Tom Brady Wants His Children To Fail So They Can Build Resilience

January 25, 2023 / Posted by:

I’m not sure how many times Tom Brady got sacked this year during his wack-ass football season, but apparently, it’s affecting what little brain cells he has left. Since he and his true love, football, will be apart for the next seven months, questions about his retirement are finally causing his clean-cut image to get a little dirty. And now he’s taking his frustrations out on his children, 15-year-old Jack (his son with Bridget Moynahan) and 13-year-old Benjamin Rein, and 10-year-old Vivian Lake (his children with Gisele Bundchen) by revealing he’s ready for them to experience a little bit of failure in their lives as well because he believes it will help them build character.

Over on Tom’s circle jerk podcast, Let’s Go!, he was asked about retirement once again and lashed out like an emo teenager who got grounded the night before the big dance at school. In other words, it was right on brand for Tom. And now, People reports Tom decided to deflect his own failures by giddily anticipating the failures of his children. Since Tom is an overgrown sore loser man baby, he doesn’t want to take into consideration how much HE fucked up his legacy. Instead, he’s trying to turn it into a teachable moment about failure for his children, even though I’m sure they look at his life (and Deflategate) now as an example of what not to do.

Reflecting on the end of his NFL season following the Tampa Bay Buccaneer’s loss last Sunday, Brady talked to co-host Jim Gray about being resilient on their Let’s Go podcast.

“In life, you try a lot of things, and you fail. It’s part of life. We try things, we really push ourselves to try something new, and it doesn’t go the way we want. So what do you do? Do you care less? Do you care more? Or do you take the experience for what it was and try to learn from it and grow from it and find the resilience we all want to teach our children?” he mused.

Hey Tom, do you know what else builds character? Parenting! He also barfed up more words during his Tantrum of Truth.

“I don’t want it to go right for my kids all the time,” Brady, 45, explained. “I told them that this morning. I said, ‘I want you guys to fail because I want to see what you’re made of if you fail and when you fail.'”

Brady continued, “Because life isn’t gonna be just a smooth ride, so we have to develop resiliency. You know, schools teach that. Sports teach that, a lot of things are taught through that.”

And as they all walked away, tears in their eyes awaiting inevitable failure, Tom jumped into the air and screamed, “TOUCHDOWN!” because now he knows he’s on the path to becoming the best motivational speaker in the world!
