Tobirama Senju

•Ridiculously overprotective father, doesn’t matter at what age. Babyproofs the shit out of his house. Watches his baby like a hawk. Literally, the second the baby starts crawling, Tobirama loses it. There are so many ways a baby can hurt themselves??? Every little possible situation just gives him anxiety. He would rather keep the baby in the crib all day to completely avoid any potential accidents. Or when he’s holding his baby, he doesn’t let them crawl 2 feet away from him before pulling them back into his lap. He just worries too much. He’s not that good with babies tbh

•He’s always going to be busy with work, whether he’s Hokage yet or not. So it’s likely he won’t have much time for his newborn baby. It sucks, but that’s just how it is. It’s a big downside to Tobirama starting a family, because he’s married to his work at times. Which he quickly regrets, because he knows he needs to be there for his baby during their early years, and can’t leave everything to his s/o. His baby needs a father

•A lot of the time spent with his baby is Tobirama helping them learn to walk or talk. Basically helping them grow. Imagine Tobirama walking with his baby around the house, holding their arms up as they slowly stroll around. So cute

•As they grow older, Tobirama still tries to be there for them, but duty calls. The village is paramount. He’ll have his child with him at the office on slow days though, but they have to be careful not to mess with his paperwork or he gets annoyed

•It’s around this age that Tobirama will train them, if they wish to be trained. He’s just as hard on them as he would be one of his students, maybe even harder

•Tobirama can’t stand their “rebellious” teenage years. Or the phase where they might be distant and isolated, refusing to talk to their parents. Tobirama is so used to being on top of everything that the moment he thinks he’s not keeping thorough tabs on his kid, he gets all paranoid. HE JUST HAS TO MONITOR EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE THAT’S HOW HE IS. But his child can’t really get away with sneaking around anyway, since Tobirama supervises them at all times, even when he’s in his office. You’re not likely to get away from a sensor like Tobirama. He follows their movements wherever they go in the village because he knows their chakra so well. Is it a little maniac? Sure. But Tobirama gets that way when it comes to his family

•Oooo Tobirama would get into soooo many arguments with his kid if they really were the rebellious, stubborn type. If they have his genes, they’re bound to inherit that personality anyway, and they’re also prone to arguing. “Just like your father,” people would probably say. But Tobirama denies it. Would blame it on his s/o tbh, like “They get that from your side of the family”

•At the end of the day though, he knows he can’t be too hard on his kid. He wants them to grow up strong and rational, and to know how to make the right decisions, hence why he’s so tenacious with their upbringing. But you’ll often find him coming home from a long day at work, and wanting nothing more than to spend time with his child. When they’re younger, it’s picking them out of their crib and holding them in his arms. When they’re older, it’s coming into their room to check up on them, ask about their day, offer to train or spar. Which means a lot, since Tobirama rarely has free time. The fact he’s willing to spend that free time on family, and not catch up on work, says a lot
