Being a new father has extreme challenges. The only thing that prepares new fathers is the stigmas that lie ahead. We feel trapped and have a lost voice. The Fearless Fathers Podcast is here to give you that voice. To break the stigma that holds fathers tightly. We are going to talk about the tough stuff. The stuff no one ever wants to tread. We're going to pick the brains of fathers, new and old, and how they became fearless. We're going to challenge your mind and start to see things in a new light. To become fearless, you have to step out of your comfort zone. Your child learns and grows every day, and you are too. Together, we'll embrace the fear.
You’re Not Going to Love your Kids All the Same with Pat Davy
Today on the Fearless Fathers Podcast, Dave-O sits down with the father of 2 and personal trainer, Pat Davy. Pat hails from the land of cheese, (no not France, that would be cool) Wisconsin. Pat hosts a Podcast with his daughter, Alora “Beast Mode Kids” which focuses on bridging the gap of communication between parents and their preteens/teens. BMK began as a way for Pat and Alora to grow closer. But we aren’t talking all BMK today. Pat agreed to sit down with us and talk about how he became Alora’s dad. See, Pat had all intentions of being in the stepdad role, but when Alora was six, he adopted her as his own. We go in-depth with Pat’s thoughts, feelings, and fears as he stepped from being content with being a stepdad to being a loving, true dad.Three things we hope you take away from today’s episode. When stepping into the parent role from the outside, be receptive, and communicate with your spouse. Fear has a way to control us but uses it to grow. Don’t be afraid to fail. No matter if you adopted your child, are a stepparent, or have your natural children, you will never love your kids all the same way.

SLING YOUR BAG, IT’S THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL
Today on the show, we’re talking about you and your little ones' first day of school. It can be an amazing, and difficult time for both parents and kids. This being the first time that you hope and pray everything you taught your kid will help them and putting your trust into a stranger to guide and grow your child. Both Ryan and Dave give their take on it, Ryan getting ready to send his kid off to school within the next year or so, and Dave-O a bit ways away yet. The emotions you feel when your little one just doesn’t want to let go are perfectly normal, and we all feel them one way or another. We use two great pieces in the episode. The first one being a dad’s thoughts as he sends his little girl to school for the first time, and a video of a dad that interviewed his daughter each year about her first day of school, up to her senior year.

The Dad Dilemma - The Stigma of Social Media as A Father
After our week away (Which we'll discuss a bit today), we are back and running today on the podcast. We're talking about the stigma of social media and device use as a father. Recently, Dave and Ryan watched "The Social Dilemma" documentary on Netflix. The doc interviews former top social media execs and how the business model of social media turned humans into digital zombies. It goes in-depth on ad campaigns, fake news, mental health, and psychology that keeps us mindlessly scrolling and looking for attention. That's where this idea for today's episode stemmed from. Highly recommend watching it. It's up to us as fathers to understand and know within ourselves. Our kids are always watching us, learning what we do to form their own habits. We know our screens take us away, and social media keeps us sucked in, but feel like we just can't fully break away. Keep listening today, and take these takeaways. 1. Having just will power to break away may not be enough. Realize yourself and take small micro-steps.2. Internet Junk Food is delicious and we want more, but it's not the best thing for you. 3. Learn to not see yourself as the smartest person in the room. Be willing to hear someone else's beliefs.
