Being a dad is one of the most rewarding and important roles you can have in life. Children benefit when dads are responsive to them, warm, loving and involved with their lives.  Evidence shows neglect can have lifelong implications.    

From time to time, your child is going to do things you do or don’t like. He’ll do things that are dangerous. He’ll do things you don’t want him to do again. The consequence or what happens right after makes the behavior more or less likely to happen again.
