I heard a speaker share this parenting story and I loved the principle! A teenage boy was a “car guy,” but his father drove a Chevy. However, THIS father wanted to give his son the dream of riding in a Ferrari so he hatched a scheme that was as simple as it was brilliant. He sent an email explaining his son’s passion to a local car club who, in turn, forwarded his email to all its members.
Guess what happened next?
EVERY MEMBER RESPONDED BY OFFERING THIS KID A RIDE IN THEIR PRIDE AND JOY!
Here’s the moral of the story. For every parent that can’t figure out how to connect with their child … there’s always a way. Even when your kid might be “a car guy” and you drive a Chevy!
Kids need to know their parents. Dads – I’m speaking to you! Care about them and their interests!
There’s always a way when you care enough to find one.
Invest the TIME to show your kids you care about them by doing something with them that they enjoy. While you’re at it you might even want to throw in a ❤️ felt “love you” too!
