Dads! Where did the time go?

You're like "When did this happen?" or "What’s going on?"

You little ones are no longer little and everything you did in the beginning has change. The way you talk to your child or children, even how you discipline them. Stop! Breathe and take a moment and rethink how you are doing. If it works with you, then change should be a minimum. Don’t ever substitute values when raising your child or children.

They will say dad you don’t understand this is the 2000. Remember when we would say to our parents this is the 1970's or the 1980's. They look at us like we were crazy and at times wanted to laugh. Don’t get me wrong, are parents was laughing at what we said. Still whip that butt. You know what I mean. This is why there is such turmoil in the home that parents are trying to be friends instead of being a parent and it causes conflicts. It will bite you in the butt. Children don’t care what you say they see how you act and will call you on it an emulate YOU! I know it caught me off guard a couple of times, but at the same time I dealt with myself and my child. I can be friends with my child or children once they graduate and making something of themselves and I don’t have to worry about them.

Listen dads, what we do and teach our child or children will pass from generation to generation and we really need to step it up and stop sugar coating things. This world is getting crueler as time passes by. Correction, it’s our obligation to do right by our children. Real love always and will continue to do right even when we fail. Get back up. We are dads and we will make a difference!
