I think girls are naturally more showy than boys, and the same goes for mothers versus fathers. But that doesn’t mean one parent is more creative or supportive than the other. It just means that each parent has their own way of showing their creativity.
But this Father’s Day, let’s commend all the fathers out there who get in touch with their creative side for the sake of their children.
The Things We Do For Love
Getting creative isn’t easy for every father. But most will still do what they have to show their love and support for their child.
No, not every child should expect their father to get on stage, learn choreography, or perform in front of hundreds of people. But every child should recognize all the creative ways their dad does participate in during their lives.
What’s the Best Father’s Day Gift?
That’s easy. Let your dad be himself. Show him respect, be proud, and support his creativity every day, not just on Father’s Day. And, don’t try to change who he is. He may not want to dance with you on stage, help you put together a model airplane, or let you paint his pinky nail before work. But he knows how to get creative in other ways, if you’ll let him try.
Let him tell his bad “dad jokes” without judgment and fix things that aren’t broken. And, if he insists on cooking his “world-famous” BBQ dinner three times a week, let him. If that’s what he’s good at, support him, just like he supports you.
He may surprise you with what he’s capable of doing. Give him a chance!
