Be there, and care. That’s it. As a father and now a grandfather the best advice I can give new dads and parents is be there and care. When a kid sees you at a dance recital, wrestling match, spelling bee, or anything that you can do to support them in is what’s important. When they break rules, or get in trouble, just be there and show them you care. Discipline and encouragement are equally good to show you are there and care.
That’s all I have.
