10 Questions to Deeper Connection with Your Teen


As our kids get into their teens, they tend to isolate and become more independent. Their thoughts and feelings grow more complex. Asking them about their day at school is not enough to get them to open up about what’s going on inside their heads, and they are not going to volunteer information. How can we better connect with our teenagers?

This is a crucial time for our kids, and the quality of our relationships depends on the quality of the questions we ask. If we want our teenagers to feel free to communicate with us, we have to be proactive about getting to know the person they’re becoming.

In this short episode, we list ten questions to a deeper connection with your teen.

10 Questions to Deeper Connection with Your Teen

1. Would you rather receive 1 million dollars in one month or one cent doubled every day for 30 days?

2. Would you rather be a boss or an employee?

3. If you could have one superpower, what would it be?

4. Describe yourself in five words or less.

5. If you could give every person in the world a gift, what would it be?

6. If you were president and had to choose three people to assist you, who would you pick and why?

7. If you could set one rule for our family to follow, what would it be?

8. Where would you live if you could live anywhere in the world?

9. When do you think a teen becomes and adult?

10. What lesson have you learned in life do you feel has been the most useful?

Why Men Are Better Together

Why Men Are Better Together


Today I’m sitting down with everyday dad and alliance member, Mike. He’s having a great time now being a father, but it wasn’t always this way.

Mike is the father of an 8 year old daughter and a 5 year old son. When his son was first born, he couldn’t understand why he didn’t feel a connection to his baby. He thought something was wrong with him but was afraid to tell anyone about it.

As his kids grew, his noticed his patience was thin, and he was worried he’d end up being “the dad that yelled a lot.” He was also afraid that he wouldn’t have all the answers to the questions his kids asked, and he suffered chronic anxiety. This was a huge catalyst for change.

One of the hardest things for men to do is ask for help, but Mike was tired of doing life on his own. He didn’t want to lean on his wife for everything either. That’s when he made himself a priority and joined The Dad Edge Alliance.

Listen to Mike’s journey as a dad, and why men are better together!

How to Light Your Woman Up

How to Light Your Woman Up with Brandy Salazar


Fifty percent of marriages end in divorce. Out of those that stay together, only seventeen percent report being happy. It seems like the odds are against us. Is it possible to take our marriages, whether they are meh or miserable, and transform them into passionate, thriving relationships?

Today we get a woman’s raw perspective. Brandy Salazar, co-author of The Miracle Morning for Couples, is back on the show. She talks about what we’re missing in marriages, communication secrets, and why your wife never seems to be “in the mood.” She also tells us how to get to know our wives on the deepest level so that we have fewer arguments, more fun, and the most amazing sex ever.

Gentlemen, you’ll want to take notes on this episode. Get ready to learn how to light your woman up!

Brandy Salazar

Brandy Salazar grew up in a dysfunctional home. At fifteen years old she found herself living with friends. She didn’t have a high school diploma. But that didn’t stop her from developing a six-figure real estate business. She met Lance and they got married. They had the house, the cars, the overly expensive shoes, but they were disconnected from each other. By the time they had their two daughters, their marriage was over. Brandy asked for a divorce.

Before making the final decision to end their marriage, Brandy and Lance gave it one more shot. What they realized is that they were not bringing their strengths to the marriage. The talents and effort they used to excel in business were not leveraged at home. When they approached their marriage with the right tools and mindset, they’re marriage went from hate and resentment to love and passion within thirty days.

Using Work to Avoid Home Life

Are You Using Work to Avoid Home Life?


Being a father and husband is full of challenges. Sometimes we feel overwhelmed and unsure of how to handle problems at home. We have the urge to get away. It’s easier to keep busy with work and focus on providing rather than wrestling with the day to day issues of family life.

Today’s guest is everyday dad, Jeremy Bennett. He has been married for nineteen years and is the father of two teenage boys. Jeremy is a firefighter who is passionate about his career. Jeremy traveled frequently and became involved in the world of firefighting as a leader. He lived for the adrenaline and action in his life.

As his sons grew up, Jeremy knew he wasn’t present in his role as a father. His way of dealing with tough times was to leave. One day had a wake up call and realized he needed to find a way to balance work and family life. Now he tries to help other young firefighters do the same.
