An incredible milestone has been reached by motivational speaker Derek Clark for his hilarious and inspiring rapping dad videos. 150 million views in just the last couple of weeks. This awesome video shows him having some rapping fun with his children. When we say rap, we don’t mean negative words such as cuss words or talking about drugs, sex or killing, but rather a fun positive messages to fill the minds of children.
Derek Clark stated that many children and youth idolize the famous who are more interested in being more recognized and emulated for their lack of clothing, drug use or provocative dance moves. “As a father of four precious children, it is my job which I take very seriously… to consistently instill good values and morals by constantly trying to be an example and reflecting it in my own character. I try to walk the talk as I preach it to my children.” He went on and said, “I’m their dad, their coach, their adviser, I’m not there to go out an have a party with them and be their friend. I’m the dad.”
Clark loves to goes on daddy-daughter dates with is daughter to reinforce how a man should treat her later on in life. He sets the example for her to know what to expect when she is old enough to date. Knowing what to look for in regards to love, respect, acceptance, morals and how the man values children. He states, “ As a father, I don’t walk a line on being my kids friend, I am always far away from that line, far away from the edge. My mission is to be a dad first. There are so many fatherless children out there and I want to make sure that I pass on generational blessings to my kids and not generational curses.”
He also stated, “I think that is one of the biggest problems with many famous kids and their parents today. They are putting their fame above good values and good character. Where are their parents? Partying with them? The role of a parent is to be a parent, not to be their best friend and try to live vicariously through their children.” – Jeannie Law
