3 ways to bring you closer together with your son

How to strengthen your father-son relationship

The father-son relationship might be one of the deepest bonds that can be shared between two people. There's a seemingly unspoken admiration that sons have for their dads, and fathers are almost always proud of their boys.

If you want to get even closer to one another, here are some fun activities that can bolster your relationship.

1. Go fishing
One of the most timeless bonds between men, fathers could take their sons fishing. It can be a fun and relaxing activity, putting the two of you into a quiet area removed from society. It can also help you teach him about patience and discipline, as it takes both of these attributes to enjoy fishing all day.

2. Build a model rocket
Putting in the work to build a rocket might be a great way to bring the two of you closer together. While you're building it, you can tell your son all about the various moon landings and exciting adventures of astronauts into space. In the end, your son may become so interested that he may even want to pursue a career in engineering!

3. Have a catch
Next to fishing, throwing a baseball with your son might be the most impactful activity you can do together. There's a reason grown men cry at the end of Field of Dreams, and it's because having a catch is a big part of the father and son dichotomy.
