As dads, one of our biggest responsibilities is raising well-rounded, informed, intelligent and empathetic children. I try to take that very seriously, but also know the harder you try to teach your child, sometimes the less receptive they are to learning those lessons.
I started the "Dear Son" series of posts here on Dadtography to explore my past, present and future relationship I have with my sons.
It's not all about legacy, but I do often think about what I will leave behind for my sons to remember me by. I hope these posts contribute to my legacy as a dad. I also hope these lessons will some day sink in for my sons. Many of these lessons fall on deaf ears today, but as they grow and grow up, I think they'll come to appreciate the insight and wisdom that a dad can provide his children.
