Default a bit early..but here goes...

i was talking to my girlfriend the other day and she mentioned wanting kids / a kid when we are older...this scared me as a child i was a victim of my dads temper all the time...then he died when i was just 11... so i have no father figure to base myself on...i know if we have children it will be a long time from now...but i want to learn as much as i can before i am a father myself...i want children..i just dont want to be my dad (if thas understandable) so if any of you have any parenting tips i would be very grateful...thank you all...

every father is different, everyone does things in different ways, sometimes parents dont know what to do, but they learn in time, they know whats best for their child... you just need to love the child, and you will make the best father you can be

As parents, our goal is to be a better parent to our children than ours was to us. Even those who have great parents, they still want to be better. The fact that you're concerned about what kind of father you would be, is a sign that you're going to be a great dad.

A great dad, is one who wants to be.

I can somewhat sympathize with you here. I agree with Mousey. You'll be a great father! But that must be what you want. I wish you the best of luck!

Keep rockin'
