Not Losing It with Your Kids

3 Seconds to Not Losing It with Your Kids


In our last episode with Amy Morin, author of 13 Things Mentally Strong Parents Don’t Do, we discussed how to enhance mental toughness and emotional resilience in our kids. What does that mean for us dads?

As men, we are thrown so many things each day. Keeping up with work, finances, and family can be exhausting. It’s easy to become irritable and susceptible to knee jerk reactions, especially when our kids don’t listen to us. We usually yell and shout, and then feel terrible.

In this episode, I teach you how to use three seconds to create a mental space in your mind and use questions to give your kid a choice to obey.

'Most of the time our kids will fight us. They want to defend their ground just to have some power. You can get them to listen to you by giving them a choice.' #kids #parenting #dads #fathers Click To Tweet

traits of a warrior

The 12 Traits of a Warrior Part 1: The Hard Traits with Chris Sajnog


As men, we do battle every single day. Not only are we fighting to maintain and grow our careers, finances, and family, we fight an internal battle at all times. We have to deal with negative self-talk, bad habits, and anxiety. It’s not to say that life is always a warzone, but it can be challenging, and we can be prepared to face the challenges with a warrior’s skillset.

Chris Sajnog is a Navy SEAL sniper and our third more popular all-time former guest. He is back to teach us how master our thoughts and emotions, become solid leaders, and raise strong children by adopting the Twelve Traits of a Warrior. In this first part of a two-part series, we discuss the six ‘Hard Traits.’

We are the stories we tell ourselves and most people are telling themselves the wrong stories. @ChrisSajnog #dads #fathers #men #warriors Click To Tweet

TT 77 - Making Honesty the Easy Choice for Your Kids

Making Honesty the Easy Choice for Your Kids

I have a special guest in the studio with me today to discuss something near and dear to our hearts as fathers – HONESTY. For this episode, I brought in my eleven-year-old son Ethan, un-prepped and unscripted, to talk about how he feels when it’s time for him to be honest with me and how I can make it easier for him to come to me when he has a problem.

Our kids are usually afraid of us when it times to come and tell us something bad, like getting in trouble at school or failing a test. They don’t want to see us get angry and this can get them into the habit of lying.

Little lies may not seem like a huge deal when they are young, but as they grow into teenagers, having open communication will be crucial. Instead of it being, “Dad, I forgot to do my homework,” it could be safe sex, peer pressure, or drugs.

The best way to make sure we know what’s going on with our kids is to make honesty the easiest choice for them.

We appreciate all the support!

Discipline Disagreements: How to Align with Your Spouse in Front of the Kids

Discipline Disagreements: How to Align with Your Spouse in Front of the Kids

One of the most common conflicts that can destroy a family is an unstable system of discipline. Often, one spouse gives into a kid and undermines the other’s authority. When this happens on a regular basis, children can learn who is the ‘yes’ parent and who is the ‘no’ parent and begin to play the mother and father against each other. How can we avoid these destructive dynamic even if we don’t agree with our partner’s discipline? Find out in this short episode.
