Father's Responsibility – 30 Fundamental Rules of Life to Teach Your Son (Part 1 of 2)
Ordinarily, a child is expected to grow up with both parents around. Nevertheless, because of other circumstances of life, the case may not be so. But where a biological father (or stand-in father figure) is around, you need to take ample time to teach your children the fundamental rules of life. And in particular to your son, the following are the fundamental rules that he must grow up well equipped on:

  Father's Responsibility – 30 Fundamental Rules of Life to Teach Your Son (Part 1 of 2)

1. Never shake a man’s hand sitting down. It doesn’t show the gentlemanship in you.
2. Don’t enter a pool by the stairs. Leave that for the girls and other young children. It may be construed as a sign of weakness.
3. In all things lead by example not explanation. That is the true mark of a real leader.
4. In a negotiation, never make the first offer. It takes out the much needed control from your hands.
5. Request the late check-out. It shows that you are in control of your time and life, even to the comfort of those who are moving with you.
6. When entrusted with a secret, keep it. Don’t lose people’s trust in you. Trust is worth much more than gold and silver.  
7. Hold your heroes to a higher standard. It inspires your followers to do the same even to you.
8. Return a borrowed car with a full tank of gas. It gives you much more credibility. And tomorrow, even if you don’t have money, people will be much more willing to help you.
9. Play with passion or don’t play at all. Don’t fake your participation. You lose credibility if people find out the truth.
10. When shaking hands, grip firmly and look them in the eye. It sends the positive signal that you value your colleagues; and that you are fully conscious of their presence in your vicinity.

11. Be confident and humble at the same time. Confidence allows you to win battles even before you start. Humility builds your fan base; and let them be the ones to blow your trumpet not yourself.
12. If you need music on the beach, you’re missing the point. You have to understand the requirements of every place and position where you are.
13. Carry two handkerchiefs. The one in your back pocket is for you. The one in your breast pocket is for her.
14. You marry the girl, you marry her family. Marriage has responsibilities that goes beyond the two of you.
15. Be like a duck. Remain calm on the surface and paddle like crazy underneath. Don’t be a public attraction seeker. Just do business in the underground, and results will speak for you.

May God help you raise sons that are responsible to take over after you! May they grow up on great wisdom and understanding; and be ready to perpetuate genuine fatherhood in their lives.
