When discussing their children, parents often talk about many things such as: Grades, daily activities, personality and especially intelligence (including IQ and EQ). Children with high IQ and EQ not only have an advantage at an early age, but also have a high chance of succeeding at work later in life.
According to a study at Yale University (USA), children raised by the following fathers tend to do well in school and have a high chance of success in adulthood.
1. Fathers tend to be self-sufficient
Children raised by fathers who tend to be self-directed are more likely to be successful at work. These fathers do not pamper their children. They always point out the right direction for you, let you move on your own, reach the goal. They will not control the child, let him have his own space to practice independence.

When their children face challenges or setbacks, fathers with this tendency often say to their children: “Stand up and move forward. I believe that as long as you try, everything will turn out well”. Thanks to the encouragement of the father, the children will not be discouraged and continue to move forward with a confident attitude.
The best education a father can give his child is not one that cares about every detail but one that is consistent, giving direction to his child. A good father must set an example for his children about exemplaryness and determination. This helps your child identify the goal ahead, quickly reaching for success.
2. Adventure dads
When their children are young, fathers often interact with their children through activities such as playing sports, exploring the world, etc. In the process of playing together, fathers can stimulate imagination and creativity. Tell your children about things and phenomena around them. These things directly affect the formation of the child’s personality. Especially for boys, they will develop a strong, brave and persistent character.
The father is the bridge to help the child explore the outside world. Their spirit of adventure is different from the sense of security that a mother usually gives her child. The father has the role of guiding and helping the child to feel better about the difference in the outside world.

3. Dad guides his son to practice everything
From the mother, the child learns knowledge in daily life such as: Language, name of objects, uses, usage, … And from the father, children can learn richer and more comprehensive knowledge. through the practice of repair.
For example, children will watch their father repair electrical lines, install light bulbs, close bookshelves, etc. Or children will be instructed by their father to repair their own toys and school supplies. As a result, children improve their hands-on ability, arouse interest, imagination and desire to explore.
The perception that children acquire from their fathers and mothers is quite different. And the ability of children to perceive problems from the father is often more profound and comprehensive than that of the mother. Observing dad practice will make children tend to learn and follow after only a short time.
In any case, the father cannot give up his child’s education and must take responsibility for it. A child’s growth is like a one-way train, completely irreversible. Therefore, the father, no matter how busy he is, should arrange time with his children. Don’t miss out on a great time to grow up with your child.
