There is no doubt that raising children can be a hard task, one that only gets harder as they get older. As a mother of six children, I know how stressful that job can be at times! I believe every parent wants what is best for their children, to become responsible well rounded individuals and live a long, healthy and happy life. As children get older the pressures from society and their friends begin to take hold pushing out the ideas and loving wisdom from their parents. Let’s face it, at a certain point we parents are no longer cool in our kids’ minds.
A local Broken Arrow dad has taken a stand against these pressures and is showing his daughter just how cool he still is. Brian, a local business man, started this journey two weeks ago and is already changing not only his daughter’s mindset but her 3300 Instagram followers minds as well.
“We are all very busy people and we think that our kids are doing okay. What we don’t know is that society creeps into their minds and replaces parental values and influence over our children. As parents we don’t realize it until its too late. I wanted my daughter to realize “I know your growing up and you are seeing boys in a different light but I want you to find a man that cherish’s you like I cherish your mother.” I need to shower her with hugs and kisses. I need to be the one to tell her I love her daily. I need to show an interest in the things she likes.”
Help this Dad prove to his 14 year old daughter that Dad should be the #1 guy in her life. He only needs 12 million Instagram followers to match Shawn Mendes. Apparently that is the standard for cool with 14 year old girls. Either way we think this Dad is pretty cool!
