Michael Farris’s lists are always helpful, fun (and convicting) to read. With Father’s Day around the corner, I thought I would share this one again. It’s a great one for dads.
Here’s a snippet…
During the holidays, dads often have a little more time to do things with their children. This is a time of year when moms definitely can use an extra hand. Few things will mean more to your wife, or help her as much, as spending extra time in beneficial activities with your children.I often am asked to give practical suggestions to fathers. Usually, I have approached these requests in an organized fashioned that presents principles, ideas, and methods. However, a lot of really important things that all dads–including home-schooling dads–can and should do with and for their children are not subject to this kind of systematic thinking. Here are my “Top 40 Practical Ideas for Fathers” for your consideration:
- Read your little children a story.
- Do flash card drills to hone your children’s memorization of math facts.
- Do a science experiment with your children using Jane Hoffman’s Backyard Science materials if other resources are not available.
- Give your children their spelling tests.
- Read your bigger children the Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis.
