Top Five Ways in which Dads are Different: Conclusion

Children really need both parents. While moms may be able to
handle almost all the tasks, dads are naturally better at handling certain
tasks. Most moms are better at care taking, protection, and nurturing. Besides,
they can certainly also learn how to teach self-esteem and self-value through
attitude, challenge, and determination. However, dads tend to be naturally better
at setting up and facing the challenges that teach confidence and courage. Like
the moms, they can also learn how to nurture, protect, and care for children.
However, learning all the skills is difficult and takes a lot of hard work and
determination. It is easier to recognize the gender based natural talents and
complement each other in the task of raising kids with well-rounded
personalities.

Top Five Ways in which Dads are Different: Having Fun

Moms teach kids to stick to a routine while dads inspire
them to be more flexible. Goofing off seems to come easier to dads. Watching
dad feel free enough to be wacky, without concentrating on schedules or on how
long it takes food to cook, can be a valuable lesson for kids. Moms still bear
most of the burden for making sure the house is clean, dinner is on the table,
and the kids are on schedule. Dads teach kids to take life less seriously and
have some serious fun.

Dads are different in the way they nurture and express their
affection, and kids love it. For example, a dad may play in a puddle with his
kids—it’s his way of telling his kids that he enjoys their kind of fun because
he loves them.

What do dads often do with kids different from mom? They go
outside and play ball, build a model or some furniture, repair a car, play a
computer game, wrestle around on the floor, and help kids find creative
approaches to tackle their homework. All of these activities, if done with
compassion and respect, build a child’s self-confidence.

Moms generally rely on dads to handle discipline. Dads have
traditionally been associated with disciplining kids with punishments. While
most modern dads may not use punishments to discipline kids, they are still
responsible for teaching their kids how to be disciplined. Modern methods of
discipline recognize that kids are not born with an agenda to make trouble for
their parents; that they are trying their best to please their parents.
However, being children, they fail. Modern day dads recognize that it’s okay to
fail and to use failure to pave ones way to success.

Top Five Ways in which Dads are Different: Handling Responsibility

Taking responsibility means taking on a personal commitment
to perform a task and not blaming circumstances or others for ones failures. It
further means being honest, diligent, and courageous enough to stand by
principles. Dads inspire and challenge kids to take on responsibilities and to
take responsibility for failure, if any.

Dads also teach their kids how to handle money. While
schools may teach children how to count, it is left to the dad to help their
kids to take responsibility for their finances.

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.
