Father’s Day in Chicago Activities
Chicago dads who love watching the Cubs or White Sox with their kids have games lined up all weekend. In Chicago, dads watch baseball with their sons and daughters, and many of them have their favorite ballplayers and baseball traditions. The forecast may call for rain so watching the game indoors or under a covered patio.
Here are some more ideas for making memories this Father’s Day in Chicago:
- Go to a horse race at the Arlington International Racecourse. They have more than horse racing and betting, with kid-friendly activities appropriate for all ages, including a petting zoo and carnival activities.
- Play catch with Dad on the Chicago Dogs’ Impact Field! Get there early because you have from 11 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. to get out there and play catch on the field before the Chicago Dogs game that starts at 1:05 p.m.
- Head to Ravinia in Highland Park for the folk trio, Peter, Paul, and Mary. They perform at 7 p.m. at the Martin Theater indoor stage.

- Get your hands on Hamilton tickets at the CIBC Theatre in Chicago. The biomusical about Alexander Hamilton is a must-see and provides for all kinds of follow-up discussion topics.
The Role Father’s Play in our Lives
Fathers teach their kids how to be good people. Fathers teach their children how to be team players and leaders. They show their sons and daughters how to love and respect themselves and others. Fathers are superheroes to their children.
As a father, you have to be like a superhero to always make your children feel safe, no matter what. Good parents keep their kids reasonably sheltered from adult problems. Financial troubles and strain can negatively affect kids who may have never otherwise thought or worried about money. So to all the dads who make it through tough times while wearing a strong face, you all deserve a great Father’s Day weekend with your families.
Fathers Handle Financial Stress and Pressure, Sometimes Bankruptcy
Financial emergencies happen to good people. Good Dads can lose their job. Great dads never let the kids see them sweat financial difficulties. Parents who discuss money in front of the children may be creating an unnecessary level of anxiety in children who don’t need to worry about adult matters. For example, children who do not understand what bankruptcy is could be upset about worries in their minds that they don’t share. Kids may not understand that bankruptcy does not mean ruin and it does not mean they will have to give up all their possessions. Who knows what kids might think if they overhear mom and dad talking about money problems and bankruptcy.

Understand how Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Repayment Plans Can Be a Great Option
If you are facing a financial situation that includes a bankruptcy filing, or something is changing at home because of money, keep an eye on your kids. You know how to hint around at things and fish for their questions. You might also make a light mention of making some changes that are better for the family.
In any event, talk to others and look up advice from experts about dealing with parenting and financial issues and questions. At the very least, an effort to hide finances from children might make everyone happier.
Learning Financial Tips and Information from Fathers
Dads should teach their kids what they have learned and what their fathers taught them. For example, saving some of your paychecks for emergencies and future needs is something that starts early. When grandmother gives you money for your birthday, take some of it and put it in the piggy bank or savings account. Piggy banks are great because they get heavier and louder the more you fill them up.
Teaching children to earn their own money is important. Parents who gave their kids everything without them learning to work and earn may not be helping their children learn about earning money. The young kids who mow lawns and walk dogs for extra money can save up for things they want. You may be surprised how many kids get ideas on how to make money and start small businesses. Supporting your son or daughter’s lemonade stand today can give them the confidence they need to do whatever they want in the future.
Financial realities can change. Fathers can help their kids prepare for the reality of financial uncertainty. Explain with a game of Monopoly this Father’s Day Weekend in Chicago and let your kids understand money comes and money goes. What you do with the money in between sets up you up for security or peril. These are all good life lessons to teach children.
