As a parent, it occasionally crosses my mind how well I’m raising my girls, Scarlett and Sabrina. I am especially committed to being a great father because I know what effect not having a dad in my life had on me…
Nonetheless, my daughters let me know in little ways what impact I’m making. There are signs you can look out for as well to see if you’re doing the right things.
In this article, I’m going to share a couple of ways to know you’re a great father…
Your Kids Want to Spend Time with You
A few years ago, I was sitting down to record a television interview. Then before we could get started, my oldest, Sabrina, sat down on my lap.
The gentleman conducting the interview asked Sabrina, “What makes a great dad?”
“A DAD WHO SPENDS A LOT OF TIME WITH YOU, HAS FUN WITH YOU, PLAYS WITH YOU, AND WATCHES MOVIES WITH YOU.”
Man, I will tell you what she said almost choked me up.
The fact that she values our time together lets me know I’m not doing a half-bad job at this parenting thing. That’s an indicator you’re making a difference in your kids’ lives.
Besides, I consider myself more of a kid than an adult anyways. But that doesn’t mean I let them only do things they enjoy…
Children Show Growth When a Great Father Pushes Them
During the 10X Growth Conference in 2019, I invited two of my favorite speakers to ever appear on our stage…
Sabrina and Scarlett Cardone.
While the girls initially brought the idea to me, there were points leading up to the event where they wanted to back out. However, I reminded Scarlett and Sabrina they had made a commitment and had to follow through.
Needless to say, the girls were a hit with the audience and I couldn’t have been more proud. Afterwards, I saw a visible spike in their confidence, and now they love speaking publicly.
Seeing your children develop and become more sure of themselves is a promising sign that you are a great father. At least, I take it as a decent way to measure my stats there.
Ultimately, the goal of parenting is to raise decent, contributing members of society. So if you are wondering if you are a great father or mother, you can pay attention to the indications I discussed and ask yourself honestly…
AM I SEEING THE FUTURE I WANT THE WORLD TO BECOME IN MY CHILDREN?
For me, the answer is definitely yes.
Be great so your kids’ future can be too.
