Recently, a father named Mark Arrington shared an example of how he teaches his son important things in life

“There are no instructions on how to be a great parent, so you got to just wing it. To love unconditionally. We are not perfect and make mistakes. The key is to try your best and learn from your mistakes and do your best in every moment. I make sure to be there for my kids in every way possible and make sure that they have all the essentials to be successful in life,” he says.

One of the ways he makes sure his kids are ready to be self-sufficient and successful adults is to teach them a variety of useful skills. The father never misses an opportunity to do so. When his 11-year-old Markell asked for a new Xbox after his old one broke down, his dad knew exactly what to do before buying him the console. The man asked his son to help to put down the flooring on one of his rental properties and after a long day of work, the boy got what he asked for.

 

After his 11-year-old’s Xbox broke down, the father decided to make his son earn a new one

“I am working to teach him, hard work, dedication, to finish what you start, commitment, if you learn how to do things for yourself, you don’t have to depend on others, hard work pays off,” Arrington said.

Gerald,
Pity that you can criticize them, yet can't spell yourself.

Kingsley,

I'm not a native speaker - how many languages do you read and write?
With a floor like that you can do it again in a year.
And if you overread: I wrote: great spirit.
