I recently came across this list of questions asked by a dad to his children.

How are your devotions?

What is God teaching you?

In your own words, what is the gospel?

Is there a specific sin you’re aware of that you need my help defeating?

Are you more aware of my encouragement or my criticism?

What’s daddy most passionate about?

Do I act the same at church as I do when I’m at home?

Are you aware of my love for you?

Is there any way I’ve sinned against you that I’ve not repented of?

Do you have any observations for me?

How am I doing as a dad?

How have Sunday’s sermons impacted you?

Does my relationship with mom make you excited to be married?

I think any dad could profitably ask these of his children. It may be that some “relational rent” needs to be paid by the dad, to be able to gain an entrance into a child’s wounded heart.
