Why do children usually love mommies more than they love their daddies?
It’s not me saying that, blame the answers one Yahoo! question got after a user asked “why is it that people tend to love their mum more than their dad?” Here are some pretty useful replies to that:
Let the blog daddy teach you how to do it right. Here are some ideas for you to make the best out of this parent-offspring relationship and making your dad feel proud of having a son/daughter like you.
We always seem busy with our friends. Plans with buds excite you so much you find it hard sleeping through the night, huh? Why isn’t that the case when your dad comes into play? Let your dad spend a wonderful day with you. Not much, but at least twice a month, no matter how busy you are, you need to make sure you give your daddy some time to be happy.
Take him shopping. Take him to a movie. Go have a classy dinner and bring in some surprises by calling his old buddies along. That would surely make his day memorable and he will be more than happy to call you his child! So what if mum has gone shopping and you are alone with your dad? Isn’t it better to go out with him rather than sitting in your own separate rooms?
Articles usually share the most useful tip at the end, but that’s not the case with the blog daddy. I had to make sure you read the most useful one first. At least you are following me till now. Good. Read on please.
Say what? Your mommy is gone out of city for a week? So your dad is alone at his place, isn’t he? What a wonderful opportunity to spend quality time with him! Give him a call right now and head over to his place. Tell him you’re going to stay there with him for a day. At least for starters, spending a day isn’t that bad!
Get to sit with him, talk to him and watch movies or maybe play a nice indoor game together. You know, let the man win – he has the experience and the vision to raise you, after all. Plan the day wiping out all your favorites and doing what he likes to do best in free time. Take him over to your place for a day or two; provide him with a changed environment.
In fact, try to find such moments when you and your dad can spend some quality time together. Have lots of fun, but the way he likes it. Even though you may find it “boring” in the beginning, you will get used to his way of doing things soon. If not, well, at least you brought him a smile – now that’s worth something.
The kitchen is where all the fun lies, to be brutally honest. I believe that if you have a little experience cooking or better yet, if your dad does; you both can spend an excellent couple of hours in the kitchen. Let the old man do the talking while you cook. Play some nice music along and grind along the perky beat.
You both can cook some dinner and invite other siblings of yours over! That counts for a family gathering; what an epic idea! Let your daddy know how loving his family is. Just be around him and let that kitchen feel like the most pleasant place to work.
Newspapers usually have some new recipes, let alone the internet. Pulling out by saying “I don’t know how to cook” is not valid anymore. You can even get video tutorials for 10-minuters and some delicious snacks that you both can have for the time being. Everybody can go get a big hammy from McDonald’s but that’s not fun, is it?
We’re all settled with finding happiness in the small daily life thingies – now it’s time to find something epic and far bigger! Every dad had an interest that he has compromised over the years for one reason or the other. As his offspring, it is your responsibility you find that lost interest out, convince your dad and bring that lost interest/hobby back to let him enjoy life to the fullest!
Perhaps your dad liked pulling some strings on an acoustic guitar or beat some drums and blow the chalk off? Or perhaps he was more of a debater and liked to express his opinions to a wide audience. You need to jot down all his old-school hobbies/interests and see to it that you provide him a chance to relive that interest again.
Gather old friends of his and give their band a reunion. If not possible, at least get him settled for those guitar lessons again or ask him to teach you how to beat drums like crazy! For a debater, the school is the best place to go. Get him enrolled as a teacher and let him connect to a far wider audience to let his thoughts out.
Some dads find their current interests far more engaging than the old ones, becoming a writer perhaps? Look up for a topic and convince him to write a short story or a book! Help him setting the plot/plan and let him know you are there with him through all walks of life.
Write a song together and get it recorded. Go on a hiking trip together and spend the night cooking marshmallows over the bonfire. Get your family loaded up and hit the mall to get your dad a new look! You know, anything that clicks the mind and sounds like fun. Many fathers may be reluctant to the idea at first, but once you try and blend them in – they are going to agree at a point in time for shizzle!
This is actually where your creativity flows in. Get him paint a nice portrait or refer him to a nice jazz club to let him reveal his fine musical taste. All fathers have spent their lives in that three-piece suit; it’s time you get your daddy to do something else.
Remember, it’s not about just sitting in front of the television hoping just a little chatter can help him laugh and spend quality time with you. The time you both spend just sitting on the couch is everyday life – you don’t need useful tips for that. I wanted for you to have something planned up for at least the weekends if not the whole week.
The blog daddy had to have something for the daddies. Do let me know how you found my efforts helping you out in spending some memorable time with your daddy-o. Spread love, talk love. Till next time, ciao!
