“Every dad, if he takes time out of his busy life to reflect upon his fatherhood, can learn ways to become an even better dad.” — Jack Baker
Isn’t this so true? I find that sometimes, I need to take a step back, look at life, and think about how I can be a better dad to each one of my daughters. And with another on the way, I am thinking about this even more.
Ask yourself today, “how can I be a better dad to my kids?”
Last Week’s Stories
This last week, we had one submission. The beauty of this submission is how important communication is for relationships. This article helps articulate this so well, it was curated in Relationships here on Medium!
Head on over, read through it, clap, highlight, and comment. Give our writer some love!
“We communicate in ways that are multi-faceted, complex, politically correct, and often intended to conform to an “offense free” society. This might work well when engaging in philosophical, political, or academic discourses, but when it comes to intimate relationships, such ambiguity can be a disaster. During Coronavirus lockdown, ambiguous communication is even more problematic because of already high levels of anxiety, frustration, and fear.”
This Week’s Dad Joke
“Don’t trust atoms. They make up everything!”
Prompt of the Week
This week, at the end of May, it is nearly summertime. At least for me and my family. (Though as I write this we are watching The Grinch on Netflix…) Anyway, I think we can start getting into a summertime groove.
This week’s prompt:
Write about a summertime memory you had with your dad or with your kids.
As always, you can learn more about our Submission Guidelines, and I tend to get a post up or a comment to your post within 48 hours.
Thank you for reading this week’s Dad Hammer Times. We look forward to your submissions and are thankful that you hang with us to learn more about being better parents.
Stay safe out there and be sure to make the most of your time with your family during this time!
