The Power of Freedom

As a Father of 3, I have seen the true Power of Freedom and the joy it brings to my children’s faces. The Freedoms they received from taking their first steps, saying there first words and/or riding their bikes without the need of training wheels. These freedoms, and many more, they have already experienced in life. But the ultimate freedom that they enjoy is the freedom to choose.

If we stop and think about it for a second each action above came from a choice. The first action of learning how to walk, they chose to overcome the bodily restraints placed on them as an infant.

Allow your kids to be with you
Take the time to let your children hang out with you. This is where they learn how to interact with others and see you in action. The best way to teach a child is by being an example to them.
Always tell your children to do the best they can  This gives them a goal to work towards. Allow their best to be good enough.

Follow through on your promises
Most of all HAVE FUN!!!!

Let’s take our current political scene for example. As we have seen over the last year in our presidential election, a great divide has swept our nation and has caused much turmoil inside the homes and hearts of everyone who calls our great country home.
