As a pediatrician, one of the big things that I KNOW to be true from my many years of practice, is how children perceive their parents – particularly, how they view their fathers.
Listening to kids and then talking to their fathers, I can see a huge disconnect:
Fathers see themselves in one way, but their children sees him in an entirely different way.
When I ask fathers if they feel like a hero, most of them say, “No, of course not. I’ve never really done anything brave or heroic.” But if you ask a child who their hero is, they will most likely say “My dad!”.
To a small child, their father is larger than life. DADS – you must understand the fact that your children view you very differently than you view yourself.
