I had to ask the question.
My son Connor and I were headed to his hockey game when I asked him a question that has been on my mind for a long time.
You too should ask the question.
Do you know what your kids think of you as a parent? I asked.
My goal (no pun intended) is to ask our kids and Connor was the first I asked. I simply said, "am I a good dad?" He was a bit thrown off the question and I know he was not ready for a question of this magnitude: but I wanted to ask.
I believe we should ask our kids and not just once but at least once a quarter.
Please let me know if you ask the question and email me, please.
