Boys and dads

Submitted by PAUL C on April 17 2013 11:04 PM

My husband is away from home many times during the week due to work, so often it is just me and the boys throughout the week.

At times it is difficult, particularly on those occasions when we have all been sick or when the boys were really young.  I take my hat off to all the single parent families out there.

Now the boys are getting older, they are really starting to miss having their Dad around every day. They jump all over him when he gets home and often they choose him over me when it comes to putting them to bed or reading a story.

Boys look up to their Dads for many reasons.   They are often more fun and not as cautious and serious as their Mum – well this is true in our family anyway.

Is this the case in your household?   Are your boys getting to the age where Dad becomes really important?  If their Dad is not around due to work or other family reasons, what do you do to fill the gap?
