I became a single Dad with full custody of my 2 year old daughter in 1999. Me and my daughter were super close until she turned about 13 and the teenager mode started.

It is hard to find things a teenager wants to do with their parents and even harder to find things a teenage daughter is into that Dad is also into.

This is the point of the story paintball comes into.

I was playing semi pro for a team here in Ohio and my daughter loved to come and watch and that progressed to wanting to play.

Now my daughter is 16 and has been playing Paintball for the last 3 years. I have put a ton of money into setup's for her friends and I have a group of about 15 kids playing and staying out of trouble.

The sport, no matter what some people say, builds team skills and can help families stay close. It also gives kids something to do rather than sit on the couch or get into trouble.

Last year on my birthday, my sister-in-law bought me a paintball pass which included all day air, 1 case of paint, and rental equipment. I always wanted to try paintball, but I never knew anybody that played. So, I call several of my friends because it was for a party of 2. It turns out everyone was busy or had something to do. My girlfriend went with me because nobody wanted to go with me. She was scared out of her mind because the "regulars" at the park looked very intimidating with their gear. Skipping forward, I absolutely loved it and my girlfriend came back home with a bruise on her head (lol). Couple of months later, it turns out that my nephew's birthday was coming up. I convinced his mom that he'd love paintball. We went for his birthday and he absolutely loved it. He wants to make it as his sport and so do I. One memorable experience he had on his first time paint balling on his birthday, his gun jammed and had a leak in his marker. A experienced player found out it was his birthday, so the player let my nephew borrow his LUX for a round because he said, " it's your birthday so try to shoot as many friends and family as you can." I thank the player! My nephew and I bond together because of the extreme sport of paintball.

My (to be) niece has never had a father figure in her life, and he mother hasn't given her too much attention either so she has begun to act out a bit. She's 10 now she is just looking for someone who really seems to care for her. Well I'm using this as both a way to bond with her and keep it out of trouble along with if she likes it it gives her a reason to have to behave!
