Father's day is around the corner, and it’s a time when we all reflect on the influence of fathers on our own individual lives and on society as a whole. The role a father plays in a child’s life is absolutely formative for the child. Dads can symbolize safety, strength, kindness and dependability for some while others struggle with a dad who left wounds through neglect or abuse. At Kids ‘R’ Kids of Spring on Kuykendahl, we understand the pressure so many men face to provide for their families and we love and support all of the fathers who are committed to loving their families through the gift of their presence, not just their paycheck.

In a society where a man is often viewed as the sum of his paycheck, the pressure to “measure up” can be crushing, and it takes great strength of character to be present at home with your children. So this Father’s Day we wanted to give you some creative ways your child can enjoy some time with their dad – not just on Father’s Day but on any day!

Take a look at these “Daddy Date” ideas and find a good fit for your child. The best rule of the thumb for quality time is this: It’s not what you’re doing, it’s who you’re doing it with. Make it fun, keep it simple, and celebrate dad!
