Recently we have added our third child into the family and it has been AWESOME to say the least. Kids are wonderful, and saying that you will do anything to protect them pales in comparison to the feelings and urges you have to do such things. That is why a profession as an athletic trainer has prepared me for my fatherhood.
I spend most of my days protecting kids, none of them my own, but never-the-less protecting them. That is the first domain (foundation if you will) of Athletic Training, prevention/protection. At the friendly confines of my home it is me and my wife with a 5, 3 and 3 week old; making multi-tasking a MUST. But at work I have tons of teenagers that I am protecting, even while sitting in the training room.
