#99. Leading a Sovereign Household with Integrity and Intentionality – Matt Beaudreau

Today’s guest is Matt Beaudreau.

We go deep talking about the need to fully understand what it means to be a father figure, being intentionally consistent and clear on who you are as a family unit, why we need to achieve our own goals and live a good life with integrity as parents, making sure you’re not falling into the trap of parenting based on cultural expectations or the fear of what others think of you, being able to admit when you’ve made a mistake and being specific about what you’re sorry about when you are, making sure our kids understand the correlation between responsibility and freedom, why dads need to find a tribe or a community for their sons as they are still growing, and home education and raising dragon slayers.

#96. How To Play and Have More Fun As A Dad – Mike Rucker

Today’s guest is Mike Rucker

We go deep talking about how to choose to have fun during your children’s activities rather than viewing it as a duty you must fulfill, why it’s critical to carve out time in our hectic schedules to play with and have fun with our children, why we as parents need to let go of the need for ground rules/instructions in order to explore and have genuine fun with our children, being a parent with a growth mindset and modeling it for your children, recognizing that it’s okay and possible to learn from our children while also instilling in them the belief that they, too, can make mistakes, and how we as parents can include our children in activities that we enjoy, especially if we’re having difficulty enjoying some of their interests.
