How to be a good father
How I did it: Read a lot about child psychology, watched "Super Nanny" a lot and put all that into practice. My wife's support was pivotal. I have some useful lessons and tips to share, check them out below.
Lessons & tips: In this particular case, Quantity and Quality both matter. First you
have to learn quite a bit about child psychology, and if you are a
first-time father to a new-bron (like I was) this is a must. There are
some good books on the topic. The on I found the most useful is "The First Twelve Months of Life". It would help you out on the "Quality" front.
On "Quantity" front, remember that you'll have to sacrifice one thing for another; in the sense that you'll routinely come across things you would rather be doing while you're baby-sitting your kid (or just listening to his/her googles). An effective way to get over this feeling is to engage your child with you (assuming that you're not doing anything with sharp objects or hazardous fluids etc.)
