David Caldwell AKA Dac, is an American football safety who is currently a free agent, He played college football at William & Mary. He grew up in a home with a mom and a dad who took care of him and taught him respect, and he always saw and respected his dad as his hero. We discuss the importance of parenting and establishing respect in the parent-child relationship rather than this friendly relationship that doesn’t always command respect. We discuss the importance of mindset and how much your expectations will set the stage for how happy you will be through your own goals and achievements. The importance of surrounding yourself with the right people will really determine where you end up, which is something you have to put effort into because those people won’t just show up out of nowhere.

“My parents never tried to be my friends. My parents were my parents and now they’re my best friends, now that I’m an adult. So I feel like too many times parents try to be friends to their kids when you just need to be a parent.” 7:0
