Before we start, I need your help.
Do you have regrets in life? You should. There is nothing wrong with them. Unless...You did not learn from them.
Tonight I was working on my new book and in chapter four "Stay At Home Dad," I wrote about making many, MANY mistakes as a parent. I was the prime caregiver when Connor, my son was born.
Learning from your regrets can help strengthen your relationship with your kids. For example, admitting when you are wrong is a great lesson.
In the book, I talk about how Connor ended up at Urgent Care, and because of that event, I felt like a failure as a dad.
Regrets are fine as long as you learn from them and do not dwell on them.
