In a world without superheroes, I’ll be there,
Unconditionally with powers to care.

I’ll be there to protect him in his times of need,
Right by his side quicker than any superhuman speed.

If he falls I’ll be there with open arms easing his pain with a kiss,
I’ll catch him without a web or using powers of telekinesis,

When he feels pain I’ll be there before a second glance,
Without feeling the need to wear my trousers under my underpants.

No cape nor special powers, no lasers beams,
No clothes due to green muscles ripping at the seams.

No need to wear a mask to hide my identity,
I’ll be his very own superhero by being the best father I can be.

What is GetConnectDAD?

@GetConnectDAD is an international project focused on One goal:  More ConnectDAD families.   We are 150 writers from around the world, focused on 52 Traits we want in our children.

Each week, parents from around the world are writing on a specific topic as part of a year’s worth of introspection on some key traits we want to consider for our kids.

Our writers answer the question, “What do you do to teach your kids about Empowerment, Generosity, etc?”

We understand that no one can focus on 52 unique traits; however, we hope that parents are able to think about each of these ‘traits’ as they are introduced and consider what they are doing to introduce components to their kids.
