Raising kids is tough. Making an indelible impact on your kids is hard these days. There are so many distractions, and crazy ish for kids to get into once they leave the crib. The older I get, the more I realize that many of my aspirations as a father were just plain ol’ selfish. We want so much for our kids, or want them to accomplish so much in life because it would validate our significance as parents. Who wants to be a failure at being a parent? Who wants to be the parent of a bastard kid? Real talk, what person wants to be the parent of a kid that ends up “underachieving in life? Nobody plans on parenting a looser child. I know it’s uncomfortable to hear these types of sentiments, but many of us think ish like this all the time.
I work hard as a PreNup Pops. I want my step seedlings to be just as successful and achieving as my bio-kids. I’m a proud parent My G! I love seeing my kids excel at everything “I think” is good for them.The truth is I intrinsically parent fluidly out of my aspirations for the kids. I don’t question for 1 minute my intentions when instructing the kids about anything in life. I automatically feel like I know what’s best for the kids, and I dare anyone to question me – including their mothers! I parent with a deep passion for cultivating a hunger in the kids for high achievement and excellence in every facet of their lives. What I’m finally starting to understand is that kids are also human (ya think!). And kids have their own desires of what they want to become and do in life.
I’m learning to parent with a greater since of balance and understanding. I determined within myself that my significance as a man is not derived from the outcome of my parenting. My parenting is a reflection of my commitment to father kids with a sense of purpose and vision. I don’t just get up in the morning and start telling kids what to do. I parent by a plan and execute with conviction. What I’m learning to do now is being more of a partner with my child in leading their development as people. The purpose of parenting in my opinion is to guide the kids in a way that helps them achieve their highest potential as a human being. When you have a blended family parenting with a sense of purpose is critically important. No kid wants to be raise in chaos.
Nobody wants to be parented by a dumb a$$ person that don’t have any idea of what the hell they are doing.
Parenting is a privilege. I’m blessed to be a PreNup Pops, but don’t get it twisted, I introspectively grind for my kids. As a dad and father figure, I pride myself on engaging the kids with a gritty mindset that empowers their individuality and independence. I work hard to parent myself out of their need to depend on me to thrive in this world. My role as a PNP is important because it expands the kid’s view of life, and gives them a greater perspective on what it really means to live in this world. You can’t be “down” for whatever is popular in parenting. As a pops your parenting should be rich in substance and focused with direction. For all it’s worth My G your sustained effort as a parent is a reflection of your contribution to this beautiful world we all have to share!
What's good fam!!! I'm a divorced father of (8), and currently engaged to the most beautiful joint I've every seen! Let me break it down (6) kids are my bio-seedlings, and the other (2) sweet-hearts belong my soon-to-be wife! I'm an entrepreneur (hustler), and author. Fatherhood is my calling and passion. This blog is for My G's that hold it down for their "blended" fam, but haven't taking them nuptials. I'm all about empowering fathers and building strong families!
