What is a good father?
They are sharing equally in household chores, helping with caring for the kids, and with their activities, reflecting respect and loving-kindness towards the wife/partner/the children’s mother by scheduling date nights and eating dinner with the family at least once a week. Kind and patience with your partner and children. Easy to talk too. They share their life experiences, leading by example, or what not to do and support their family in many ways.

Set up healthy family boundaries:
1. Set family guidelines of what is acceptable and what is not.
2. Awareness of what is happening and discussing it compassionately together with solutions.
3. Make a conscious decision to stop unacceptable behaviors, so everyone feels safe, loved and protected.
