It can be easy to forget sometimes, but you're a role model. It doesn't matter what you do for a living, how much money you make or what your grades were in high school -- your son is looking to you to learn how to be a man. So, needless to say, you should try to set a good example. Spending some quality father-son bonding time is a great way to show him who you are and to build a better relationship with him.

To help the two of you get closer, we're giving you a list of five father-son bonding activities. We'll tell you where to go to have some guaranteed good times and what you can do to make his life a little easier. All of these activities are relatively inexpensive (if not free), and they should be fun regardless if you're close buddies or if you're so different you can't believe you share genes.
