5 Biggest Mistakes Dads Make

Dads tend to make mistakes when they are entrusted with the responsibilities which are usually carried out by moms. Let us take a look at 5 biggest parenting mistakes that dads tend to make.

Be they are the first time Dads or the fathers of two children, dads are not always good in handling their kids. Men cannot rear kids as good as women do. Here are five of the most common mistakes that every Dad does when it come to keeping their kids for some time when the mom is away for some reasons, have a look at this.

Losing Your Cool Every Now and Then

Most men lack patience which is a vital thing when dealing with kids. Losing your temper and yelling at kids make the situations worst. Kids get scared and they try to keep a distance whenever their dads are at home. This creates an invisible barrier between the father and the child which creates a lot of misunderstanding.

Buying Too Much

Most dads think that if they buy their kids a lot of stuffs like toys, food and chocolates then they can easily pacify their kids and the kids will also be happy. They can be the best fathers because their kids would love them because they know they will get everything that they ask for to their fathers. This is a kind of bribing and you will be ruining your child’s future if you do not stop such kinds of pampering to your kids.

Underestimating Your Baby’s Acceleration

This is the most common mistakes that dads do, leaving the kids unattended while completing their own work. Dads expect their kids to sit at one place where they are placed but unfortunately dads do not have the idea how fast the kids can move or crawl to a place that might be very dangerous as kids have no sense of danger.

The baby may attempt to crawl down the staircase and hurt himself while you are totally engrossed with the paper work of your office or working on the computer; having no idea what your kid might have done within that few minutes. So, whenever you are entrusted with keeping your kids for a while always keep a close watch on him even when he is sitting quietly and playing with his toys at that very place where you had placed him.

Often Forgetting to Apply the Brakes on the Pram

As the dads are not used to keeping kids and taking them out on a pram, they commit this mistakes too often. Once you commit this mistake you may have to repent for the rest of your life. So always be double sure to apply the brakes of the pram while you take your kid out with you on a walk.

Fall Asleep While Holding your Baby

It is very obvious that after the full day’s hectic work schedule at office you feel very tired and want to go to bed as early as possible. But when you are given the responsibility of holding your baby for a few minutes try to remain awake. Some dads unknowingly fall asleep while holding their baby in their arms. Trying to make their kids sleep, they fall asleep themselves while the baby is still wide awake and can crawl down from your arms. Or if the baby is too small to crawl he may fall down from your lap and get hurt which may be very fatal. You will be held responsible for all these that had happened unintentionally, but such a loss is irreparable and you will repent for this for the rest of your life and feel guilty.

So dads be very careful while you are with your baby, do not feel ashamed to learn the rules of child rearing.

Dads are also unaware of buying right things for kids. They end up wasting money most of the times.
