12/12/09 forever changed my life, It was the day I became a dad, That day will be etched in history as I became a role model, a mentor, and father figure for a little girl named Zya, who I love whole heartedly and unconditionally. Kids like mines are the future of our society, the next generation, We must ensure that their future is bright and prosperous. Parents have to nurture, guide and lead them in the direction that is the most successful. Education and a sense of morality is key, kids today have the wrong views about life, social media, yes social media, is causing many to focus on the wrong things. Kids only care about pictures, and likes and followers, sneakers and clothes are many priorities. Education, like going to college and getting good grades have fallen victim to the internet and television. Kids need to have a solid foundation in order to succeed in this harsh world we live in now. With that said, a stable household, going to church, in my daughters case keeping the boys far far away at a young age, which in many cases is more difficult that it seems. Making sure her focus is school, and getting a very good paying job, which will pay for her own house and at some point setting her up to have her own family one day. Kids should always be set up the best possible way for success and as parents its our duty to push them to be all they can be.
