Let me say humbly, you are not prepared, because nobody is. You will face so many challenges you cannot imagine… And accept it, you are going to do many mistakes. And accept it, you kid is going to do it too. Try to learn from him/her, and try to be a model for her/him. Modeling is the best way to teach. Be patient, tons of patience. And love, always love. That is the most important thing. Humbly written, from a father to a father, always learning how to be a better father.
