This is my first post. I’m taking a minute to say hello while one child sleeps and the other is outside playing.
I was raised by my mom and my step-dad who, it turns out, dropped the ball to the point that I cannot look to him for an example of dadhood. I met my bio-dad about 7 years ago, and he’s been out of the picture so long that he doesn’t know how to pick up the ball to even drop it. So how do I make sure I won’t screw my own kids up in my efforts to try and raise them without any lasting damage? I don’t know how to answer this question, but maybe you can help me as I start this venture.
