Ephesians 6:4 ~ Fathers do not exasperate your children, instead bring them up in the instruction and training in the lord.
The moment he realized he had become his father. A time that served as an epiphany for him when he was jealous of his own son because he had a roof over his head, food on the table, a good mom, and lots of toys.
We pick up right where we left off with Gus sharing the pivotal story of the time he barked at his son. He conveys the great lesson he learned that day, a lesson all of us that call ourselves parents could stand to learn. We also get to hear how this story impacted how he parented from then on.
