What Does God want a Good Daddy to act like?
Tabitha agree with many of the fine principles you have posted but the rod of discipline does not always have to include spanking and it does not need to be brutal and please elaborate in your own words. Would love to hear your opinion in the written words from your own heart.
Would be nice read some other genuine comments from other religious faiths to get a good idea of how a fine father should be. Perhaps some Bible verses would be nice too.

11 However good a child’s intentions, he is still a child and must be dealt with as a child. Constant oversight is necessary, because “foolishness is tied up with the heart of a boy,” says the Proverbs; “the rod of discipline is what will remove it far from him.” Parents must be reasonably consistent in their instruction. They must feel, speak and act as if they expect the child to behave, and see to it that he does. There are times when the literal rod should be used to keep the peace and respect of the family. The Scriptures advise: “Do not hold back discipline from the mere boy. In case you beat him with the rod, he will not die. With the rod you yourself should beat him, that you may deliver his very soul from Sheol itself.” (Prov. 22:15; 23:13, 14) Says Dr. Spock, “Firm guidance, which springs from devotion, is not only good for children—they love it!” The father and mother must care enough for their child to teach him right and wrong. J. Edgar Hoover, director of the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation, said: “Discipline, fairly and consistently invoked, breeds pride and respect. And children want—desperately—to be disciplined.

He wants him to beat them with rods so as not to spoil them, apparently.
