    EP 141 Parenting Tip Tuesday 02112020

    EP 141 Parenting Tip Tuesday 02112020

    Our kids grow up to fast. Case in point: my bonus daughter is coming to the end of her high school athletic career.
    When I watch my son Connor play his sports, I am either sitting with my wife or in a spot where I am alone. I do not sit with or near my former spouse. My wife has grown where she can sit not only by her former husband but his wife and his parents. There are some ex's who can sit together at events: I am not one of those.
    On this Parenting Tip Tuesday episode, I want to let you know that it is okay to do what feels comfortable, not what the so-called "experts" tell you what you have to do.
    I needed to find an email and phone number of one of the parents from the hockey team Connor plays for. As I was looking at the names, it hit me that possibly there are divorced and blended families that I was not aware of. Yes, maybe some of the mom's did not change their last name like my wife.
    There are times when I do mom and dad at the games, but there are times when you only see one of them.
    Many years ago, I was once interviewed on a podcast, and the host asked if "blended families are the new norm?" My answer then and now is still the same: "yes."
    Do you sit near your former spouse? I would love to hear your answer. Please email me:

    This will be part one of a two-part conversation I had with Adrian. We talk about how he started as a sports writer. Adrian was very open from a time in his past when a night of drinking and social media cost him his job.

    EP 137 Parenting Tip Tuesday 7 Ways To Think About Your Legacy

    EP 137 Parenting Tip Tuesday 7 Ways To Think About Your Legacy

    7 Ways To Think About Your Legacy
    Have you thought of what your kids will say after you have passed? What will they say to their children about you even years after you are at your resting place (be it upstairs or downstairs, get my drift) 
     
    This was a conversation I had with a young man named "Bryan" who's father had passed away about two years ago. He was telling me how much he missed his dad, who was a mentor to Bryan. The fun times that they had together. The lessons Bryan learned because of the time he spent with his dad.
     
    After speaking to Bryan, I really started to think about what my son will say to his friends about me when I pass away. I really want to know what my bonus daughters Betsy and Becca will say about me too. 
     
    Do you even think about your legacy? Do you care? I have a friend named "Lawrence" (not his real name) who has three kids. Lawrence recently broke up with his girlfriend, and for the first time in years, he is single. All he would fixate is not having a girlfriend. Several of us told him to focus on his kids and himself. Do you think deep down his kids care if he has a girlfriend or not? They want to spend time with their dad. Again, after speaking with Lawrence, I'm sad to say that I really do not feel he understood that he needed to make his kids a higher priority. What legacy is he going to end up with?
     
    Have you really sat down to think of what your legacy is? Think about it for a moment. What is your relationship like with just not your kid's but your circle of influence?
     
    Do you care what others will say about you after you have moved on? I really thought about this after speaking with Bryan. His face would light up as he talked about his dad. I truly wanted to cry.
     
    As much as I do tell my wife Ann that I do not think about if a person likes me or not: I do care about how I treated them. Does that make sense?
     
    For me, I do not feel that I have been a good enough role model for my family. Currently, I have struggled with my weight, hate my day job, and I feel my depression is getting worse. This is NOT how you create a positive legacy. So, how does someone create a lasting legacy?
     
    I want to share with you my seven ideas to create a better legacy. The order is irrelevant: it's about the execution.

    When I was in grade school, and our class had a field trip to the Chicago area, my dad would volunteer as a chaperone. How cool is it to not only hang out with your dad but to show him off as only a child can. You have that sense of pride of "this is my dad." I correctly recall a trip to one of the Chicago newspapers and my dad meeting us in front of the building since he lived downtown at the time. It was a memory that is tattooed on my brain. I took that life lesson, and when I became a dad, I would do my best to chaperone as many class trips when my son Connor was in grade school. The moral of this story is: step up and sit on a school bus with a group of screaming kids. Do you like the movie "Frozen?" You might not, but guess what, your kids might. My friend and one heck of a dad, James Lopez, who runs a business called "Cool4dads.com. " He told me recently that he received free tickets for a Frozen event that his youngest son wanted to attend. Did James say to his son "no" because this was something that dad did not want to do? Heck no! So the point here is to do things that your kids want to do.  I mentioned that one of my struggles is my weight. We parents really need to think about our health. Our kids will mirror both good and bad habits. All of our kids are either in a sport, or they go to the gym. Or both. In my first book, "25 Tips for Divorced Dads," I mentioned that being physically fit is vital. You want to be on the planet for a long time. For me, in the past, the "Wonder Twins" (this is what we call my son and his bonus sister because they r
