146 - Five Principles to Be A Great Dad!
Hey Guys, Sorry for being out for the past three weeks. I was done hard with COVID Pneumonia. But I'm finally among the living now. I had a conversation earlier this week that made me ask myself, "what are some key principles to being a great dad?" I've come up with 5 that I think is a great place to start. Join me as we explore five principles to be a great dad: #1 Your kids need YOU. You are what they need. Be present. Be engaged. Be Involved. #2 Develop empathy and perspective for them as children. This is the first time they've faced certain challenges give them space to go through them. #3 Explain the why? Not just cause I said so. #4 Be the dad you would want. What kind of dad would you have wanted? Start by being that dad then grows from there. #5 Show your kids that you love them. Related to this show them that you love their mom. If you have a baby momma show your love, respect, and honor. Your kids will emulate how they see you treat their momma. I'd love to hear some of your guiding principles. Send me a DM or email. Also make sure to check out my new book "Learn To Dance With The Currents of Life - When you feel like you're drowning" at https://www.jodysedrick.com/new-book Thanks for joining me every week!
