Although Villanova got bounced out of the NCAA Tournament before the Sweet Sixteen, we at DaddysCool love their head coach Jay Wright. We ran across a recent interview in support of Dove Men+Care and got some fathering gems. One thing I am, if nothing else is honest with my kids about my faults and the learning curve that I am in called fatherhood. Happy #FatherhoodFriday
Jay Wright on being a dad:
“If they are new dads get ready because you are not getting any sleep. Then it is an incredible journey. Try to enjoy every minute of it. Don’t beat yourself up either. Do the best you can as a parent. Be honest with your kids about that.
Being a college coach I want to be at my own kids’ games. Thank God my wife is great at that. You feel guilty when you miss something. You do your best to be at everything. Just communicate that with them. Talk to them. Tell them that you want to be at this game or I won’t be at this game or I made a mistake here, but you mean a lot to me and I want to share things with you. I think the honesty aspect and doing the best you can as a parent is good enough. You will learn that your kids don’t want you to be perfect either. As long as you let them know that you are human and that you are honest with them.”
