I remember growing up and like the saying goes"The older I got the smarter my Dad became". I know we have some Dads here with grown children and some very new Dads too. What did we do that helped our children, what would we have done differently? I have these thoughts late at night when all is quiet from the disturbing News of the day. Personally I was willing to let go and allow them to grow beyond my watchful eye when I felt the time was right. I'm sure they heard too much of the difficulties my wife and I faced as a married couple, along with my wife I should have sheltered them from such matters. That's my little combination of confession to the older Dads and advice to the younger ones. Any one else care to share?
