Cool Dad?

Thanks to John for this one. These things are always of questionable accuracy, but this one seems to have hit the nail on the head for me. I’m not really interested in being “cool”. I’m interested in being a good father. Don’t get me wrong, I’m goofy and have lots of fun with the kids. But in the end, you do need to have reasonable rules and structure.

You Will Not Be a Cool Parent

And that’s pretty okay. While your kids may not think of you as a friend, they will respect you.You know that kids need discipline and structure, and you’re not afraid to give it to them.Just be careful that your strictness doesn’t lead to rebellion.

It’s good to have standards and rules, but you don’t need to have an iron fist when enforcing them.
