The Important Lesson I Almost Missed

Family Selfie Guidelines | The Secure Dad

Parents: We Must be Brave with our Kids

I almost missed a very important lesson to teach my son. It was shocking to me to realize how obvious this was and how he needed to know it. I felt dumb to be honest that it had taken me so long to talk to me son about this subject.

Then a second wave of realization hit me in the fact that I had to wonder if I’d ever have this important conversation… ever. Is this one of those things I take for granted as an adult that I SHOULD have told my son, but subconsciously I just thought he knew?

I originally covered this topic in a blog post in conjunction with Ayme of We Thrive Online. You can read the original post here.
