Unlike television characters, our parenting efforts lack a script.
We make it up as we go along, drawing on what experiences we recall from our parents.
The results are far from flawless.
We stumble and fall. Pick ourselves up and stumble again.
In the beginning of fatherhood, it’s comparatively easy because you are a towering figure of authority in their lives.
You can pretty much do no wrong.
And then they become teenagers and you suddenly have become an asshole.
In this episode of About Men Radio, the four members of the AMR posse who are dads take inventory of how we’ve done/are doing as fathers.
Have we broken our children? Have we crushed their dreams because we took away their iPads for an hour? How do we rate ourselves as dads on a scale of 1 to 10?
As usual, the discussion is brutally honest and funny. Give it a listen and happy Father’s Day!
