My name is Wendell Jordan Sr. I am the proud parent of three boys.
I started this blog in 2009 because I wanted to talk about positive parenting from the perspective of a father. Many times, we hear about parenting stories but only from the mother’s point of view. I have met many dads, over the years, who are deeply involved in their children’s lives.
These dads have played an important role in their kids’ development. Every parent wants their child to be a contributing member of society. We all want to help our kids avoid the mistakes we made while negotiating this thing called life.
I knew, when they were very young, that positive parenting would be an important part of their lives. It became apparent that my kids were watching me very closely. I knew that I had to work hard to make sure that I practiced what I preached. All kids look to their parents or that parental figure for those things that will help them get through life.
There are three things I have learned about being a positive parent:
The first thing is that I am these kid’s role model.
The second thing is that I am their parent not their friend. That distinction had to be made. We are not on the same level and it becomes easy to deploy discipline when everyone understands their role.
The third thing is that I am the parent for life. There is not cut off switch. There is no cut off age. As long as I am alive, I’m the dad.
These issues are important because positive parenting is a process that can lead to a situation where everyone can be a winner.
I want to make it clear that I am not an expert. I just want to create a place where this discussion can exist.
I look forward to hearing about your parenting experiences.
I LOVE BEING A DAD!!

I created this blog to discuss these issues because I feel that parenting is a positive process where everyone ( parents and kids) can be winners.
I am not an expert , but I feel there needs to be a place where an open discussion on these issues can take place. This is why I created ILoveBeingADad.com.
Join me. I look forward to reading and learning from your comments.
