It Takes a Village

Hello everyone. I appreciate you checking this out. I have been an elementary school teacher for 17 years, and a dad for seven. I have seen a lot in those years. I have seen the impact good parenting can have in a child’s success. I have seen the impact bad or absent parenting can have in a child’s struggles or failures. I have seen the resiliency of kids who have overcome obstacles. Before I had kids, I had a lot of opinions about what I felt parents should do. My experience as a teacher formed these opinions. Since I’ve been a father, I have even stronger opinions. Some lean the same way as they always have. Others have shifted to the other end.

The last few years have led me on a new mission. My mission is to use my experiences and my knowledge (granted, it is self-perceived) to help equip myself and other fathers with tools that will help us all accomplish one goal: to raise our children to be responsible adults that show strong character, work hard, selflessly serve others and make their own positive impact on the world.

I need your help. I hope I will say something that will interest you, cause you to act with your own family, and send it to someone else you know. I need your stories, your ideas, your suggestions, your successes, your failures, and anything else you want to give me. I would love to post some “guest posts” from all of you. Obviously I don’t know everything and don’t have all the answers (although some might think I act that way). I don’t want to do all the talking. I want to share my thoughts to help you grow, and I want to hear your thoughts so I can continue to grow. To change the world and help our kids, we need to all come together. It’s going to take a huge team effort to make an impact. Would you join me? This isn’t a place where everything is bright and cheery. We will celebrate successes, but also work through failures.

I look forward to this journey, and I hope it lasts longer than one post. Leave me a comment letting me know you are on board.
