I have heard some honest discussions from Operators who prioritized Career over Fatherhood. You can do both, it just has to be a conscious effort.
Marcus is doing research and creating a practice to coach men how to be better Dads. This is a phenomenal idea, parenting does not always come naturally, and having a coach may be just the answer. In this 2 part discussion Marcus addresses:
1. Creating a Dad-Identity- seeing yourself as a Dad; understanding the importance of the role.
2. Consistency- discipline, routines, keeping promises.
3. Importance of play.
4. Not perfect, PRESENT-putting Dad time on the schedule; focusing attention on them; listening.
Holiday season is an important time to reflect on family, and what we can re commit ourselves to.
I hope this is meaningful during this time. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
