Ashley and I

Posted on: 02/15/12 9:22 AM | by Jonathan McKee

A few weeks ago I shared with you how my youngest daughter Ashley doesn’t think I’m funny anymore.

It’s not that we don’t laugh together any more… we do all the time. Ashley has just proven to be my toughest audience. I used to be able to get a laugh out of Ashley no problem. Now it’s work!!!

I guess I’m not the only dad out there “trying too hard.” Because we hear the same thing from another teenager in our new R U Listening video that we just launched on our parents YouTube page. Carly, from Michigan tells her dad to not try too hard to be Mr. Fun Dad. Ashley and I recorded this R U Listening video together… since it hits close to home!

What about you? Do you find yourself trying too hard as a parent at times instead of just being you?

  1. Not too sure if i am trying too hard as a parent, but my oldest son, 14, just told me that I should probably start looking at becoming a Sr. pastor. Trying to figure out if that is because he is my son and sees his dad as just an old guy who thinks he can hang with teens, or is he being serious and should I see if my youth pastor days are numbered.

    As Jonathan would say: Hmmmm….
