45: Talking Games and Sports w/guest Chris

 Today we are back with guest Chris. We’re talking about games, teaching your kids about losing, and how to process losing. It can be difficult as a parent to try to convey what it means to lose at a game. Taking the time to help our children through these moments and help develop them as they grow into adulthood is a very important lesson. 

44: Teaching Your Kids How To Handle Loosing A Game

Playing games and teaching the lessons of being a good sport while winning as well as processing how to take a loss is something all parents teach their children. In todays episode I share my experience teaching my son as well as two other dads take on how they play games with their kids.

33: Learn To Break Up

We all know those people who break up one day and then get back together the next. Im not here to throw anyone under the bus but I did think it would be an interesting subject to talk about on todays podcast. Dating in our school years prepares us for dating as adults. So as a parent it begs the question when do we allow our kids to start dating? Do we even need to "allow" them to start dating or do we let them make that decision on their own? All this and more on todays podcast.

32: My Son Told Me He Had A Nightmare

Today marks the first time my son has actually expressed to me he had a nightmare. Most nights he has woke up crying we would assume it was because of a bad dream but we also have to run through the check list of what else it could be. He wouldn’t express what was bothering him in the past and that was a big reason for checking his temp, his bedsheets, an anything else it might be. So to hear him tell me he had a bad dream was first off sad, but second kind of a relief because now I had a footing to stand on when helping him through his feelings.

29: What Best Suits Your Kids As They Build Their Credit?

Building credit is something we all have to experience as we transition from young adult to adulthood. In a DM with @tricia.snaps.fit.pix she shared how her son is looking to build his credit. As parents we often want to tell our children what to do. With years of experience its had not to. However Patricia put it best when she said that rather than telling him what to do she was instead looking for a path that would best suit him.

24: Glen Mills School

What do you do as a parent when your kids are mistreated by school faculty. In the case of Glen Mills School things got to the point where the law had to step in and all students were removed from the campus. With a secret history of physically abusing students its a wonder how this schools culture went without repercussion for so long. My wife and I often have hypothetical conversations about how we would handle things if our children were in the same situation. However with our kids too young for school I really want to pass the question off and hear what you guys think. Have you been in this situation as a parent? Do you know someone whose gone through this? How did you or they approach things?

16: Sunset Engagement Session

Today on the podcast Im talking about a sunset engagement session I have booked for this weekend. Some of the things I like to prep mentally leading up to any photo session is a list of poses as well as what gear I would like to bring. The location of this shoot will be the dunes so having the proper cleaning tools on hand is important when working around sand.
