What makes a real man?

A real man in today's society has many traits. If you ask anyone they would probably come up with a different list depending on what you find attractive, if you're a woman, or what you admire, if you're a man.

One of the most desirable traits is if he can show himself as a family man. I have a good friend of mine that would never allow his girlfriend to push the pram (stroller) for his daughter. He said that he loved the attention he got from showing he was good to his daughter.

A lot of my female friends find a family man really attractive. A real man knows without a shadow of a doubt that his children are a true gift from God.

He is a teacher by example, he is the shining light in a child's world with how strong he is and how he protects them all from harm.

A true man shows his children a true devotion that will only enhance a child's confidence as they will see and feel how much they are loved.

"Awww, that is the cutest thing ever," my friend said one day as we walked in the park and a man was playing with his child, laughing and giggling with him all the way.

Being a great dad isn't the easiest job in the world. There will always be times when you think they deserve better, or at least you could have done better for them. I know there will be plenty of first time dads who read this and many dads who are there who will relate to the advice that comes next:

  1. Show an interest in everything they do. You need to spend quality time with your children. Drop everything for your children. Life is for living and you won't live more than when you hear your child laugh.
  2. Protect them. As a dad, one of your main roles is protector. Child-proof your house, teach them how to be safe themselves (for example by using your seatbelt etc.) Also make sure you protect them by having life insurance, car insurance, a will etc to protect them even if the worse happened.
  3. Show them you love them. Praise them, play with them, share magical moments with them, hug them, kiss them (never be scared to show them effection) and most of all talk and listen to them - this will do wonders for their self esteem. Bond with your child as soon as possible. Change nappies (diapers), do feeds, bath them, rock them to sleep in the middle of the night , read to them and put them to bed. All these traditional 'mom' things are ideal times for a real man to bond with his child.
  4. Read to them. This is not only great bonding time, but also one of the most important things you can do as a father for you child. Reading is a fundamental skill they will need for their entire life, the earlier you teach them about it the better. They will defenetly achieve better in school because of this quality time you spend together.
  5. Be good to their mom. Whether you are with her or not, you should always treat their mom with respect. Do not contradict her or fight with her in front of the children. Do not say anything nasty about her or disagree with what she does for them. This is not because she is always right, it is because your children's self identity is attached to how people view her (and yourself). Anything bad said about her and they will be offended too and upset because, in a way, you are critisising them too. Plus they love her to bits, like they love you, so they don't want to hear it. Show your children how a man treats a woman, and she will expect the same from a man who enters her life, and he will know how to treat a woman who enters his.

A real man is a great role model to any child. And children need great role models.

A woman can't replace a real man and what he can do for his child so all that needs to be done now is to make sure you are a real man and make sure you do your best for your child.
