The first person we call whenever we see a rat or a snake in the house is our fathers. He is on call whenever there is a home repair or maintenance to complete. However, although he is always there to assist you how much time do you really spend with him? In this case, I don’t call handing him tools to fix your plumbing issues spending time together. This normally happens because we don’t know how to spend time with him. He is unlikely to sit with you and talk like your mother. Instead, you need to find an activity that you would both like. This can even be an activity that you can undertake on a regular basis. But we understand that discovering what this activity is can be a challenge.
Go To the Lake
I am yet to find a father who does not like fishing Darwin. Therefore why don’t you grab a boat and go to the lake for the day? You two can spend an entire Sunday partaking in this activity. Furthermore, it would also give you time to reconnect with each other. Even if your father is not a big talker you can be happy that you are spending time with him. Moreover, if you do manage to catch something you can then have a Sunday dinner with your old man.
Remember all the Sunday evenings you used to spend down at the arcade with your father? Well as you grew older you may not have had time to hang out with your old man. Therefore why don’t you attempt to rectify this situation by going bowling with your dad? This can be a regular activity for you to try out. That is because there is nothing better than eating junk food and attempting to knock down pins. Furthermore, you can also encourage some friendly competition between the two of you.
Have a Movie Night
I know that we mostly tend to watch movies on our television or laptop now without going to the cinema. But you can make a day out of it by taking your dad to the movies. You would then get the opportunity to snack on popcorn whilst watching a movie with your favourite man. But we understand that some fathers may not like all the new movies. In that case, you can go to a cinema that is playing some classics. Furthermore, you could even arrange a movie night at home. This way you would be able to watch a series of movies from the comfort of your own home.
We understand that finding activities to do with your father can be hard. Therefore if you strive to follow the above guide you would be able to receive some assistance.
