Dads. Are you preparing the child up in the way they should go or are you preparing the path for them?
Joel Triska explains the difficult decision he was faced with when choosing his baseball team of choice. Parents, are you allowing your children to make difficult decisions or are you tempted to intervene when any trouble or difficult decisions come their way?
