Honesty. Transparency. Strength. Perseverance. Overcoming fear. These are themes Devon and I have faced in all areas regarding our relationship, divorce and communicating between the two of us (and with you!). However, the effects of these themes and handling them to the best of our ability with our kids have been amazing. This Father’s Day, 2013, I read an article by a blogger for the Huffington Post, and I swear, it was something we could have written, though I doubt with such eloquence and poignancy.
Be as honest as you possibly can be with your kids. Don’t wait ’til they’re adults. Kids can handle way more than we give them credit for. They are also quicker to forgive us than we are at forgiving ourselves.
Just come hang out with ours. Their awesomeness will blow your minds.
Thanks, Seth Taylor, for writing this piece.
Devon, Emily, Maddie, Kate and Thomas Reese (and Felipe… duh!)
