Men have a special role in their families that they often neglect. There are outside forces that influence your families – and what comes into your home needs to go through you. You are the keeper of the gate – the man who determines what influences are allowed to pass through.
It’s easy for people to hide. It’s easy for people to create masks that cover up the truth of who they are. You should work hard to set the example for authenticity.
Lead your family to a place where they will represent themselves with integrity.
It means you need to be open with your kids about struggles – it means encouraging them to be open as well. There isn’t room for fake in a family.
