“When’s the next All Pro Dad chapter meeting?” my daughter asked out of the blue. The All Pro Dad chapter she was talking about is a monthly breakfast before school that we started this year. Once a month, dads and kids eat breakfast together and discuss character traits like courage, compassion, and diligence. We also take time to share why we are proud of our kids—something every kid, especially my daughter, loves.

“It’s actually this Tuesday,” I answered. She smiled and I could feel her excitement. The All Pro Dad chapter meeting is something both of us look forward to. It’s a great opportunity for us to bond. Bonding with our kids is important, not only for our relationship with our kids, but for their development. Each time we’re able to connect with our kids, it gives us more of a voice to mold and shape them. Here are 5 ways to bond with your kids each month.
