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.
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.
anything involving our children and signing up for things leaves us with the parenting duty of reading through the paperwork. Unlike a terms of service agreement for social media or iTunes you probably should just sign your name without reading through the fine print.

Today I took my son to see his very first movie at the theater. We saw Toy Story 4 together and it was a lot of fun. I have waited for years to share my love of going to the theater with my children. Sharing experiences we enjoy with our kids is one of the things that makes being a father worth while. I give this movie a must see rating.
Today Im talking about a product my wife came across in the store the other day. Once Upon A Farm is a baby food product that promotes its farm fresh non GMO baby food.
Having only one child can raise some eyebrows amongst other parents. To be quite honest its no ones business why you decide to have only one child. In todays podcast our guest sheds a little light on the topic revealing why he stopped at just one.
Striking vipers is an episode that will beg the question "where is the line when it comes to cheating in a digital way?"

Lets talk about the new season of A Handmaid’s Tale on Hulu. This episode hit me so hard in the feels. My wife and I were really emotional with this one. In todays podcast I don’t really review the episode but rather take time to talk about how it made me feel and what my thoughts were.

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.
One of the things I don’t think is (or at least it wasn’t for me) told before you become a parent is how often your children will test your patience. Keeping your cool as a parent can be one of the hardest things to do when you have sleepless nights, long days, and are in public. All contribute to the perfect storm that tears down your composure and can cause you to raise your voice. In todays podcast I talk about how I lost my cool with our son and how my wife checked me on it. Taking the time to step away and re group was what I needed. I understand it may not be something every one has the luxury of doing it is vital to ensuring you are the calm parent/leader your child needs.

Nesting is commonly coupled with expecting mothers. However in a conversation with a co-worker today we came to the conclusion that we as fathers do a little bit of nesting ourselves. It might not be in the same ways but in preparing for the arrival of our children we nest too. Thank you guys for supporting the podcast. Be sure to hit the subscribe button and leave a review.
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.
If you have not yet had the chance to see this show I highly encourage you to stop what your doing and watch it. This show had me hooked within the first 10 minutes. The fact that this dramatic documentary style of show surrounds a very true and horrific event makes it all the more interesting. In todays episode I share a little bit about my first impressions of the show Chernobyl on HBO. Thank you guys for your continued support of the podcast. Also we are now on Patreon for those of you who would like to support the show further.
Raising children in an era where it feels like everyone has an online presence can present the question “do you put your kids out there on social media?” In todays podcast I share my own views on the topic and why I don’t (or try not to) post my children on my social media.
SPOILER WARNING!!! Spoilers ahead in todays episode and review or the film Avengers Endgame. My spoiler free resting is “go see it” it is a great film. I give it a 9/10
In light of recent news stories about the Fisher Price rock n play sleeper I decided to share my experience as a parent owning one of these. I had no idea of the tragedies involved with this device and only wish to educate my fellow parents to be cautious if you own one.
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?
