    Beyond Reaction: Jon Fogel's Holistic Approach to Parenting

    Beyond Reaction: Jon Fogel's Holistic Approach to Parenting

    Jon Fogel is a dad, pastor, and advocate for evidence-based, non-trauma-inducing parenting methods. He is known under the moniker "WholeParent" on Social Media, where he has over 1 Million followers across multiple platforms. As WholeParent, Jon offers a unique perspective on parenting grounded in evidence-based research in areas of child development, adolescent psychology, and basic neuroscience, synthesizing strategies from the worlds of cognitive-behavioral therapy, general counseling, and even contemplative meditation to help parents manage problematic behaviors and grow deeper in their relationship with their children, their partner, and themselves.
    Jon Fogel shares his personal journey and the pivotal moments that shaped his approach to fatherhood. From growing up in a high school known for its comedic alumni to the loss of his father and the birth of his son, he discusses how these experiences led him to a deeper understanding of how our brains react to stress and the importance of developing new neural pathways for better parenting responses.
    He also explains the concept of neural pathways and how our childhood experiences shape our default reactions as parents. He then offers practical advice on how to ground ourselves in moments of high stress with our children, emphasizing techniques like deep breathing, grounding exercises, and the importance of not feeding the emotional fire.

Angie TB ,

Dad Edge is great for moms, too!

I appreciate the way Larry advocates for fathers to be their strongest, happiest and best selves so they can guide their families to do the same. As a mom, I find his guests and topics applicable to my role in the family, as well.

Must Listen for Dad's

Hey, being a Dad is not easy. In fact, if you are being thoughtful and wanting to do it right, it can feel downright impossible. Add in the masculine need to be a lone wolf and do it yourself, and fatherhood is a recipe for frustration. This podcast will help you feel heard without ever saying a word, because dads just like us are going through the same struggles. That alone is worth the listen, but the tools to make yourself a better father and husband are invaluable. There are plenty of dad podcasts out there that are…I’ll be kind and say less than useful. This one is head and shoulders above the rest. Do yourself a favor and give it a listen! Your kids will thank you.

Life changing!!!!

After an eye opening talk I had with my 19yr old daughter, she opened my eyes to a lot of mistakes I have made as a father, I found this podcast. I listen to religiously. Although I can’t currently afford to become a member of the dad edge alliance. This show is changing my life on a day basis. THANKS Larry!!
