Learning to let go is a very important concept to learn for a lot of fathers who feel that dealing with the stress “head on” is going to produce the best result. I find this so valuable now that two of my three children are teenagers.


Get comfortable by
being uncomfortable.

This was some advice I received a while ago and I
still rely on those words during times of change. If you think about it, how would your life
change if you were as good at surrendering as you are at being in control?
Being comfortable with uncomfortable is just another way of saying, “loosen up,
let go for a second and reflect on what you are really stressing about…” I truly believe that everything works out in
the end; and if it’s not working, then that just means you are not at the end
yet.

Learning to let go is a very important concept to learn for
a lot of fathers who feel that dealing with the stress “head on” is going to
produce the best result. I find this so valuable now that two of my three
children are teenagers. But it is important to understand that letting go
doesn’t mean your kids are off the hook for their responsibilities. In fact
this gives them more control and therefore more responsibly. For example,
instead of badgering your child about cleaning their room, make your expectations
and the consequences of not meeting them clear, then allowing them to find
their own way. Don’t micro-manage the task, just let it go!
