seeking validation

All children are seeking validation. They seek validation in their classes by working as hard as they can. They seek validation in their friendships by striving to be popular and well-liked. They even seek validation in their athletic abilities by aiming for perfection on the field. But the best place to receive true validation is from their fathers. On today’s episode, pastor and men’s expert Kenny Luck will be discussing his video series The Father Factor and how fathers can best validate their children.

  • This needs to be required reading for new dads! A mentor had me read “Wild at Heart” before my first was born and it set my strategy for fatherhood from day 1. Affirming and available dad, that’s me. Thank you Mark and Kenny for the reminder.
