Kenney then stresses that when it comes to growing up without a father, that situation does not inhibit you from growing up with a father figure, or in other words a positive role model. He states that at the end of the day, it all boils down to how you think about yourself and how you engage with your inner dialogue.
According to Tetreault and Kenney, it is vital to be kind to yourself. When it comes to healthy living, you need to prioritize mental health and shifting your perspective to a more positive dynamic.
