Good or bad, stories involving our fathers leave a lasting memory.

We remember how he helped us – or didn’t. We remember his interactions with mom and other siblings. We remember how he was there – or not.

We want him to see our small successes. I see it in my seven-year-old’s eyes while she’s standing on first base after smacking the softball out of the infield. “Dad! Dad! Dad! Did you see the hit?”

Thumbs up!

And then when she jogs back to the dugout, I make sure to tell her again: “Awesome hit.”

Whether dads are traveling for work or are looking for the next endeavor, there are ways to make time for our children – if we want to.

Sometimes it can be the children that are overscheduled. I remember one time when my oldest had practices in two different sports at the same time.  Driving them from practice to practice can also be great for bonding and one-on-one conversation.

Facetime while on the road before bedtime keeps families connected.

Make it to that game on time!

Be there and listen.

Be there and support.

Teach, but also recognize.

The other day, one of my daughters brought something to me while I was already sitting in the car in the garage. Before she moved, she asked: “Can I go around the car before  you back out, please?”

Yes. And how impressive that she would think about asking first. Very safety conscious.

While Father’s Day is supposed to be about the dads, every day is about our kids and how we can help them live the best lives they can possibly have now and later as adults.

We remember the shared stories forever.
