“How a Dad Helps His Kid Grow up to Be Great”
By Robert Bohen
Be real. Be vulnerable. You are a human being making life up as you go. You have no manual on living profoundly or raising great kids. Let them know you are capable of bad decisions just like anyone else. If you are reasonable, they are reasonable. Apologize when you mess up and clean up your mess. You will teach them competence and to accept their own humanity. Interview them. Ask them how you can be a better dad, you will be surprised, and grow from it.
