I told both, "Kim, Lance, you don't belong to me. You belong to God who loaned you to me for us to mutually-influence each other. I'm so excited God picked me to be your dad. Practicing leadership and parenting skills earned for them "creativity dividends" jointly, which were invested in teddy bears, construction toys, and books.
I delegated to them not to the teacher the responsibility for their learning. They also selected the produce which we ate. I asked God's help and the kids' help to love the kids unconditionally and to treat them as well as I treated my very best grown up friends. Thanks to their leadership, we discovered on over 60 routes between home and school in Silicon Valley traffic; it was a blast! You can learn more about us here , or you can give us a shout. But hey, vinyl made a comeback! Frampton has four children; three with his first wife - a 15 year old girl, 13 year old twins, a boy and girl — and a baby under one with his current wife.

These days a much more balanced view is the order of the day. In the past you were pushed to be a certain sort of parent, a dad had to behave in a certain type of way, so did a mum.
I think with a more diverse society comes a more diverse way of looking at parenting. I think you become a better leader by being a better father and you become a better father by being a good leader. They are task, not people focused. Modern leaders need skills like emotional intelligence, coaching, and a question orientated rather than dictatorial approach. This means you need a strong foundation of shared understanding. Take how you manage your time between family and work.
When it comes to networking or being out in the evenings, I focus on where the business value is, rather than going out for the sake of it or to enjoy myself. If things get too out of balance my wife tells me. My wife's world was focused on them, but my world was expanding with work, international travel and everything. I was being challenged for not being a more present dad. It was a time of conflict as opposed to working to find the right balance.

The other big thing I do is be very deliberate and planned with my time. I knew I had to make sure I was there for the important things in their lives and had made the space to build relationships with them. I contracted with myself and with my new wife that I would prioritise being there for important moments in their lives over anything else.
I get it wrong sometimes and have told my kids to call me out on it. I was brought up in a culture of 'presenteeism', jacket on the back of the chair type of thing. Tear sheets may be sent by regular or electronic mail to Marketing Services.
