As they say, each hut has its own rattles – someone has a dad who regularly walks with a child, others (like mine) only when absolutely necessary. My observations show that most fathers walk differently than mothers.
This is our option. Due to the fact that the husband spends his whole day at work or on business trips, he walks with his daughter quite rarely, but during these rare joint sorties he tries to appease his beloved daughter to the maximum in order to compensate for the lack of time spent together.
Therefore, each walk turns into wish fulfillment – rides, toy stores and the absorption of goodies like cotton candy. The daughter, of course, enjoys it and makes a wish list in advance.
This usually refers to boys. After all, many dads sleep and see their son as a football star, so they instill in the kid a love for the ball from a young nail. I quite often see dads playing football on sports fields with children already from two years of age and older.
My friend’s husband often rides bikes with his son – daddy on an adult, boy, who is 3.5 years old – on his own. It is good that we all live in close proximity to the embankment of the Dnieper – there is no problem with a place to walk. I also watched girls and dads on bicycles, but less often.
In our company, often with children go for a walk dad. It often happens that they leave children under our supervision (there is nothing wrong with that, we have known each other for several years and in this regard we trust each other), and they sit in a cafe nearby. They also often turn to us for help if they need to take the girl to the toilet.
Conflicts on the site dads often decide quite aggressively. Maybe they want their child to be the leader and the winner, but the absolute majority of them, instead of understanding the essence of the conflict, are simply advised to surrender.
Many dads can be quite sharp in their statements. For example, recently we had a situation on the ground. We have a boy who suffers from a terrible disease – leukemia (blood cancer). After a year in the hospital, his affairs went on the mend, they were discharged, but on the recommendation of the doctor he walks in a mask, because his immune system is weak and there is a high probability of getting sick.
So, some kind of dad took a rather cheeky question from the mother of the baby: what, is it infectious ?. Naturally, she does not intend to explain the reason to everyone she meets, so she said no, and a mask so that he would not get infected from other children. The man’s answer struck: Are you implying that my child is infectious?!. No comments.
I would venture to suggest that children walking with their fathers are more docile. Naturally, this depends on the authority of the father in the family, but on the street often the little ones are practically not naughty, they fulfill the request from the first time and behave much better.
Perhaps this is due to the fact that walks with daddies are more rare, and I do not know more communication with mom (that is, with mom it is more routine or something).
And how are your children’s walks with dads?
