Vlogging On YouTube With Family
Hope every father out there had a wonderful fathers day! Hi friends, being a father has been the one of the greatest roles of my life. When I was awarded custody of my daughter 6 months ago everything changed in the best way possible. For many years I had struggled getting time with my daughter even on the short weekends that were legally scheduled. I missed quite a few fathers days but now everything has changed and I am quite enjoying being a father full time.
Promoting an Open Mindset
I recently read a book called “Mindset” by Carol Dweck that distinguishes between 2 types perspectives. People with a closed mindset and people with an open mindset. In as little as a nutshell an Open-Mindset model is one of continuous forward thinking and learning. It frames your mistakes and ignorance as an obstacle and positive journey to be overcome. A Closed Mindset, on the other hand being the judgement avoiding learning model that sticks to what it’s already good at. All while trying to maintain being a novel academic beacon for display and status. The proven overwhelmingly obvious benefits of attaining an Open Mindset is made clear in this book. In the process it got me thinking a great deal about how I am parenting.
