As my children progress to teenagers and beyond, I am finding my role in my family less defined and valued. Combined with mid-life crisis, this can be dangerous.

“What our culture calls a mid-life crisis is actually a Sad Clown’s effort to self-prescribe a remedy for his joyless inertia. Instead of filling the holes in his life, the Sad Clown concludes that he is a man whose wife and job are making him unhappy when, in fact, he is an unhappy man with a wife and a job.” – Dredd and OBT, Freed to Lead

As my late grandfather said in my patriarchal blessing, “Your children will learn from who you are than from what you say.” So, even though our role may not seem as important with older/grown up children, it is even more crucial. While it may not be physically exhausting, it requires more character and leadership to make a difference in the lives of older children.

Succeeding at life is meant to be a team support. Who is watching your back?
