    The Joy Of Tantrums

    The Joy Of Tantrums

    Ready or not, here they come - TANTRUMS! Yes, that thing you've witnessed so many times in your carefree, single and early marriage days... it's going to happen to you! Kids are born pros at tantrums and how long and how severe they last partially depend on how you react to them. You've officially become a parent when you've endured the craziness that is the public, over-the-top, ear-piercing tantrum. We take this episode to address what you can do to not stop, but at least curb, your kid's tantrums.

    Date Nights: Before and After Becoming Parents

    Date Nights: Before and After Becoming Parents

    Making time for "date nights" with your significant other isn't always as easy as it should be. It's easy for months (or longer) to go by without taking the time to focus on yourselves instead of your kid(s). In this episode we discuss the importance of making date nights a priority and taking advantage of the precious time you have left before your first baby arrives - and if you're already a parent, how to make it happen with there's so much going on in your life.

Where was this show when I was going from dude to dad???

I’ve gone from dude to dad (my kids are in the 20s now) and man do I wish I had a podcast like this when I was going from dude to dad. Heck, I wish there were any podcasts back then, but especially this one. The things these guys discuss hit the nail on the head for one greying dad who was once a dude. Subscribe!
