Do you have a network of other young parents that support each other? Kevin reflects on the importance of fellowship for young dads.
Highlights from Kevin’s vlog about the importance of fellowship for young dads:
‘Sometimes you need to be around people who are in similar situations…’
Read Kevin’s story
From my experience I found that my friends changed and for me it’s not bad to change friends. Sometimes you need to be around people who are in similar situations that are actually influencing you, helping you and showing you that there is a better way as well. So if for example, you are a young parent and you don’t surround yourself by young parents and you are going through all these battles on your own. Then who else can you lean on and talk to? And I think for me that’s important. The power of network, you cannot miss that, I call it fellowship. It’s important to have fellowship with the right people.
Being around young parents in a similar situation will help you do much within your own experiences and it takes off the pressure off as well. The minute you have a conversation with another young parent and you find that they are going through similar issues, they may have dealt with it slightly differently, it just helps. Sometimes they don’t even have to tell you what to do but just in the conversation you are having with your peers in similar situations you find a way. I’m quite fortunate to have some really good friends who are out there doing really well for themselves. I call them inspiring young mums, young dads.
