I was feeling bad. I noticed I was treating my kids bad name calling and labeling them like my dad did to me. But thanks to this program I'm making great strides with my relationship with them.

Enjoyable and to the point

I am going to be honest. I started to write a review because Mark said something that I completely disagree with and he made the comment on that show to write a review and let him know. He said that his infant was crying because he wanted to be held not because something was wrong. To the crying baby, being held was a need at that time, I think, I wasn't there. From my experience babies need to be held and crying is how they communicate. The baby wasn't crying, just needed that security. Now, I gave the show a 5 star because one thing I disagree with shouldn't condemn it. Mark seems like he is really interested in helping men become what they need to be for their kids and talks about it on a guy level with out a bunch of rants and stats. The show is enjoyable and I recommend it.

Rank #3: Episode 70 - Finding the Pain Point

Podcast cover
Read more

For every action, there is an equal an opposite reaction.  Sometimes that reaction is a consequence we would prefer to avoid.  

When our children are forced to face the consequences of their poor choices, they will quickly learn to modify their behavior to avoid those consequences.  Parents who threaten consequences, but do not follow through, or parents who feel guilty and so do not allow their children to experience any uncomfortable consequences are not doing their children any favors.  

Call it tough love, but letting our kids face the reality of consequences will ultimately produce mature, charactered children.  Not only that, it will restore a modicum of peace to our homes.  Isn't that what we all want anyway?

Rank #4: Episode 69 - The Toleration Myth and Living in a Positivity Bubble

Podcast cover
Read more

It seems all we hear about today is the subject of toleration.  Does toleration mean acceptance?  Does it mean endorsement?  Does it mean empowerment?  We'll talk about that.

And while we are on the subject, we will talk about the mistake of living in a virtual world where the only voices we allow in are the ones who affirm us, but never correct or challenge us.  

Don't miss it!

Do you ever feel like you are trapped buying gifts that don't mean anything, for people who won't appreciate them, and won't remember them?  Do you dread the credit card bills that will come in January?  

Even when buying gifts for our kids, the idea of a merry "little" Christmas is altogether a thing of the past.

It doesn't have to be!

In this week's episode, just in time for Christmas, I share with you some thoughts, as well as some ideas, on how you can bring meaning back into your gift giving this year; or next year!

Merry Christmas!

Rank #8: Episode 65 - Dealing With Bullying - Part 2

Podcast cover
Read more

As much as I wish we could, I don't think it is possible to eliminate all the bullies from this world.  This is especially true since the definition of bullying is getting larger all the time!  

I have very little control over the actions of other people.  I can't follow my kids around for their entire lives to protect them from every adversity.  What I can do, is to instill certain values and behaviors in them while they are at home to help them deal with the bad behavior of other people.  

In this second part of our two part series on bullying, we focus less on the bullies, and more on what we as parent can do to protect, and prepare our children to live in a world where people behave badly. I hope it helps.

What can parents do?  Children are now committing suicide, we are told, as a direct result of cyberbullying.  What is the solution?  

There are no easy answers, but we are going to start talking about it right here on this episode.
