    Giving them wings My twin daughters got their drivers license this year. This is something most teenagers eagerly look forward to; fathers often do not. Even six months later, I still feel a sense of relief when I hear the garage door open, signaling their safe arrival home. Why explaining 'why' is important Statements such as, “Great Job!” and “Don’t do that!” are used frequently by fathers as a way to offer positive and negative feedback respectively to their kids. Clarify views on money When you ask yourself what you want to teach your children about money, your answer is likely to be "a lot.” Clarifying your own thinking about money and what you specifically want to teach your children can be very helpful. Building projects build relationships, too As a dad who is pretty poor with his hands, I was concerned when my middle son asked me to build a toolbox with him from blueprints he found in a children's book.

Author and speaker, Van Crouch, encourages men to become better dads.
Welcome Strategic Fathering is a site that deals with embracing the call of our Heavenly Father and moving in His purposes for us as men. It is a passion and a vision I believe God has deposited in my heart.
My prayer is that this site will encourage your heart to become all the Heavenly Father wants you to be.
I believe it begins with us allowing the Father to love us as sons, getting to that place where we hear Him call our name, knowing the pleasure He takes in us. There is approval when the Father calls our name, not shame. There is loving correction when He calls our name, not condemnation. There is acceptance when He calls our name, not rejection. When we as fathers dive into that reality, we can be all He wants us to be. Practical - Purposeful - Powerful Vision

Fathers' roles
What our society has expected from fathers has changed over the course of history. There continue to be new expectations for fathers. In addition, fathers decide how they will carry out their fathering roles. Fathers may look to their own fathers as role models or they may look to other models for examples of positive parenting. These influences can leave fathers wondering, "What are the expectations of me as a father?" and "How can I meet these expectations?" Fathers can begin by focusing on how they can best meet the needs of their children. Fathers can benefit from seeking out reliable sources of parenting information to help them understand what children's needs are and how they can meet them. Research shows that fathers and mothers accomplish positive parenting in different ways. This publication describes how fathers can meet the needs of their children by applying the National Extension Parent Education Model. This model explains the important parenting practices that promote the well-being of children.

Do you have any tips on how to be a great father?
Atherton, California
In any bookstore one can find several good resources for fathers, but the most important resource of all is one that is very difficult to obtain. That resource is locked up inside you. By spending some time alone, pen in hand, exploring what it means to be a great father to your children, you can unearth a gold mine. I would begin by recalling your own father when you were a child, picturing him, and making a list of all the things you most loved about your dad. Remember what you respected and what you enjoyed. Conjure up times that you miss. Make a list of some of the best memories you had together. Take time to treasure moments that touch you deeply when you think of him. Next, I would make a list of the things about your dad that you wish were different . Remember what irritated you or bothered you - either things that he said or things that he didn't say, things that he did or things that he didn't do. Take some time to jot down negative memories from childhood, experiences with your dad (or perhaps where your dad was absent) that are sad memories. What do you wish had or hadn't happened? Having taken a good length of time to reminisce, and to explore that foundational relationship, you are primed to dream a little bit. From your perspective, what would a fantasy father be like? What ingredients are key to you? What would this dad do? What would this dad teach? What places would he go? What things would this dad not do? In as much detail as you can, write out what would make the ideal dad. This is what your child is likely to be looking for too.

