Father-Daughter Activities
  1.Cook Something Up     Whether it's whipping up a batch of cookies or conquering a four-course meal, spending time in the kitchen with your daughter is an easy way to have fun together.   2. Picture This!    If you have a camera, take turns photographing things around the house and outdoors that represent her one-of-a-kind traits. Perhaps an image of her tennis shoes could signify her athletic spirit, or photo of a blooming flower might symbolize her beauty. Ask her to track down things that she appreciates the most about her family or friends as well.   3. Camp Out    Camping out with your daughter is a great chance to teach her some practical skills and learn more about each other.

Your son might not get the idea right away and want to revert to his Game Boy, but be patient. Given a little time to adjust, he’ll probably have more fun at the lake and on the trails than he ever thought possible.   2.

8 Ways to Get Dad More Involved

Research shows that the more equitably domestic tasks are distributed, the happier wives (and husbands) are with their marriages. In other words, resolving these issues may be critical to the health and success of your relationship. 1. Look at it from his perspective.    Researchers have found that women tend to measure what their husbands do around the house against what they do. Not surprisingly, on that kind of scale, most men fail miserably. Men themselves, though, compare what they do to what their fathers -- and sometimes even their male friends and coworkers -- do. Using this standard, most husbands feel pretty satisfied with themselves and their contributions around the house. 2.
