In this week’s blog, we share two powerful stories that can help kids reach their potential. In our first video, Jack Armstrong shares the impact his “tough love” had on his former players. He then connects that to how parents can set expectations and support their children in meeting or exceeding those expectations. His insight and wit in telling the story makes the principle easy to digest. But don’t be fooled, this lesson is often hard to apply.
In video #2, Jack provides a simple and powerful formula that can enable parents to apply the lesson from video #1. It’s so powerful, it should be on the bulletin board for every parent, coach, teacher, or leader. You need to listen to appreciate how applicable Jack’s wisdom is to every situation. Donnovan loved it so much, he highlights it at the end and calls us all to apply it wherever we can, right now.
You don’t want to miss these two fatherhood role models. They give so much value in only a few minutes, we know you’ll want to listen to this over and over again!
Please tell us what you think in the comments. What do you think would happen if we all took these lessons to heart? How can you apply this to your role as dad, or parent? We’d love to hear from you!
