    #73: Kids That Rock

    We open the show revisiting the b******t "kidnapping" of Karol Sanchez (and how we got caught up in the staged event).

    Has your child experienced trauma? Listen to the scenario KGB puts us up on with his son and his fear of vomiting.  K also comes with some action items he and his wife are looking to try out to help ease their son's anxiety. Speaking of anxiety, DJ EFN and Manny Digital recount some of their biggest moments of anxiety and how they overcame them. 

    The Father Hoods explore Tik Tok for a moment and try to make sense of all the fanfare amongst teens and tweens.

    #72: Father Hoods (The Podcast)

    #72: Father Hoods (The Podcast)

    On today's episode we discuss when we'd consider having the talk with our young boys about women's menstrual cycles. Then the Father Hoods reminisce about when they became aware of girls around them getting theirs.

    Are you the parent that always explains away your kids' bad experiences, instead of just listening? On this episode KGB tells about his recent experience with his son along the same lines.

    Ever blow up on your parents? We touch on how we believe our kids will blow up on us over our parenting styles when they're adults. We also talk about how our parental journeys and personal growth have paved the way for greater understanding/sympathy for our parents.

    #70: Naps, Avoid Tantrum Attacks (w/Paul Wall)

    #70: Naps, Avoid Tantrum Attacks (w/Paul Wall)

    The Father Hoods start the show discussing their NYE routines after having kids. How critical are naps for your kids? How serious do you take noise when naps are in session in your house? DJ EFN talks through some of his experiences on the topic. Then Manny Digital admits he sometimes disciplines his children out of embarrassment. The rest of the Father Hoods express their thoughts on that.

    We then welcome in The People's Champ, Houston's own, rapper/actor Paul Wall to the program. He checks in and shares how he and his wife go about raising their 2 kids. We also get into Paul's personal upbringing, a crazy story surrounding his heroine addicted biological father and some of the unfortunate experiences he and his mother had to go through.

    As we get ready to bring in the new year, the Father Hoods share some more fatherhood moments on this last episode of 2019!

    By now you probably heard about the Bronx teenager (Karol Sanchez) who was "taken" from her mom while walking down the street. The guys discuss what took place and kick off a convo about how they'd approach a similar scenario.

    Brushing teeth? When was it you were able to get your little ones to make it happen? The Father Hoods discuss as DJ EFN is working with his daughter to figure it out. They also give some strong hygiene suggestions to help keep adult stank breath in check!

    Daycare can be tough... the boys dive into the recent episode Manny Digital experienced with his pre-schooler.

    Finally, DJ EFN talks about hearing his upcoming child's heartbeat for the first time and all that is transpiring in his world as he and his lady await baby #2.

Day1Onee ,

Dope!!

Ohh btw i was watching a video called “10years of maschine: 9th wonder” and hes rockin a father hoods T shirt that i need! Hopefully its on your website soon!!

tiojay ,

Dope concept and execution.

Love the concept of a fatherhood related podcast with a hip hop perspective. Guys around our age are the first generation of dads raising our kids since hip hop culture was born and it’s good to hear about fatherhood from that likeminded perspective.

KarinaRain ,

A Great Perspective

Seems like there are plenty of motherhood podcasts out there, so being able to hear the other side is really special. Keep up the great work guys. The show is great with you 3, but your guests so far have been top notch! Looking forward to many more episodes.
