Grit and Resilience

Dad Edge Tactical Agenda: The Grit and Resilience Toolkit


Being a man and a father means being the leader of our families, finances, and businesses or careers. We are in constant demand and spend much of our time putting fires out.

How can we develop grit and resilience so that everyday problems and insecurities don’t get in the way of creating a life of fulfillment?

What few of us realize is that grit and resilience can be practiced and learned. With hard work, we can toughen our minds and use adversity to grow.

Today we give you a sneak peek into one of our private call teams called the Dad Edge Monthly Tactical Agenda. We discuss a 5 week toolkit that will help you kick butt and take action in your life!

“When a man is pushed, tormented, defeated, he has a chance to learn something.”― Ralph Waldo Emerson

In this short episode, you will learn how to:

  1. Identify the lies you tell yourself
  2. Develop your own creed
  3. Starve fear and feed courage
  4. Celebrate wins
  5. Get comfortable with being uncomfortable

Taking Action as the Head of Your Family


As the head of your family, nothing changes if you don’t take action. If you want to lose weight, grow in your job or business, or have deeper relationships with your wife and kids, it’s up to you to make it happen.

Today we have everyday dad, Mark, on the show. He has been married for thirteen years and has two boys. He joined The Dad Edge Alliance two months ago and shares his insights on how taking action as the head of your family can make your life more organized, fun, and fulfilling.

 

Takeaways

  • How staying curious and humble helps you to learn
  • Why frontloading, or planning all family activities ahead, and using apps like Cozy help the household run seamlessly
  • How to be proactive as a dad and address issues before they grow out of hand
  • Why communication is critical
  • Using forward-thinking instead of reacting to situations
  • How Mark lost 40 pounds by taking action on his health

The Three Pillars of Resilience Parenting: Exclusive Q&A with Chris and Holly Santillo

The Three Pillars of Resilience Parenting: Exclusive Q&A with Chris and Holly Santillo


Having resilient kids is something all parents want. We want our kids to be confident, make smart decisions, and have the ability to triumph over challenges in life. What we often forget is that in order to raise resilient kids, we have to be resilient ourselves.

Chris and Holly Santillo joined us for a live Q&A in our Dad Edge Alliance Mastermind. They are the authors of Resilience Parenting: Raising Resilient Children in an Era of Detachment and Dependence. They are also karate instructors with a combined thirty-five years of experience educating children in their dojos and are raising three boys of their own.

Chris and Holly answer real questions from everyday dads about kids when it comes to failure, respect, and communication. They also share the Three Pillars of Resilience Parenting that will build a strong mental and emotional foundation for parents as well as their children.

 

Some Topics Covered

  • What to do when your kid gets discouraged when trying something new
  • Why you and your kid should learn a new skill together so you can be a beginner at it with them
  • What parents can do to grow more resilient along with their children
  • How to earn the trust and respect of your teenagers
  • Why you should develop a family credo
  • The Santillo’s quest to “worldschool” their children

Saying “Yes” to your Kids’ Requests

Saying “Yes” to your Kids’ Requests

This show was recorded right after The Dad Edge Live Summit and we’re going to share a quick thought from the event that is so important to our kids.

We might not even notice it, but much of the time, when our kid asks us to do something with them, our default answer is “no.” We’re busy. Maybe later. After we get one more thing checked off our endless to-do list.

What we don’t think about is how badly our kids just want to hang out and spend time with us.

Today we talk about changing our default setting. We always have things going on, but we need to stop and think about what matters most. What would happen if next time your kid asks you to play with them or take them out, that your default answer is “yes?”
