Tradition is what defines a family. In our modern age of convenience and distraction, we often miss opportunities to teach our progeny the true traditions of who they are and what their family stands for. It’s become far too easy to rely on sideline parenting, as the convenience of electronics makes for a satisfying, but temporary release from the pressures of parenthood. One must never underestimate the importance of forging the unbreakable bonds of a strong, parental relationship, as it is paramount to the success of every child, and therefore paramount to the success of society as a whole.
My journey into parenthood began over 11 years ago with the birth of my daughter. Since that time my wife and I have been blessed again with four sons. Our family life is happy, loving and chaotic, as many of you with multiple children would already know. The dynamics of managing a household with so many people (and so many different personalities) is difficult but rewarding. It’s from these life experiences that I offer guidance and counsel to those who desire.
Life as a traditional dad can be challenging. It’s not a matter of if, but when, your children will test your resolve with the most outrageous of circumstances. In my time as a father I’ve witnessed my children fight each other, break household items and soil nearly every surface imaginable. Just when you think you’ve reached your limit, as in “they’ll never top that” territory, they will do something you never planned for, breach every security device you could think of, or just plain defy logic (and sometimes physics…) to demonstrate just how unpredictable they can be.
I am humbled and grateful to have you as a guest on my site. Hopefully, I can share my knowledge to help you in any way possible, and I look forward to learning from your experiences as well. I’ll try to post about multiple topics throughout the week. Suggestions on topics are always welcome.
Welcome to the family!
