So Mickey and I are working with the Life of Dad team on a parenting course for Dads and I had to share this sneak peek from the course (it’s going to be AMAZING):
“The key to being a good dad [parent]… well, sometimes things work out just the way you want. Sometimes they don’t. But you gotta hang in there. Because when all is said and done, 90% of being a dad [parent] is just showing up.” — Jay, Modern Family
Remember, your children do not care if you are working towards a promotion (or if you got one). They don’t care what kind of car you drive or how big your house is. They care about you and when they will see you. They care if you are going to play football with them in the back yard. They care if you are going to wake up to make them breakfast before you go to work. Your kids don’t care if you take them to a fancy restaurant, they just care that they get to spend that hour eating with you.
