What Type of Dad Are You?

By Zane Meas

I had just turned 40 in 2005 when I started working in Father Coaching. This was a time when Fatherless-ness had not yet been identified as the root cause of many of our social ills, and before ‘personal coaching’ had become the catchphrase du jour. In the 18 years since then, I have confirmed the importance and necessity of positive and intentional fatherhood and its immense benefits to our society. 

Fathers play a crucial role in shaping their children’s lives. However, not all fathers are the same. In today’s diverse society, we encounter various types of fathers, each with unique issues and parenting approaches. Or lack of involvement. Let’s explore the different types of fathers we find today.

The Nurturer

The Nurturer is a father who excels at providing emotional support and care for his children. He prioritizes quality time spent together and fosters a strong bond with his children through open communication and affection. The Nurturer understands that Love is spelled T-I-M-E.

The Provider

The Provider is a father who prioritises the financial well-being of his family. The Provider may have a demanding job, but he works to create a stable and secure environment for his children. While he may not always be physically present due to work commitments, his dedication to providing for his family is unwavering. Not ideal, but doable Dad.

The Fun-loving Dad

The Fun-loving Dad is the father who brings joy, laughter, and adventure into his children’s lives. He is always up for an exciting outing, a game, or a silly dance party. He creates lasting memories through shared experiences and ensures his children have a fun-filled childhood. Great!

The Absent Father

Unfortunately, not all fathers are actively involved in their children’s lives. The Absent Father may be physically or emotionally unavailable, resulting in a lack of connection with his children. This absence can profoundly impact a child’s emotional well-being and development. *Sad face. 

Fatherhood comes in many forms. By acknowledging and understanding the different types of fathers, we can appreciate their impact on their children’s lives and work towards creating a nurturing and supportive environment for future generations to thrive.
