I just watched this You Tube video of country singer Rodney Atkins singing about the power that dads have over their kids. Kids, especially sons, want to be like their dads. They follow the pattern set by their fathers. I know this from experience.
I remember when my son, then a toddler, took his socks off, put them in his hand went into the kitchen and put them under the table. Why? Because that's the way I did it. I wonder if he still does that at his own home. What other things has he and his sister picked up from me?
This link is from the National Center for Fathering in Kansas, a great group that deserves a look by any guy wanting to fine tune his fathering skills.
