Raising Strong Girls—A Dad’s Guide with Dr. Tim Jordan


It takes a special skillset to be a good dad to a daughter. We don’t have many shows about raising girls. If you have daughters between ages of five and twenty-five, this show is for you.

Today we are grateful to have Dr. Tim Jordan on the show to give us simple, sound advice on raising strong girls. He is the expert on parenting girls, a counselor, and the author of SHE LEADS: A Practical Guide for Raising Girls Who Advocate, Influence, and Lead.

Dr. Tim Jordan is going to tell us how we as fathers can best help our daughters become empowered and confident. He highlights the unique challenges girls face that dads might not be aware of. He also explains how to teach girls to navigate pressure, speak up for themselves, and discover their true gifts.

Dr. Tim Jordan

Dr. Tim’s love for working with kids began with caring for his five younger sisters. As he pursued a career as a Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrician, he discovered he had a magical connection with girls that was built on trust and care.

Dr. Tim has enjoyed 30 years of experience interacting with circles of girls during his personal growth retreats, summer camps, and school programs where girls share their deepest trials and triumphs.

He helps girls from ages 5 – 25 and provides guidance for parents raising daughters.

SHE LEADS: A Practical Guide for Raising Girls Who Advocate, Influence, and Lead

Girls globally aspire to be a leader in their country, community, and career. Parents hear of the importance of empowering their daughters. Yet they receive very little instruction on how to parent girls to that end…until now. “She Leads” describes leadership qualities that are most in need today and the practical strategies parents can immediately use to help girls develop these traits.

How to Raise a Teen in Today's World

How to Raise a Teen in Today’s World with Marc Fienberg


Navigating the turbulent waters of raising a teenager is different now than when our parents raised us. With technology, they are exposed to so much more than they are ready for. We also are facing new challenges like the pandemic and societal issues.

In this episode, Marc Fienberg is going to teach us how to raise a teen in today’s world. He is the bestselling author of Dad’s Great Advice for Teens and we talk about the tough conversations we need to have with our kids. He tells us why we should encourage our kids to not focus on making us happy.

He also tells us how to get our kids to open up about sex, drugs, and other uncomfortable issues so that they can make the best decisions even when we aren’t around.

You have to change your strategies and reinvent yourself as a parent all the time.

Mark Fienberg

It doesn’t matter that Marc Fienberg is an author, movie director, strategy consultant, entrepreneur, owner of The Great Advice Group, husband, and all-around nice guy. What matters is that he is the father of four kids, two of whom are teens. He has served as a life coach to his kids for more than sixteen years, and since none of them have been rushed to the emergency room or spent a night in jail yet, it seems like his Great Advice is working.

Dad’s Great Advice for Teens: Stuff Every Teen Needs to Know About Parents, Friends, Social Media, Drinking, Dating, Relationships, and Finding Happiness

Being a teen ain’t easy. Luckily, Dad’s Great Advice for Teens provides 25 short pieces of unorthodox Great Advice, filled with humor, wisdom, and inspirational quotes, to help teens:

  • Build confidence
  • Make good decisions
  • Stay positive when problems arise
  • Be productive with their time
  • Take action toward their goals
  • Develop close relationships
  • Create new, positive habits
  • Follow their passion
  • Trust their gut
  • Take smart risks

What You’ll Learn

08:00

Marc began writing advice for his own four kids who needed different guidance at different stages. Each would receive their own book of advice on their 13th birthday.

09:21

Marc’s career as a Hollywood director.

13:15

Push kids to find out what makes them happy.

Even though you share your genes with your parents. You don’t share your dreams with your parents.

What is a condom virgin?

No one waits till marriage anymore. Sex is an adult thing to do, because the repercussions are adult. Kids need to know the real consequences of disease and pregnancy.

27:50

How to reconnect with a teen who is drifting away from you.

Marc says the later he stays up with his kids, the more likely they are to share.

As a parent, you will get the most information when you don’t look at them.

34:50

Dealing with the pandemic

Don’t shield your kids from the news. They need to know how serious this is. People are dying.

42:30

How to give kids the tools they need to make good decisions when we’re not with them

Tell your kids to go with their gut. There is science behind the instincts we feel.

Talk to your kids about the bad decisions you’ve made. They can learn vicariously through your mistakes and it also helps them feel like they can be honest with you.

How to Arm Our Kids Against Peer Pressure

How to Arm Our Kids Against Peer Pressure


As kids get older, the more susceptible they are to peer pressure and the riskier the things they may be pressured into become. The statistics are frightening, with 35% of all 14-year-olds trying some kind of illegal drug before their 15th birthday. How can we arm our kids against peer pressure so that they will be able to make the right choices when we are not there to guide them?

By practicing role play in advance, we arm our kids with the tools needed to deflect peer pressure. In this short episode, I interview my 11-year-old Ethan who has been experiencing peer pressure. We role a play a few scenarios of peer pressure to practice what he can say when other kids are trying to get him to do something he knows is wrong.
