What would you say has been the most rewarding part of being a father? My kids make the best parts of my life better. I knew that fatherhood was going to be good, but I had no idea just how good it was going to be. Since becoming a dad, I have more fun, experience love more deeply and am more patient/centered.
The biggest thing you’ve learned from your children is: the importance of saying “please,” “thank you” and “I’m sorry.” What began as simple lessons for them is a challenging lesson for adults. It’s recognizing that I need help, I’ve been helped and sometimes I don’t help when I should.
