Dads are an irreplaceable influence in a child’s life. Dads have the power to be a force for good in the lives of their children old and young. My own husband is such a wonderful example of the power of dad in my own children’s lives.

Here are just a few of my husband’s own Power of Dad moments:

  1. No matter how exhausted he is, Dad is always up for playing superheros with our boys.
  2. Ever patient (seriously, I don’t know how he does it) no matter how trivial the problem, sorrow, or owie Dad is there to listen and help.
  3. In our house Dad is the master builder of all things cardboard! Cars, superhero masks, claws, shields, you name it. The boys know they can count on Dad to help them bring their cardboard dreams to fruition.
  4. Dad was busy being a great dad to our youngest before he was even out of the womb. Best birth coach ever!

In honor of the Power of Dads, Oral-B has compiled this sweet collection of Power of Dad moments.

Do you have a Power of Dad moment? I’d love to hear it!
