This Kid's Xbox Broke So He Asked His Dad For A New One, His Dad Made Him Earn It.

A dad from Florida has made sure to teach his boy one of the most essential life skills: one must earn things. Markell's Xbox broke so he asked his dad for a new one. Arrington agreed to get him one but asked him to help put down flooring on one of his rental properties. 

We all know nothing in life comes for free and one has to earn the things to enjoy them. But do we teach our kids the same thing or leave it on them to get surprised by this transition when they step into their adult life?

Mark Arrington, who has served in the military for 9 years, taught his 11-year-old son the importance of hard work when he asked him for a new Xbox. Markell's Xbox broke so he asked his dad for a new one. Arrington agreed to get him one but asked him to help put down flooring on one of his rental properties.

“I am working to teach him, hard work, dedication, to finish what you start, commitment, if you learn how to do things for yourself, you don’t have to depend on others, hard work pays off,” Arrington told.

“If you want something you can work to get it, love unconditionally, respect, honesty, preparation to be a great Leader/Husband for his future Family, be a Blessing to others, put God first and everything else will line up accordingly, own up to your mistakes and learn from them.”
