5 ways the dual income household is destroying families

1. Divorce

Money is the #1 cause of divorce in marriage. So it may be easy to say more of it will solve this issue.

More money leads to the stress of maintaining a lifestyle that you have built.

Families need to know that they don't need 2 incomes to be happy.
2. Kids

Kids need attention from their parents, not money. This "need" for money has destroyed the idea of a parent staying at home to give kids the love and support they need in the developmental years.

Stay at home moms are the backbone of society and need to be celebrated
3. Materialistic Mindset

People work to make money in order to do the things they want in life; leading to constant wanting and the need for more income.

The problem is that there will never be enough to satisfy this mindset and will teach kids the same. (Generational Curses)
4. Feeding Your Marriage

Both partners spend so much time chasing more money and promotions that there is a lack of time to grow in your relationship. This leads to resentment and poor communication.

Spouses need time to continue to grow and be intentional.
5. Legacy

Money won't build a legacy.

Wealth is an important factor but not the only factor in legacy. We have to start teaching our families what a true legacy looks like through respect, pride, and generosity towards others. Two incomes are not needed for generational wealth.

If you aren’t building these 5 things

You aren’t growing as a Dad

1. Building Your Kids

Kids don’t need:

Another Electronic
Another Expensive Toy
Another Excuse To Be Ignored

Kids do need:

Another Conversation
Another Camping Night
Another Chance with Dad
2. Building Your Focus

Nothing is more valuable than your time and attention

Attention is so valuable because it creates your reality

Time is so valuable because it eventually runs out

Your kid could be a drug addict

My sister was a straight A student-athlete before she went down a road that led her to prison at 29

4 yrs later she came out clean

Here is how she got there and 5 lessons to keep your kids from the same fate

Time for a 🧵
You never think it could happen to your kid

My dad thought the same thing and quickly learned that if you don’t invest in your kid early that you are setting the up for failure

He was a father who provided but never knew how to really teach his daughters self love
This led to my sister doing everything for approval. It started with excelling in sports/school.

She received the recognition but it wasn’t enough. My dad was busy with work and they didn’t go to believe in going to church so their life centered around work, school, and sports
