Rich Grogan is a dedicated master martial artist, inspirational leader, best-selling author, and devoted father. As the creator of the Grogan’s Bully Proof System and author of “Becoming Bully Proof“, Master Rich Grogan aims to empower 10 million kids and adults with hope, faith, and confidence to believe in themselves and stand up to every bully they face, both real and in their minds.
In a recent Dad Edge podcast episode with Larry, Rich shares his passion for personal growth, discipline, and self-improvement, focusing on the challenging aspects of parenting and guiding kids through their formative years.
As parents, it’s natural for us to want to be heroes to our children, shielding them from life’s adversities and serving as their role models. However, it’s crucial to recognize that our kids need to be the heroes of their own stories. We can act as guides, assisting them in making the right decisions, but they must ultimately find their own balance and become their own heroes.
One way to act as a guide is by being vulnerable and transparent with our kids. Sharing our personal experiences, both positive and negative, enables our children to learn from our mistakes and successes. Additionally, providing them with the necessary tools and resources to make informed choices is essential. It’s also vital to discuss bullying with our kids and explore ways to prevent it, helping them develop the skills and strategies needed to stand up for themselves and others.
In conclusion, parents should strive to be guides, not heroes. Our children need us to support them and equip them with the necessary tools and resources to become their own heroes. While we can provide a safe haven for them when they require assistance, they must ultimately be the heroes of their own stories.
