? It doesn’t set any records. Dads are usually not the sentimental type, they are not the squeaky wheel that gets the grease. But of course, they would love some attention too, on Father’s Day. Here are a […]

Can parents avoid making kids angry?

April 1st, 2009 / 1 Comment

The Bible tells fathers not to irritate and provoke their children to anger (Ephesians 6). Children are naturally selfish, undisciplined and irrational. They want to play all the time, they don’t want to share, and they rarely act rationally. It seems to me that to be a good parent, given the job of  teaching our […]

Today’s article is written by Peter Aldin, founder of Great Circle Life Coaching.

She takes care of feeding the children, buying their clothes, taking them to school, etc. Thus, it is easy for dads to leave the raising […]

It’s a guy thing

I read in a magazine that a dad and his son took the slow way to relocate from Massachusetts to California for a job change. They took a 3-week road trip across the country, and stopped for as many baseball games as they can along the way. When my son was young, my husband went […]

Dads and their daughters

October 22nd, 2007 / 1 Comment

I have read that the most important relationship for a girl is her relationship with her dad. The father exemplifies to her what a man should be. He shows her how a man should treat a lady. The way he relates to her even has the power to determine her view of what God her […]

Reading together

June 25th, 2007 / No Comments

When my children were little, we loved to read together out loud. We visited the library several times a week to return books and check out a stack of new ones. When is your favorite time to read together with your children? I read to my children in the middle of the afternoon when it’s […]

Father’s Day

June 18th, 2007 / No Comments

The memories I have of my father are generally ones that involves lecturing, or discipline. He is a typical non-expressive, stern father. While my father and I have a good relationship, I am not particularly close to him. I wished he was more warm and fuzzy. But now I understand that in some respects, the […]
