We have a tremendous responsibility as fathers to our 2.0’s.  Personally speaking, as a dad to Oliver (8), Lucy (9), and Ella (11), I am constantly reminded that whether I realize it or not, they are always watching my actions and always listening to my words.  Even when it’s not directed to them.  AND…they are like complete sponges as they absorb everything happening in their surroundings. Often times I think that we bank much of their upbringing on what we say to them, how we coach them, and what instruct them to do and not do.  All of this is important, but one thing to also remember is that much of what they learn and who they become in life, not always but very often, can be a reflection of how we as fathers personally live our lives and model life in the real world.  Even when we don’t think they are watching.  They are observant and always tuned in.  Consider how our 2.0’s observe us as fathers:
  • In what we say
  • How we say it (our tone)
  • What we do around the house
  • And what we don’t do
  • How we treat our M’s
  • How talk about and treat other family members, neighbors, and even strangers
  • How we spend our time
  • How we respond in crisis
  • Ways we create peace and fun
  • How we model Christ-like character when we don’t even know they are listening and watching.
Our 2.0’s are always alert.  Observing how we are personally navigating the roadmap of life.  Raising them isn’t just about what we tell them to do and not do, but a lot of it is how we lead at home and model it in real time.  We talk the talk.  But so much of it is also us actually walking the walk. Proverbs 22:6
Train up a child in the way he should go,
Even when he is old he will not depart from it.
Deuteronomy 11:19
You shall teach them to your sons, talking of them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road and when you lie down and when you rise up.
