Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.
These dads have gone to a point where there is enough realization in them and they are trying to make a conscious effort to learn and improve their lives through a variety of ways. These men are mostly seen asking for advice and want to correct themselves. They oftentimes look for a fresh start so that they reconcile their past differences with their wives and kids. They often are found to have a bitter past marred by quarrels, fighting and also physical violence in some extreme cases. Some of them want to learn and improvise whereas some of them still continue the same abhorrent behavior onto their next family and are unwilling to learn. They have a deep void and sense of vacuum in their lives which gives them a sense of discomfort and insecurity.
They often have low self-esteem and experience mood swings. They want to ask questions in order to understand what it all really meant but are unable to find satisfactory answers. They also have a lot of hidden aspirations and desires that are unfulfilled and would have in the past resorted to alcoholism, drug addiction, and other addictive substances to fill that void in their lives.
