GON Organizing for Men
Organizing for Men Become an Involved Father or Grandfather Organizing isn't just about sorting through your home or office. Getting organized means finding ways to do just about anything more efficiently and better than it was done before. Today’s organizing focus is on the importance of fatherhood, (or grand- fatherhood). Generally speaking, moms tend to be a child’s primary caregiver. This being said, the father’s role in raising a family is often just as important as the mother’s. In many cases, children who have engaged, loving and involved fathers tend to have: less behavioral problems better grades higher self-esteem, and tend to mimic and copy the same behaviors of their dad in adulthood. How can you become an involved dad (or grandfather)? Here are a few ideas... Spend time with your kids or grandkids. Children are a huge personal investment. The more time you spend with them, the more they can learn from you. And don’t be surprised if you learn a thing or two from them! Share conversations whenever possible...and enjoy every moment of them. Listen. Moms and dads are quick to tell children what to do. However, listening is sometimes more important than talking. When the kids have something to tell you, stop, look at them, and listen. When they’re done, look at them and give them a genuine response back. Simply muttering, “uh huh” or “that's nice” sends a message of disinterest. To gain a loving relationship, try to make an effort to communicate and show you're thoroughly interested in what they have to say. Plus, as children get older, their problems and challenges tend to become bigger…which is when you really want them to come and talk to you as much as possible. Walk the walk. It's one thing to “talk the talk,” and another to live by example. For instance, if you preach to the kids the importance of reading and schoolwork, then let them see you reading at home. If you want your children to live active and healthy lives, then participate with them in a game of catch or tennis. Visit Our Get Organized Now! Store to See All of Our GON Products
