My Daddy is the Best - Lyrics

Father's Day falls on 3rd Sunday of the month of June. It is celebrated to honor Dads for everything they do to bring up kids and bond a family through out their life. As it's been celebrated on June 21st this year, here's a song lyrics "My Daddy is the Best" and I am sure, kids will love to sing this song. This is from the Album of Penny Vaz, an Indian singer from Bombay. You can also find 'Dad-A Role Model and Tips for Dads -(article in my Book 'Guardian of Angels' - a copy can be grabbed from ) - Enjoy!
My Daddy is the Best
I hear from my friends everyday, About the things their daddies do
So rich and famous they may be,I know that what they say is true
Some are doctors some are cops
Some have reached the very top
Some are short and some are tall
Some they say just have it all
But I still like the one I've got'Cause he's the Best one of the Lot

Chorus: My daddy is the best
He's a cut above the rest
I know he cares for me
He's everything a dad should be...
My daddy is the best
He's a cut above the rest
I know he cares for me
He's everything a dad should be
My daddy is the Best.

He gets home tired everyday
But then he takes me on his knee
He strokes my cheek that special way
I know how much he cares for me
Takes me to a movie show
Anywhere I wanna go
Takes me to the beach to play
Yes, my daddy makes my day
There are times when I', feeling sad
But I come alive holding his hand...

Repeat Chorus.

It is observed that many people have the social phobias in their personal and professional lives and many find it a ‘Blocking Door’ as they stumble over a presentation at work or go blank on a test or baffle to speak and find stammering in nervousness in certain situations. This is a disturbed social confidence and a stressful situation.

Smooth Sailing Relationships

Relationships mean a lot in life! Let there be Smooth sailing Relationship with soft hearts but no broken relations if one got to stay happy, make happy, stay cool. How often, we find people with 'Crush' and this can happen with anyone - children to adults! Only as parents or teachers, we ourselves need to be too aware of our emotions and set a positive example to children who often need guidance.

Here are tips that might help adults and guide children too :

Stay cool. Make sure the person you like so dearly is not married because it sooner or later spells disaster. If you do so, keep the friendship a distance and let not your emotions go haywire. After all, many people learn this from experiences only!

If your Crush is too young, treat her right! Don’t scare them out of your wits. Just be cool friends, give positive signals of openness to make her realize that you care. Even if you don’t get encouragement to positive signals, let go. Don’t hurt yourself or the other. Do not tell tales about your Crush as it would only harness yours and her reputation spreading rumors about your relationship.

If your crush is too old, Watch out! Snoop around a bit and get to know how her reputation holds importance. If you think of her as a flirt, the warning signal but if she is a flirt like all libras and Leos do, just remember that she lives a lot in realities and you will sooner or later realize your own mistake! Don’t get smitten with love bite but be cool to let your relationship take on a lighter tone while flirting and think positive that some relationships are inspirations and encouragements too. These things are more important to back you up in pursuing your responsibilities in life.

Staring, sending cards, making phone calls, sending messages and stuff should mean something but let not those emotions run wild. It may happen that your crush is more mature and finds such things ‘Silly’. Just ‘Be yourself’ Do not act in haste, make a show-off, smoke, drink or drive senseless to impress someone. In any case, mature people don’t change themselves to please others. Stop those ‘Blank calls’ and all the crazy ways if you have the Crush. Soon you realize its only a ‘Crush’ but if you think, you like the friendship, go ahead and be practical instead of being crazy because friends are forever. If you think, your emotions are chasing high, stop, think and analyze and then, go and let your Crush know point-blank what she means to you or you are interested. If you feel you are right, you are right and stick tight but if you don’t have those reciprocal relationship treat, just Relax, stay cool – catch the hold of the moment, let the heart beat into the sweet memories forever.

Well, I have covered up a Chapter 'Temperament and Values' in my book 'Guardian of Angels'. We all need to Conquer Anxiety and Master our Moods. Know Emotions and stay cool, impart values to our children as they grow up.

Btw, here's Moms Zone for Parents and teachers on Kidsfreesouls.
