The Nostalgic Dad

“Back in my time” is Nostalgic Dad’s favorite opening line. He likes to give advice and compare how society and times have changed. Nostalgic dads often have lots of wonderful stories and lessons to share. You will appreciate him for his perseverance and hard work.

The Handyman Dad

Handyman Dad takes a Do-It-Yourself approach and can fix anything. Maybe it has to do with growing up in an era where it was harder to call the garage without a cell phone.

Today, you have people doing everything – plumber, electrician, technician – but old-timers will tell you they were the skillful housekeepers before these jobs became mainstream.

The Coach Dad

His parenting style can be stressful and overwhelming at times, but he knows how to get things done and the results are truly impressive. Never leaving his stopwatch, he taught you that you can be anything you want but within a certain framework. This is one of the coolest but also strictest types of dads

The Sharing Dad

The sharing dads are also the most common types of dads that we will see in today’s families. They always share parenting roles with their partners and use a teamwork approach to parenting.

These fathers share household chores, discuss the strengths and weaknesses of parenting with their mothers or partners, and decide how to respond to their children’s feelings and behaviors.

A Workaholic Dad

Work hard. From dawn to dusk, working for his family to keep them fed, educated, and clothed. His 3-year-old may be hanging upside down from the monkey bars, but his face is buried in his email. He won’t look up to say hello unless he spots a networking opportunity, which is almost certainly work-related. 

Try to find out what he does and if you have any connections, or you will never get a word. He may not be the best dad at taking care of his kids, but he knows how to advance his career while still being a dad.

This father is in touch with all of his emotions, as well as those of his children. He takes that baby’s cries seriously and tries to figure out what they mean. Sometimes the attention is a bit too much. However, he remains the best counselor for children’s psychology and emotions.

Thoughtful dad

These types of dads are always thinking about their children, what they need and what they want.

They are good at knowing their kids’ strengths and limitations, their favorite toys, friends’ names, and what they love to play with. They are also good at planning ahead and thinking about things like planning their child’s gift or birthday party.

The Playful Pop

If you meet this type of dad, you will find that he is always playful and even childlike. He wants to relive his childhood and isn’t afraid to do it through his kids. His size may be four times bigger, but he also wants to do everything his kids do. Curved saws and broken swings were signs  he’s been there. He has great tips and tricks about children’s play, but is not the right person to talk about adult conversations or difficult situations.
