Being a great dad will probably be the most important thing you’ll do in your life.
Being a great dad is something to be admired because there aren’t many out there.
Being a great dad is hard AF though, which is why many men opt out of that responsibility. And the kids whose dads bailed are left to either:
- Repeat that same behavior.
- Break the cycle.
Many try #2 but fall short, and who can blame them. They didn’t have a role model to reference. Some of my friends told me, Uncle Phil, from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, was the only male role model they had in their lives.
It’s tragic but true.
As a dad of 2, I can say that I’ve dropped the ball several times, especially with my oldest, Andrew.
When Fit Body Boot Camp started to gain some traction, I was at the office from the crack of dawn until sunset. I worked my ass off to provide for my son, but I was too blind to see I wasn’t providing him a childhood.
This hit me like a ton of bricks. Because growing up as a dirt-poor immigrant in America, my childhood wasn’t like Richie Rich. It sucked!
I used to think Santa Claus skipped our house on Christmas, but the reality was our money ran out before the month did.
So before Andrew was born, it was my life’s mission to provide a childhood for him that I wish I had growing up.
But wasn’t living up to that promise and had to swallow a HEAVY dose of reality. So I then focused on creating awesome experiences I could share with my son.
Now both of us have memories we could look back on and laugh at. Like us playing ping pong, shooting guns, surfing, and traveling.
As a dad, this is one of the biggest things I want, so he can brag about how dope his “old man” was when I’m not around.
This is why many dads up their sons for the Squire Program.
The Squire Program is a father and son experience that transforms boys into young men. And it’s the ultimate Father-Son relationship-building experience you could ask for.
I’ve seen broken relationships become inseparable in less than a day.
I’m a huge fan of therapy, but I’ve never seen therapy do something like this.
If this sounds like something you’d like to experience with your son, watch this.
