Thank you for teaching our children they can do hard things. Next » 7 of 10 « Prev
You take them on challenging outdoor adventures that not only provide them opportunities to appreciate nature but also to develop self-confidence. You don’t give into their whining when they want to avoid doing something difficult, and you handle their physical pain much better than I do.

You’re the go-to parent whether one of our children needs to take a trip to the hospital or just needs a shot of encouragement.

You’ve been by the side of each of our children as they’ve learned how to swim, ride a bike, climb a mountain, perform on stage and face a bully. You will always be their first hero.

And thank you for being at at home Dad. The bring home the bacon thing is applicable to many, but not all.
