#dadlife rant – Our children see how WE handle adversity

These times will shape our children in ways we can’t imagine. I remember my parents going through so much adversity as I was growing up and the way they handled that adversity shaped my life. I will forever be grateful that they showed me how to overcome, not with words, but by example.

Our children may not fully understand what’s going on but they see more than we know. Today it is OUR choice how we confront our challenges. But one day when our children go through their own adversity they’ll remember how WE handled adversity. And in that moment it will be THEIR choice.

Will our example guide them?

Or will our example be another thing they’ll have to overcome? ⁣

Just a thought.
