As a father of two girls, I'd just love to hear from women in the group about what their favorite parenting styles/memories are from their dads.

I really wanna crush it at this role haha

Our weekly park walks/trips were really special to me. It was our own personal time and made me feel like my dad really wanted to know me as a person, even at a young age. He also let me shave his head several times a week for a quarter lol. Those "barber" moments were also great memories that I only share with my dad.

Special little traditions, quality time, and being silly.

My dad would load us into the car on a warm sunny day and we would cruise around and grab burgers and milkshakes. He worked a ton but just the 2 hours on a Saturday really engaging with us and laughing was enough.

My dad died when I was really young so never got the experience. I was always so jealous when my friends would have “dates” with their dad (basically just one-on-one bonding time). Also love my daughter and my husband rough housing. She’s only 2 but basically already have very special/ different relationships with each of us

like

Also. Take care of yourself! My dad died at 60 from a heart attack and never got to meet my kids. I think black men dying young is far too common so make sure to work out, eat right, and minimize alcohol so that you are around for your girls for an long time!

My dad always has these little sayings that I remember. I thought he was the smartest person in the world, so I clung to every word. Also he was/is extremely low key and rational, to the point he never yelled or raised his voice. Even spankings were a conversation followed by a choice of consequences lol. I think his consistency and being present are what I cherish the most.

like

I loved that I got to go fishing, to 49ers football games and wrestle and roughhouse with him like one of the boys. He doted on me and spoiled me but I clearly knew my boundaries and his expectations . As long as I handled my business there was nothing he wouldn’t do for me. He modeled how to advocate for myself and gave me the freedom to make mistakes. His mantra “stay prayed up”.
