12 Things Fathers Must Continually Say To Their Sons

As I get older and older, the important questions have begun to reign true in my mind more than ever.

For example, what’s the best way possible for me to lead a family? And in particular, what’s the best way to raise and communicate with my future children?

The questions are unavoidable.

Of course, there has never been a proven “perfect” way to raise a child, but there are the little things you can say to them as they grow up that could tremendously impact their adult lives once they’re all grown up.

I was digging around on Twitter, and discovered this cool thread from the Twitter account Foundation Father, an account that is designated to giving life advice for fatherhood.

The thread is titled “12 things every father must say to his son, over and over,” and needless to say, there are a number of inspiring statements that can help you become the best father possible for your son.

Lets take a look:

1. I’m proud of you.

2. Get back up.

3. I’m sorry. Please forgive me.

4. I’m disappointed by your actions.

5. I love you.

6. You are my son.

7. The world is not fair. The world owes you nothing.

8. Respect your mother.

9. Stand with your brothers and sister.

10. You are responsible for your actions. No one else.

11. Follow me.

12. Sometimes a losing battle is worth fighting because it’s the right thing to do.

Good stuff.
