So I’ve handed out some parenting advice before to one of my colleagues. Today, we chatted about him joining the ranks of fatherhood any day. I had more advice – even though I got annoyed when people constantly gave me advice when they found out I was going to be a dad soon. 🙂
Advice for being a dad, or questions to ask yourself when your baby is doing something new:
- Is this a safety issue?
- Will this end in forming bad habits?
If no on both, try to talk to them about what’s happening and teach them something new.
If yes, correct the issue (or clean up the mess) as best as you can.
Then, always end by making a funny face or weird noise to go for laughs and smiles.
This has worked well for me so far.