17. Long Distance Fathering Stories
Being a dad away from your kids is hard. Read stories of fathers who have succesfully strengthened and maintained their relationships even while being away
My Father's Voice by Deena M. Beck Ehlert With supper finished it was mom's time for a break from her children. It was our time to be with dad. Cindy, my eight-year old sister, got the book while Tom, my six-year old brother, and I (four-years old) climbed on our gray couch. Book in hand, Cindy joined us on the couch and we all waited for mom to start the old reel-to-reel tape player. Dad was piloting airplanes in Vietnam for the Air Force. His one-year isolated tour would be over soon and he would be coming home. Throughout the year of his physical absence, our family received at least one tape a week from dad. Mom played a section to us every day. Dad began each day's session by asking each of us how our day had gone and what we had done. Speaking to the tape machine as if he could hear every word, each of us told him about our adventures. Unbeknownst to us, mom wrote down our responses so dad was kept up-to-date. In the subsequent tape, he praised our good deeds and gently corrected our errors. After everyone told dad their tales, he read to us from the book mom had sent. Cindy turned the pages while Tom and I followed along to his voice. Sometimes dad recorded himself teaching English to Vietnamese children in his neighborhood. It was always fun to hear the children talk in the strange language. Today, I don't remember the stories dad read, but I do remember the feelings I felt. I knew my father loved me because he talked to us nearly everyday, albeit by tape. Near the end of dad's year away, mom told us we were going to meet dad in California. We would be staying with Aunt Jenna Vee and Uncle Jack until dad arrived. The house was big, and it had a swimming pool! Mom loaded us all up and we made the few days journey from Texas to California. I was anxious to hear dad's voice again but had no recollection of what he looked like.

Fathering Your Adolescent: Ways to Strengthen Your Relationship
Shannon L. Sachs-Carter
While there is doubt whether adolescence is as stressful for youth as we once thought, there is considerable evidence that it is a difficult time for parents. In fact, research on life satisfaction showed that the lowest levels of well-being were reported by parents of adolescents, especially fathers. Coupled with the adolescent's physical, social, and emotional growth are complementary changes for the parent. Parents must adapt to developmental concerns that overlap with those of their adolescents. For example, while teens are just entering a period of rapid physical growth, parents have increasing concerns about their own bodies. Likewise, when teens are beginning to look to the future with anticipation, parents tend to feel that their own possibilities are limited. And while teens have their careers and adulthood roles ahead of them, their parents may have reached an occupational plateau. Some of the reasons given for the difficulties of parenting an adolescent include loss of control over the adolescent and fear for the adolescent's safety due to increased independence. The primary reasons cited for parental stress include the adolescent's push for freedom, failure to follow parental advice, and deviant behavior. There are many challenges to face as the father of an adolescent, but remember you are important to your child. A 1996 Gallup Poll indicated that more than 90% of the respondents agreed that "fathers make unique contributions to their children's behavior." So, Dads, don't give up!

19. RESPONSIBLE FATHERING: An Overview And Conceptual Framework
A consensus is emerging that responsible fathering means establishing paternity, being present in the child s life (even if divorced or unmarried),
William J. Doherty, Ph.D., Edward F. Kouneski, M.A., and Martha Farrell Erickson, Ph.D. of the University of Minnesota. September, 1996.
The principal implication for fathering programs is that these programs should involve a wide range of interventions, reflecting the multiple domains of responsible fathering, the varied residential and marital circumstances of fathers, and the array of personal, relational, and ecological factors that influence men as fathers. In particular, fathering programs should:
  • involve mothers where feasible and, especially for unmarried fathers, families of origin;
  • promote collaborative coparenting inside and outside marriage;
  • emphasize critical transitions such as birth of the child and divorce of the parents;
  • deal with employment, economic issues, and community systems;
  • provide opportunities for fathers to learn from other fathers; and
  • promote the viability of caring, committed, and collaborative marriages.
    Table of Contents
    Sociological and historical work on fathering makes it clear that fathering (at least beyond insemination) is fundamentally a social construction. Each generation molds its cultural ideal of fathers according to its own time and conditions, and each deals with the inevitable gap between what LaRossa (1988) terms the "culture" of fatherhood and the "conduct" of fathers in families. Sociological and historical analyses also make it clear that fathering cannot be defined in isolation from mothering and mothers' expectations, and from social expectations about childrearing in the society, and that these social expectations have been fairly fluid in the United States from decade to decade in the twentieth century. LaRossa (in press) has demonstrated how the culture of fatherhood and the conduct of fathers change course from decade to decade as social and political conditions change.
