Your kids are built different and that’s ok! #FatherhoodIsLit
My oldest told me he was built different! I laughed but he was right!
He loves the reselling market and for the past few months, he showed my family that it’s not just about sneakers anymore. You can hear about our 1st experience hustling together HERE!
What we thought was a good way for him to learn about finances and entrepreneurship has become more than that. It’s something that he wakes up ready to do and is willing to do at any time of the day.
Every week, we receive something, or better yet, my oldest receives something in the mail. He always surprises me with the things and it leads to discussions on how he just gave away our mailing address for a damn candle.
This one week was different.
Big man started receiving google nest devices and you know I had questions.
My 1st question was live on Instagram, “what the hell are you doing buying nest devices.
His answer was smooth, “Dad, I’m built different.”
Built different because we design them that way!
When my son told me that I couldn’t stop laughing. I must have repeated the “built different” line at least 100 times already.
But it was also a dope reminder of how life works, especially as a father.
My son, YOUR KIDS, are built different! We designed them that way. We teach them everything we learned late in life and add our own twist to it.
We do it with knowledge, time spent together, and exploring all the activities the world has to offer.
That’s a win in my book!
I am proud as f*ck to say my kids are built different. The world is much different than when we were growing up.
Our parents, sometimes even society believe that lessons from the past apply today. They are right, but that’s not always the case. Those past lessons don’t always apply and that’s when we get to flex our muscles as PARENTS.
The internet has brought on lessons our parents never knew we would have to teach and here we are REPRESENTING!
Our kids are BUILT DIFFERENT because they have us and our experiences to set a foundation.
Make your presence felt fellas and tune in!
