  • quality time with a child is what makes a huge difference. You can nurture, discipline and teach good morals while spending quality time with your child.=)

  • Time spent is great, however only if the Dad is a positive role model! My son's father is NOT. So I would only agree with conditions. I think it has to accompany items 3 and 4, Teaching good morals and Nurturing and encouragement.

  • I think time spent with a child and nurturing and encouragement go hand in hand. Children need people who love them to be involved.

  • Time spent with a child may not be enough. My BF's ex spent tons of time with the kids, but it wasn't quality time. He wasn't a good role model. He wasn't even that great of a father.
    A father should be with his children to love and nurture them. To do that you have to spend quality time with your babies. So it falls together. But care and support are KEY. A child needs to know that Daddy will be there no matter what.
