In this retelling of the "Aesop's Fable", a smart wolf is too clever for his own good. When he pretends to be a sheep so he can find his supper, things do not go as planned.
This is a list of a thousand tips and bits of advice for fathers. I am a father of two sons, one is 19, the other is 7. I was a single father throughout my first son's life until I met my wife. I've been a stay at home dad since the little guy was born, as well as home-schooling him for kindergarten and first grade. Most of my tips are common sense.-Have patience, and then when you have none left, somehow have more patience.-Don't just tell them you love them, constantly show your children and your partner how much you do.-Action always speaks louder than words. -Teach your children, don't leave it up to babysitters and schools to do it.-Be the parent, be the grown up. Sometimes it's a difficult, messy job, but it's yours not theirs. -Keep family at the center of everything, closely surrounded by friends. -There is never a reason to be bored. That includes yourself.-Show respect, give respect, teach respect. -Have fun! Try to remember what it was like to be their age and commit to imagination right along side them!-Take care of yourself, set good examples of healthy living. Instill that in your children. -Practice unconditional love and awareness in your daily lives as a family. This is my very honest, humorous, and straight forward guide to help out any dad looking for answers or a head's up to the many questions that come along with having children. I have learned a tremendous amount about being a good father, and husband, and how to be a good man in general, along the way. As well as a million other things I never even thought I'd want or need to know! There is no doubt that raising children is a serious, tremendous, and important job. But it is also filled with more joy and laughter and excitement than anything else I have ever done or come across! Enjoy, and Happy Fathering!Originally published in fifty pieces on my blog, justshad.wordpress.com
