Top Five Ways in which Dads are Different: Inspiring Self-Confidence

Moms inspire kids to protect themselves, while dads motivate
them to take risks. If kids won’t learn to take risks, they will not learn
anything new. Consequently, this will stunt their growth. Challenges are very
important for growth. A dad’s adventurous nature helps kids explore their
potential and challenges them to grow. Dads teach their kids to face failure
bravely and learn from it. This inspires them with self-confidence and
independence in performing their tasks.

Moms generally sort out all their kids’ problems. Dads guide
them to sort out their own problems, thus helping them prepare for the real
world.

Dads symbolize strength for most kids. Therefore, having
their dad around gives them a sense of security.
