One of the best ways to do just this is by starting “Daddy Day” or “Dad Day”, depending on the age of your child. Daddy Day is when you schedule a set day and time each week or month to do something together, consistently. It can be anything from making breakfast together every other Sunday morning, leaving work a few hours early every Wednesday (if possible) to be there when they get home from school,or simply a movie night on the 15th of every month. The activities you can do together are endless, and can be different every Daddy Day. Some more fun ideas can be trying a new restaurant, sampling every ice cream place in your area, playing your child’s favorite sport, or taking a class together to learn something new. The key to Daddy Day is having a set time each month so your child can look forward to it. You can discuss what you are going to do beforehand, surprise them or they can even surprise you. Making it a ritual has the added benefit of showing your children that you are making time just for them.
