Low quality parenting can lead to parental burn out! I have often stated that if you don’t continue to develop as a person, you can’t develop as a parent. As a father my function in our household requires me to be responsible for the direct outcome of my family’s health. The weight of that outcome can be extremely stressful without careful, consistent personal development. When Icutcorners, and neglect my development, thepurityof my parenting becomes severely diluted. It’s difficult to remainpureat heart, and produce quality parenting when there are too many issuedilutingmy ability to focus. Mydilutedfocus can lead to a diminished capacity to uphold my responsibilities as aPreNup Pops. So the question I daily seek to answer is what is my parenting cutwithfor real, for real?
…anxiety about adequately providing for my kids…
Often times I let my responsibility to provide become a consuming worry that leads to anxiety. When parenting is cutwith anxiety, maintaining a sense of personal stability is difficult to sustain. I’ve learned to refocus, and continue to develop my strengths as a entrepreneur and all around hustler. As a PreNup Pops I realize that I posses skills and talents that I’m learning how to monetize to create multiple income opportunities. There must be an unequivocal belief that you can “live from what you have been made for.“
My grind to produce economically is rooted in my core belief that I have the power to create the life I desire from the talents and gifts I posses within.
…not being strong enough to protect my fam…
I pride myself in having the ability to handle anything my family needs. The truth is I don’t always feel like dealing with issues regarding my household. Dads weren’t cutout to be the “end all be all” for the entire family. The are times that I get tired, and need to rest from the duties of parenthood. I’ve learned to “make” time for myself. It’s OK to tell the kids that you’re not available for a while. Just because your a PreNup Pops doesn’t mean that you have to be engaged with the kids 24/7.
I schedule my day to maximize my hustle, and plan my downtime to improve my endurance as a parent.
…remaining consistent in my fatherhood…
My greatest desire is to raise kids that are able to fulfill there purpose in life. As a dad I want to encourage my family to holistically realize personal freedom, develop their intrinsic gifts and talents, and achieve individual attainment. As much as I want to inspire my family, my efforts are at times cut with inconsistency. My vision for my household can feel so enormous that I reduce my parenting to just meeting their basic needs. When I sense myself dilutingmy drive to provide quality parenting, I remind myself to be patient. It’s important to seek parental understanding and insightful wisdom to develop the capacity to remain consistent as a Pops. The more insight you personally attain as you mature in experience as a man, the more your fatherhood can evolve. Your cutof parenting directly depends on the degree of time you invest in yourself!
