The young boy had been arguing with his parents since getting home from school. He had been irritable the last few days. The father asked him “what’s bothering you?” The young man looked toward the floor then answered in a low yet obviously angry tone “you’re never around, you’re always working”.
The next morning , the family ate brealkfast and as the mom washed the dishes the boy and his father prepared to go to school and work. As they reached the door, the father took his sons bookbag from the boys hands and replaced it with a fishing pole. The boy inquired as to what the father was doing. The man looked at him and said “I’m taking you to MY secret fishing spot”.
They drove for an hour and then fished all day. They laughed, walked and talked. When they got home the boy hugged his mom and told her “we got a few bites but didn’t catch anything”. He then smiled all the way to his room. The wife looked at her husband and asked “YOU didn’t catch anything”? He kissed her, looked at her and said “that was never the point”. #eppy #parenting #father #love #givethemtime
