If you could improve one area in your fatherhood journey…what would it be? 

For a lot of dads, they want to be more patient. When experienced dads are asked about becoming a father, a common theme that comes up is the importance of patience. 

There is nothing like a crying baby in the middle of the night to test a young couple’s patience. Being interrupted continuously while trying to accomplish a simple task around the house. Having to ask for something to be done over and over.

For me, I noticed it particularly tough when I feel like I don’t have much time for myself. 

And the routine with little children can sometimes feel a bit like groundhogs’ day because it repeats itself over and over again. 

 

 

The Unicorn 

Have you ever seen a man who seems to have unlimited patience with his children, life, work etc? It’s a bit strange to see, but there are some out there who have really worked on developing patience. 

For dad’s who are NOT naturally blessed with a substantial gift of patience, it can be a long road and you may not know what to do.  

So, it’s time to practice patience or at least set some exceptions for yourself of what is acceptable and what is not. Kids will be kids. They are going to act out. They will test your limits and boundaries. They will make mistakes…heck so will we. 

As parents, our job is to give them a safe environment to make mistakes and learn from them. So don’t expect immediate returns; just hang in there. 

Patience is a fundamental virtue of raising a family. It’s also incredibly important to the emotional health of the family to be led by a father who models patience in spite of challenging circumstances. 

UNCOMMEN TIPS: 

  1. Ask God to help you be more patient with your family. (pro tip –  this may lead to opportunities to work on your patience) 
  2. Set expectations – it’s going to be challenging 
  3. Find a mentor who has been through this and ask what worked for him.  
  4. Don’t expect your spouse to be able to handle all your frustration. She’s going through her own challenges with parenting. Speak with your wife about what you’re going through as she may be feeling the same way. 
  5. Give yourself a break. Create small moments during the week where you can take make some time for yourself. Even 20 min makes a world of difference.  
  6. Exercise is an excellent way to burn off stress. I found that early mornings are the best time to make that happen. 

 

Truth & Grace 

  1. At the end of the day, if you don’t have patience it will impact many areas of your life and family. 
  2. Health 
  3. Communication 
  4. Marriage 
  5. Parenting 
  6. Proverbs 15:18 A hot-tempered man stirs up strife, but he who is slow to anger quiets contention.” 

 

Today’s Challenge: Work on your patience because there may come a day when you need to be a calming voice in the storm for your wife or children.
