I tried to explain the names of each sport and how each sport should reflect the tools you use.  Baseball-basketball are not the same

The boys have been wanting to do “tricks” on their bikes. So we built the ramp. Considering they are five I’m ok with it,  next it was dad can you from the 13 yr well let me see. “ used takould” comes into play with a little hold my beer, turned into the boys Mt bike rear wheel folding like a taco under 230 lbs of dad doing and landing a 180.   The wheel folded but I stuck the landing

So I picked up the 13 a new wheel, I dropped off my old BMX bike for a freshener. Minus Covid keeping all the cool parts I always wanted when I was a boy, they fixed it up and I’m rolling.

Kids today don't know how easy they have it. When I was young, I had to walk 9 feet through shag carpet to change the TV channel.

That’s thing has some style. The curves and all.  Really an open spot for me to join a new hobby of collecting schiff I don’t need

I did a thing a few weeks ago

Have any of you hear of ODD
Oppositional defiance disorder?


It’s an expanded version of ADD. 

Max my youngest of the two Has been giving me and momma a run for our money and the school teacher and the day care lady

The logic is they push back for no other reason then to simply push back

More to follow and hope some of you might have some input.   I love this kid and we have involved a councler to see if we can give some other tools to work with besides his temper ( the one just like dads)

As stated in many of those leadership books you were asking about,

The change has got to start with you!  If you know you have a bad temper, work on that first.

I say that because i have seen it too much in this day and age that parents want to blame everything on something or someone else instead of fixing them first.......that spills over into our kids because they look to us for everything and it also spills over at work and causes a majority of the issues there as well.

Dave, I do my best to follow scripture as my guide.  I did not spare the rod, however now that they are 14/17 it’s a different kind of punishment.

Also, always be consistent and never lie to them.  Actions have consequences. It’s always an if-then statement and the consequences are immediate and exactly as I told them.  Resist the “because I said so” and be willing to explain your decision making. It’s normal for kids to challenge authority but teach them how to do it. Respectfully through questioning and not through emotional outbursts. Find out what matters most to them as they get older and take that away from them as a punishment. For mine it’s been the phone or keeping them out of dance events.
