Family at the beachOne of the things I have learned over the ten years I have been hosting the Fatherhood site at About.com is that fathers are very different.  They may be united in their commitment to family, but their cultures, interests, careers and personal philosophies differ in many ways.  But just about every committed dad I know hopes for a better connection with his kids.

Kids are just as diverse as their fathers, even within a single given family, so our approaches as dads have to be as unique as our children are.  This list of ten behaviors that will help dads better connect to their children is certainly not all inclusive; every child needs a unique approach.  But usually one or more of these will help stimulate some thought about what a dad might consider when he is feeling a little disconnected or distant from one of his children.
