Watching television, you could get the impression that Dads are bumbling morons that are regularly outsmarted by their wives and children. If a TV Dad does manage, once in a blue moon, to get something right, it is usually by accident. By the end of the show, if Dad is lucky, his stupidity becomes endearing.
Obviously, what it takes to be a good father is a very subjective thing and everyone’s opinions differ on the matter. For some, it’s spending a lot of time with your children, for others, the mere act of having the title of father is enough to make you a good one. Below, a few general characteristics are outlined that are generally thought to be the the things that make a good father.
The winter months can be busy with holiday activities and family gatherings. However, after the novelty of the presents wear off a parent is faced with the question of what to do with their children to keep them busy. The winter months offer many opportunities for fathers to spend time with their children. There are many activities that will keep children busy outdoors while providing physical activity and fresh air.

It has often been said that anyone can be a dad, but it takes a real man to be a good father.
