As parents, one of our biggest goals is for our children to grow up confident with an amazing sense of self-worth. When the going becomes tough, we know persistence and tenacity are important traits for our kids to have. When they are born, children are a blank slate. Although it’s a scary thought, children may well become what adults tell them they are in the early years.
A lot of joy comes from parenting…but a lot of stress comes with it as well. Especially as our kids are just getting back to school, comes a new season of activities, commitments, and increased responsibilities. It's hard to know what to let go of as a parent as we want to accomplish it all, often to the detriment of ourselves and our children.
If you’re looking for an inspiring Father's Day story I want to introduce you to Armoured One founder, Tom Czyz. He created Armoured One shortly after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. With his own children in schools nearby when the mass shooting happened, the SWAT team operator and detective felt helpless to protect his loved ones against an emergency situation.
