How to Be the Perfect Father

Parenting is a tough and demanding job and trying to be a perfect father can be difficult. However it is important that you are a good role-model at least. There is no personality trait that makes a perfect father, but the endeavor to become one and the continuous learning approach to perfect it matters the most.
