The Fatherhood Project

fatherhood project on soul pancake

there is this conversation going on that i’m really interested in.  the subject happens to be on parenting and fatherhood, specifically.  i find, myself thinking about my childhood often and how it has shaped me.  my parents are dear to my heart and often on my mind.  in raising me they did so many amazing things (and stil do) and yet they fell short (because we all do) at times.  i think about being a parent, now, myself and how who i am will play a great part in who my kids become.  scary and amazing.  do you wonder about these things too?

the fatherhood project

my very good friend corbyn is a filmaker (he is the talent behind all the videos you see on this blog) and he just released THE FATHERHOOD PROJECT with soulpancake.

he’s asking the simple questions:

what did your parents do right?  and what did they do wrong?

simple questions with probably not so simple answers.

the thing i love about this project is the conversation that is being started.  many of us, as we mature, are coming to find out that our parents only did what they knew and many did the best they could.

please watch and would you help me spread this video and keep the conversation going?  if the the episode does well than more will be made!  there are so many more stories to be told and conversations to be had.

    This is really interesting. I’m currently in the process of being so mad at my parents for the mistakes they’ve made (ah, my raging youth…) but I’m willing to put things into perspective. These questions will hopefully help me understand their choices better and eventually heal the scars they’ve left on me and finally move on. My mind knows it’s silly to hold grudges, especially against my parents who never raised a hand on to their daughters, but my heart is angry, and I think it needs to be angry for a little while. It’s healthy in my opinion, as long as you do not act upon it. Thank you for sharing this!
