||Clean7 Parenting Strategies I Learned From Fighting||Recently I had my first fight. Like a real fight. Like two guys in the ring duking it out. Yeah, it was as crazy as that sounded. I’m 39, run my own freelancer business, I’m a part-time stay-at-home dad (with four kids), enrolled in seminary for my master’s degree, and decided to train, and fight. What was I thinking???
