Parents are often both saddened and angry all at the same time, feel a great deal of self-doubt in their parenting, and find themselves becoming frustrated saying things to their child they sincerely regret.
Dads start out with a disadvantage from the moment that their children are conceived. Sure, they are their children just as much as the mom's, but it doesn't always seem like that
I think that dads start out with a disadvantage from the moment that their children are conceived. Sure, they are their children just as much as the mom's, but it doesn't always seem like that.
I'm a longtime educator. Recently, I packed up my office at school to come home for the summer. I had collected cards and notes from students during the course of the year, written by those same teenagers we all accuse of being self-centered. They're not.
I played baseball for 17 years of my life. During that time, I had many different coaches and I began to notice repeating patterns among them. Coache...
Because I'm worrying much less about whether or not my work is good enough. It might be, and it might not be. It's just not worth the energy it takes to worry about it - especially when I could be putting that energy into the work.
