What makes a good father?

I'm not even going to suggest that I am one and that I'm going to give
you the answers. Its more a question that I ask to you for answers
because I want to make sure I am being the best father to my children.
I believe talking about what qualities make a good father will steer
me into the correct path and realize some changes I need to make.

I think I can draw upon experiences shared with my own father and how
our father-son relationship have been so far. To be unselfish, open,
and selfless is what this whole thing teaches me. I'm sure my father
has been through a lot raising us and I thank the heavens for him. He
teaches me to value education, be independent, and be self-reliant.
In addition to this and more importantly, impart to your kids that it
is ok to rely on others, to study hard but have fun studying, to
always spend quality time with loved ones, and to cultivate good
friendships. Being good providers to your family is key but it's not
all about money right?

This is my rant for now. I hope my over-sharing helps because it
definitely helped fill the time while I waited for my wife to finish
food shopping at Superstore and PriceSmart Foods.
