A dad has many jobs through the years

As a dad, you have to wear many hats. And over the years, those hats change. Here is a quick look at how a dad’s many jobs change over the course of being a dad (of at least what I imagine)…

When you have a toddler:
– toy repairman
– toy car mechanic
– financial planner
– story teller
– cartoon expert
– monster fighter
– comforter
– superman

When you have elementary age:
– math expert
– homework coach
– chauffeur
– wrestling opponent
– friend adviser
– financial adviser
– ball team coach

When you have a teenager:
– chauffeur
– relationship expert
– money tree
– rule enforcer
– college/career adviser
– car mechanic
– listener

Even though a dad’s duties with his children changes over the years, I think there are a few things that never change.
1. Always love your wife. Model it to your children.
2. Show your children grace. It will teach them about God’s grace.
3. Love, love, love.
4. Always keep the communication lines open. Listen more than you talk.
5. Pray every day for your children.

What would you add to the list of jobs a dad has over the years?
