The Toughest Lesson I Learned as a New Father


When you become a new father there is so much you have to learn. You’ve walked through marriage for a bit. You’ve learned how to live with and love  your wife and what makes that relationship work. But, being a father brings out a different set of responsibilities. To me it wasn’t the normal things. Changing diapers, feeding the baby, etc. – all those things I was fine with. However, learning how to discipline them and learning how to direct them in the right path were really the toughest things for me to learn. To tell you the truth, I’m still learning that after seven kids! They’re all a little bit different. Each one responds differently. Finding out what makes each of those young ones tick was the biggest challenge for me as  new father.

How about you? What was the toughest lesson you learned when you became a new father?
