8 vital qualities of a good father


A father has many roles to play, all designed to enrich his life and the lives of his children. When these roles are understood and pursued with determination, his whole family is blessed.

Often the role of a father is hard to see in action. Due to the increased divorce rate and the abandoning of families, many children grow up without a father in the home. Also, there seems to be an increased effort in the media to trivialize the role of the father. Then you add the glorification of infidelity in marriage and one wonders what married life is all about. All of this combines to give an unclear picture of who a father is supposed to be.

Here is what a father is..

1.Provider-

He is a steady provider and works to see that his family has the necessities of life.

2.Protector-

He does everything in his power to keep the family safe from that which would injure or harm the family members physically, emotionally or spiritually.

3.Teacher-

He shares his knowledge and principles to help family members grow and develop.

4.Friend-

He shows kindness, compassion and interest in the family members.

5.Exemplar-

He shows by the way he lives an example of what the family stands for.

6.Disciplinarian-

He helps the children learn proper boundaries and consequences.

7.Spiritual leader-

He does his part to help establish faith in God and belief in principles of accountability to him.

8.Treats his wife like a queen-

He shows love and respect and lives totally faithful to his wife. He shares the workload as a partner with his wife.

Wow, sure you have learnt a lot!!
Becoming the father you want to be is a journey of small steps. You are never too old to learn and to change where needed. Look at the list above and Use it as a checklist to see where you are in this journey. If there are a few course corrections needed, then begin with one area and make the small changes you need to get you to where you want to be. Then progress through the other areas so you can be the father you want to be.
The changes may seem awkward at first and will require persistence. This is your personal journey - the one you have chosen and want to succeed at. It will require devoted effort.Remember"That which we persist in doing becomes easier to do." If you will remember this you will be successful in your journey to be the father you want to be.

14 Interesting Conversation Topics For Couples

1. The early days



Discuss the early days of your relationship and rediscover what drew you to each other. Which one of you made the first move? Who said “yes”- and why?

2. Hobbies


No matter how long you have known each other, common hobbies always provide much to talk about. If it’s a new relationship, discuss hobbies that your partner loved as a child. If you’ve been together for a few years, explore the possibility of doing something new. Following mutual interests helps couples to become closer, while having fun.

3. Vacations


Always a great source for conversation. You can reflect on past vacations – maybe before you knew each other – or perhaps some that you shared. And planning for future vacations provides an almost endless topic; the world is a very big place!

Anyway, conversation is important as it offers valuable pointers on what your partner likes doing best on holidays.

4. “How was your day, dear?”


An essential – and too often overlooked – conversation starter. Maybe your partner will be too tired to say much, but the very fact that there is somebody to ask the question speaks volumes about your love and support.

5. The Future


Discussions on the future make for some very interesting conversations. However, be careful if you know there are sensitive issues like kids or finances. Keep these conversations on the level of asking your partner to name five new things he/she would like to learn before turning forty/fifty/sixty and so on.

6. Food


Provided that you have common tastes, or even if you differ, you are unlikely to ever run out of delicious things to say about food. You can discuss recipes, restaurants you have been to – or would like to visit – or exotic dishes. This is potentially yet another topic without limits.

7. Photo-Albums


Unfortunately, in this age of instant digital images, the pleasure of poring over old fading photos is being lost. But if you do have some old albums they can be a great source of information and interest.

8. Yucky Stories


It’s always fun to talk about the yuckiest thing you ever had to do. It can be anything from what happened in high school chemistry class to the first time they you got completely drunk with friends.

9. Family


All families are interesting and provide endless topics for conversation. But be careful to take into account what you know about your partner’s early life. If, for example, you now that the childhood years were unhappy, maybe better to steer clear. On the other hand, perhaps your partner would welcome the opportunity to bring everything into the open. You will have to decide.

10. Erotic Fantasy
Hopefully, your relationship will be on such a level that talking about sex is not taboo. So, spice things up by talking about erotic fantasies or a crazy thoughts. Just take care that you don’t create any stress by expecting the other person to act anything out.

11. Unexpected fun
If you could just drop whatever you are doing and do something that was fun, ask your partner what would it be. This is also an interesting way of knowing what your partner enjoys doing most, especially with you.

12. Life goals and values


These change over time and something which your partner considered important may not be so any more. So ask, for example, if there was one historical event that he/she could change, what it would be. You may be surprised by a different answer from the last time this subject was discussed.

13. Material things



If you are living together, talk about what material things are important to each of you. Planning future purchases, especially expensive ones, might not seem a very romantic topic of conversation between couples, but ignoring it can create problems in a relationship. So face up to these issues while there is still time.

14. Values and ideals
Usually, having shared values and ideals is the basis for a solid relationship. Which are important to your partner? Which kind of causes does he/she support – and why.
