Why Kids Lie and What Dads Can Do About It

Why Kids Lie and What Dads Can Do About It

We usually interview an alliance member on Thursday Throwdown, but this week’s going to be a little different. This is about being a human and fallible dad in the midst of some challenges with my 11-year-old son. He’s been caught in a few lies lately, and that’s the type of behavior a dad wants to get in front of right away.

Why do kids lie and what can dads do about it? How do we punish them without making them feel as if we only exist to make their lives miserable? How can we make our kids understand how difficult it is to be a parent? You’ll find out my personal experience in this episode.

Wake Up the Hero with Wes Chapman

Wake Up the Hero with Wes Chapman

The story you’re about to hear is unlike anything we’ve ever had on this show before. Today we have mega-entrepreneur, Wes Chapman. He has been featured in Forbes, Inc., CBS, ABC, Tech Crunch and TEDx. He is a husband, a father of two, and the founder of A Human Project.

Wes may seem like the picture of success, but he has a dark and painful past that many would not survive. From the time he was born, Wes was physically, sexually, and mentally abused. He was abandoned by his father and then his mother. Then he was put into group homes and psych wards where doctors told him that his mental and emotional problems would prevent him from ever living a normal life.

Wes Chapman believes that absolute self-honesty is the key to healing and he is pure proof. In this episode, he shares the story of his incredible transformation, and how he triumphed over victimhood to wake up the hero within.

Wes Chapman

Wes Chapman was so neglected as an infant, that at 3 1/2 months old he was diagnosed as having failure to thrive, which means he didn’t grow and develop properly because his physical and emotional needs were not being met.

Shortly after that, his father left his mother and she married a man that Wes can only describe as pure evil. At the hands of this man, Wes endured physical, sexual, and emotional trauma until he was 6 years old.

Wes’s mom soon gave up on raising him. He was put into the system and spent the next year in and out of psych hospitals. Doctors considered him “broken” and that the best they could do was medicate him and keep him institutionalized, but one day, a woman walked into is life. She became Wes’s mom and hero.

Fast forward to today – Wes has overcome his trauma and victimhood and helps other children and adults do the same. He believes in what he calls H cubed.

  • Honesty
  • Healing
  • Hope

Show Highlights

  • How Wes’s step father literally put him and his siblings in the doghouse. He made them wear a collar and chained them to the fence.
  • How Wes used to wake up in cold sweats watching his sister get molested.
  • How once in a psychiatric hospital, he beat the walls until his fists bled. This was in a padded room.
  • How a voice inside him decided not to tolerate his existence.
  • The remarkable story of the woman who took him in and cared for him.
  • The powerful idea behind H-cubed (Honesty, Healing, Hope).
  • How he finally got over his sexual abuse and was able to develop empathy toward the men who abused him.
  • How he became addicted to success in such a negative way that he had to walk away from everything.
  • His epiphany when he finally knew that his purpose and passion was to be like the woman who saved him and help others like him.
  • How he stalked Gary Vaynerchuk.
  • Why we need to stop wasting time and energy making up for our weaknesses and put all our effort into our gifts.
  • What manhood really is all about.
The only way you can take care of your own shit, is to take care of it with yourself. @wesleydchapman 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!

4 Pillars of Effective Leadership

4 Pillars of Effective Leadership

On today’s Thursday Throwdown, I recap the 4 pillars of effective leadership that we discussed in the Dad Edge Alliance membership community call last week.

Good leadership skills are not only essential in work and business, but also in our roles as fathers and husbands.

4 Pillars of Effective Leadership

1. Honesty

Honesty earns respect and trust. Be direct and straightforward, but in a tactful way.

2. Delegation

A true leader will step in and take ownership when things go bad, and he will push people into the spotlight when things go well.

3. Adapting to Change

Standing still means falling behind. If we’re not challenging ourselves, we’re standing still and the world will pass us by.

4. Strategic Thinking

A leader must always think about what’s going to happen next. Be proactive instead of reactive.
