Seek out healthy relationships.

Strive for success.
The road to success is clearly defined, with consistent efforts and passion to achieve greatness. A father will teach his children to set their goals and sketch a planned course of action. He will teach them to be persistent and that hard work will always beat talent.

Always be good at fixing things.
Since every kid learns a lot from home, it is essential ]for a father to teach his children how to fix things at home. Some of the things include repairing broken switches, tapes, windows, and replacing a flat tire and basic car checkup. It gives assurance that your kid will be safe when they are alone at home and not get stranded at night with a tire puncture.
Accept responsibility when you're wrong.
No one is perfect in life. We make matters worse when we try to cover up mistakes, this will develop into a serious issue if not discovered. A father must teach his children to accept responsibility for their mistakes, this is the first step to recognise mistakes and search for solutions. Sometimes, it is better to discuss mistakes a father will have done in his life and the consequences it has brought in his life. It creates a platform for anyone to air their views and mistakes.
Perfection is a myth.
In life no one is perfect. The only perfection anyone can achieve in life is to be themselves other than portraying a false picture about themselves. And that true happiness is when you are happy with yourself.
