Travelling with Six Kids

It's an adventure | Chad Hufford | Episode #3

In the latest episode of our show, "Two Dads in a Lab Trying to Be 2% Better," we had the pleasure of sitting down again with Chad Hufford, delving deeper into the dynamics of managing a large family and the philosophy of constant improvement.

This time, our conversation veered into the personal territories of vulnerability, courage, and the conscious effort to model behavior for our children that we hope they'll emulate in their future relationships.

Chad shared his experiences of traveling with a family of eight, the logistical challenges, and the moments that test patience but also build character.

He recounted stories that could easily be scenes from a comedy-drama movie, such as the ordeal of not getting the reserved vehicle at the rental agency and having to adjust on the fly, which in itself teaches a lesson in adaptability and keeping a cool head under pressure.

The discussion took a turn towards a more introspective dialogue when Chad spoke about the evolution of his parenting approach. Moving away from the traditional "tough" parenting model to embracing vulnerability and emotional openness. Chad's honesty about his journey from trying to be the infallible patriarch to acknowledging his fears and uncertainties opened up a space for us to reflect on our own parenting styles.

It's a powerful reminder that our children watch and learn from us, not just in how we celebrate victories but also in how we navigate challenges and show up for each other in moments of difficulty.

Chad's perspective on raising a family as a team where everyone has a unique role to play, much like in a football team, was particularly enlightening. It emphasized the importance of individuality within the unit, where each member's uniqueness contributes to the family's overall strength and cohesion.

As we wrapped up, Chad's final thoughts resonated deeply.

The change we wish to see in the world starts within our homes, through the values we instill in our children and the examples we set.

It's a potent reminder that our actions and words shape the future, one family at a time.

To all the dads out there, remember, it's not about being perfect.

It's about being present, being real, and striving to be just 2% better every day.

Join us next time as we continue to explore the highs and lows of fatherhood, sharing laughs, lessons, and everything in between.
