We are fast approaching the one year mark since the Be A Champion Dad site took off! Over this time, we have had over 50+ posts with insight into being a better parent and/or person. The odds are you might have missed some of our most popular posts. Below I have listed four of our top posts during this time. Enjoy!
5 “Dangerous” things you should let your kid do– Are you a parent who likes to hover and intervene in your child’s play when they are about to do something scary? If so, then this is a must-read. Lean into their curiosity instead of shutting it down. Coaching them has a much greater impact than not allowing your kids to take on a “dangerous” task.
3 Habits to Help Disable Depression– This is one of my personal favorites, and I use it more often than I would like to admit. Heading into winter and the darker months, many of us may suffer from the seasonal affective disorder. This post gives you some good tips and reminders on how to battle back to a healthy mindset.
Outdoors and Unsupervised…Let’em Play!– This one closely relates to the “5 Dangerous” post listed above. Unsupervised play is required for kids to develop into well-adjusted adults properly. Heck, if my kids are acting up and fighting indoors…I boot them outside and get them running. The outdoors is the elixir that heals all of our souls. Get them out there and let them be!
Traditions: The Binding Stories of Our Life– As we rumble on into the holiday season, take a moment to pause and reflect. Traditions (whether societal, family or personal) play a wonderful role in our life. Traditions provide meaning and connectivity with others and our own divinity. Whether you dreamed it up or it has been passed down through generations..take part! Traditions have value and help you tell the story of your life.
