Former NFL linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens, Ray Lewis, headlined the No More Excuses Men’s Conference over the weekend. The conference was held in Dallas, Texas and put on by the Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship.
Lewis grew up without a father and told the audience about the importance of fathers teaching their sons how to be men. “I don’t care how good a mom is,” Lewis was quoted in The Huffington Post as saying, “how awesome she is, how spiritual she is. She can never teach a man to be a man.”
I had lunch yesterday with one of my fellow SAHDs, and among the many subjects that we talked about was potty training, especially because I have been jubilantly posting a lot about it on my Facebook page. Basically, my 2 year old son is rocking it.
I told him that I have found 5 things that were really helpful to my wife and, as well as my son, and that I don’t claim to have superior knowledge on the subject, I only know what my wife and I discovered as we navigated our way through this adventure. And after some 10 months of potty training, my boy has been wearing his undies for more than a week with no accidents (including camp, field trips and nap time) and we couldn’t be happier.
