The transition from childless adult to being responsible for the life of another human being is dynamic and life altering. Sleep becomes a luxury and sex, at times, a distant memory. Yet, to become a father is such a beautiful honor and the unconditional love that we have for that child mandates that we make changes within ourselves. “When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.”
Below are 5 activities good fathers, aka All Pro Dads, should stop doing. They do not apply to all, but are common and should be addressed.
1. Substance Abuse
Drugs of all kinds flow all around our society. So many lives are destroyed and so many families crumble because of substance abuse. Don’t let this be you. Start by taking inventory of whether smoking, alcohol, prescription drugs etc. are altering the trajectory of your life in a downward slant. If they are, get help for the sake of your family.
