My wife and I now have 3 kids. And our firstborn is Ava, my first daughter. And I’m very conscious about how I act around her and am very concerned about and in tune hopefully with how I can be a positive influence on her as a dad. She sees everything I do. She picks up my sayings, my actions. So I think that it’s important that I pay attention to the way that I interact with my wife, not that I’m not always nice to her. But I am paying attention to that. I think that she notices the way that we interact with each other. And if it’s in a kind and loving place I think that sticks with her. Aside from that, I think a lot of it is being encouraging and loving and practicing patience and understanding, which were not my forte. It’s an acquired skill. But I think those things are all important in playing a positive male role for your daughter. Beyond just the interaction between me and my wife I think another thing that’s really important is to be encouraging and supportive and loving to my daughter. One of the biggest things for me is to really focus on being patient, which is not my forte, but it’s an acquired skill that I’ve come to find over the last few years. But I think all of those things combined help me to be a positive male role model for my daughter.
