Blended star, Terry Crews give advice to men in his new memoir, MANHOOD.
Here are three things a father should teach his children:
1. How to lose. It’s really not win or lose, it’s win or learn! Show your child how to not internalize failure but to grow from it. There is no one smarter or better than you, there are only those who with practice and a good attitude became better at something they were once not good at.
2. How to win. Overconfidence keeps you from being receptive to new ideas and better ways of doing things. Never brag or gloat but know that good today doesn’t always mean great tomorrow. Humility is not saying you are no good at something — but just submission to the fact you don’t know everything.
3. How to apologize. Every human being goofs things up, and the first step in making things right is owning up to your mistake and apologizing. I often tell my kids if they do something wrong and they tell me the truth and apologize without trying to cover it up, they won’t get into trouble. But if they DO try to cover up what they’ve done wrong, consequences are guaranteed.”
