Be there…Know your limits

Ben, a thirty-something father of three, had this to say about dadding:

In terms of “dadding,” I think the two things that have guided me are to “be there when you’re there- kid time is focused on the kids, not trying to multi-task other things,” and “know your limits.  Like anything else, something I love for a few hours becomes painful for everyone if I do it for too long.  When I know I’m going to have the kids for many hours, I develop a plan in advance for activities (parks, meals, walks, etc.) that will keep us all bouncing along happily.”
