First Things First: Dads Play An Important Role, Even If They Drive You Nuts! Moon Pie Family Pack {Giveaway}

* This post is sponsored by First Things First.



Do you ever look at your spouse rough-housing with your kids and just shake your head? Maybe they're being super-silly or taking a few more calculated risks than you would. I sometimes watch Mark playing rough with Jace and cringe a little on the inside...and guess what? THAT'S OKAY. It's perfectly normal. I'm coming to terms with the fact that each parent plays with their kid and shows love differently, and that children benefit from both the tender and active lovin'. 

Check out this short video about the different roles that parents play in teaching their children important lessons indirectly through play! Keep in mind that it's not necessarily males that always "play rough." Roles are just as easily reversed between parents. You might have had a father who played it safe, while your mother liked to horse around. Either way, balance is the key!
