I think the most important elements for being a good role model as a father is being able to give consistent and great Guidance and a key solid foundation to your kids taught by example and through consistency, which gives the kids the foundation they all need to build off, as a base growing up
Paddling with the family
The other key element is constant and consistent care, love and support towards all they do and that’s important to them
To teach them to have humility, to be humble and never take anything for granted are key cornerstones for keeping you grounded
To have a positive attitude & strong self-belief is key to have success and be successful in anything you do
Consistently remind yourself and your kids to never look at a problem, but rather as a puzzle, a challenge, to think outside of the box, to solve things in life, see them as an Adventure
Remain Disciplined & have a strong work ethic always, as nothing in life is free
Sailing with Dad
Never ever forget and under estimate the importance of still being courteous and having good manners, no matter where you are and whom you are with
Teaching honesty and living by it is one of life’s most important and most valuable lessons to teach your kids, as your word is your bond.
Keith Bertish- My late Dad
Making time for Family time as dad and as a husband is key and something that sounds simple, but often not as easy to do as it sounds in modern life, with the 24/7 lifestyle and demands of us all the time.
I believe this was what was important to my Dad that I took from him as I grew up into the man I have become today and in looking back in hindsight I wouldn’t change a thing, as a role model I would want to be for my kids one day..
