Chris Hemsworth lives in the public eye. As with all people in the spotlight, the 33-year-old Australian actor is expected to play a certain role to placate the public's attention in a way that most people will never really appreciate. But there's another side to Hemsworth that the public really only gets glimpses of: his lifelong role as a dad to his daughter India Rose and his twin sons, Tristan and Sasha. It's in these glimpses, shared with fans by his wife Elsa Pataky on Instagram, or by Hemsworth himself, that we see the part of his life that really makes him shine: his children and his dedication to being as present as he can in their lives.

Here are 9 simple lessons from Chris Hemsworth that anyone can take away about what an ideal dad is. No one can be all of these things all of the time, mind you, but as long as you're trying, the effort will take you a long way in raising your kids. 

1. He's Superman to his kids.

2. He publicly stands against child abuse.

3. He stops to appreciate the little things and his little ones.

4. His kids are never too heavy to carry.

5. He's not afraid to show his affection.

6. He knows the importance of play.

7. He knows each day is precious.

8. He knows they won't be young forever...

9. But he'll always be their dad.
