This is a special interview I did for a local Catholic radio show that I wanted to share with you all.
There are a lot of parents out there that think being a good parent means that you’re devoting tons of time to reading books and doing projects with your kids. Oftentimes, getting down in the weeds with them means putting off the things that we need to do as a parent and spouse.
Being a parent is more than focusing on your child’s development and wellbeing. It’s also about taking care of all the errands and work that we need to do as husbands, wives, fathers, and mothers.
There simply aren’t enough hours in the day to get it all done and for most parents, there’s just too much to do.
Today, I’m telling parents it’s okay to get the stuff that you need to done with your child.
If this sounds like an issue in your life, give this episode a listen and share with another parent who needs to hear this message.
