When your son was younger, he thought you were Superman. He hung off your every word, and boasted to all of his friends about how great you were. But now he’s getting older, you might be starting to drift apart. When you take him to school he’ll get you to drop him off down the road so you don’t embarrass him. It won’t be like this forever, and once he’s an adult, your relationship will improve, though he won’t think your word is gospel anymore. Those years in between can be tough and it might feel like you’re losing him, but don’t worry. You could try winning him round with a gift, but spending time together is better. Even though he doesn’t want to admit it, he does still enjoy your company. Here are a few ideas for father-son outings you can take him on, for a bit of quality bonding time.
Buying a gift for a boy, however old, is seemingly fairly straightforward. Which in turn makes it harder to come up with something different. Something unique that they will use or remember for a longer period of time. You may have some ideas that you have been bandying around, but the best thing you can do is take some ideas from somewhere else. Ideas that are direct but also let you think outside the box that will lead to other kinds of ideas. You can think of gifts that let them live better, gifts for recreation, and totally out there gifts they could never have thought of. Here are some ideas for you, the age range varies, as do the gifts. You may find the inspiration you need to find something incredible.
As a father of both a son and a daughter, I can tell you aside from their physical differences, boys and girls definitely require a different kind of parenting. It is obvious most moms (and dads) would do anything to enhance their child’s quality of life. Even with this great level of devotion, many moms of boys admit raising boys is both a joy and a challenge. It is normal for boys to climb, swing, make loud noises, make messes, run, tease siblings, laugh, and challenge rules.
