You know like us a single dads you know like going through through some of the struggles that we have to face justice black men but also having a face the struggles men ourselves that are in a in a woman dominated world. You know when it comes to children at least you know like a lot less weird seeing us a single dads you know pop up sometimes. Like where's the mom you know you know everybody questions Eh.

It's about showing that your kids that you know you may have had to go through those hard times but they still got positive in them too. You know because I can tell you I've been going through a little bit with my baby. You know no being a being a single dad you know. I think she's got a little bit anxiety separation anxiety you know. I've been struggling through that. We'll get more into that later. Let's talk about you guys right now. So what was going on today. What's going on with two times? Focus right now and the two thousand nineteen almost twenty. Two thousand thousand focuses about to be two years deep into this James Okay and business yes sir. So the journeys is that we have been on and the lessons that come with have been amazing understanding that we are single fathers and we face a lot of adversity. Sweet lava hasn't been highlighted. So people are shocked when they see us out in public with our kids and so on and so forth but the big thing about it is to be able to interact interact with them and understand and let them know that you human and that you're GonNa make some mistakes and I think we need to be able to communicate with our key is more. Let them know that we still go through stuff. We're not perfect. and Dan share some of the stuff that we go through so they can understand that we are human and they can learn from as well. Yeah I agree with that. A hundred percent kids. Look at us a superheroes we do. Try to hide everything that like the the real struggles of life that we go through. We try to hide that from him. You Know I. I know that my mother headed for me. You know and I know I know that you know is probably vice versa. Same Old same going down the line because we don't ever want her children to think that we're struggling like that but even even if we do you know I think we should learn to teach them about that struggle and the struggle is real salute. That's real life. You know like his real life you never gonna see all sunshine and rainbows. This is similar to what you say brother because I know similar we talk. We haven't talked in a while but we talk some deep conversations with each each other so I I definitely understand but my situation is totally different. My kids mother my boys by one mother. Uh my daughter by another one super supportive to support okay. Yay Very Ver- man. When I say to the to the one hundreds yeah we disagree? They just supportive so that helps me a lot as well. Yeah see that is native it is needed. It's very needed. You know as they did when and I couldn't see I wish I wish I had that man you know it's a struggle every day you know you gotta go through the gotTa go. I gotta go through the Ringer when my baby Momma. Just just to try to get you know some clemency tunnel just Just to keep it kosher pushing to keep praying pushing you know you gotta give us like I've gotta give give give give but you know there's there's no take that's part of the UH comfortable Philly what you gotta go through but the ultimate results execution your daughter going to be happy.

You're absolutely right when I see her and a days when I don't want to go and we got you got to put your all into your purpose into your pass into what you're supposed to be doing. And she hopes yeah to to the fullest on a different level than you guys because my daughter's a little older so my daughter be twelve next month so she has helped me grow as a man as a Father Isla Amer first relationship but at the same time.

You know to tell you how good you're doing but you also have those people who you know are in the background always chopping you down like A. Ah especially when it comes to men raising girls.
