    68 Brett Rustand on the family as a team and forming lasting memories

    68 Brett Rustand on the family as a team and forming lasting memories

    “We have a critical role as parents to create memories for children, and put them in situations and environments where they’re creating memorable experiences.” Brett Rustand on DADicated

    Brett Rustand is a 45-year-old military veteran and father of five who lives in Tuscon, Arizona. He and his wife both come from large families and have put a lot of effort into melding their individual experiences into their own unified family culture.

    Brett’s military career completely changed direction upon the birth of his first son in Korea. He decided that, from that moment on, he would dedicate every day of his life to raising his children, and currently works in an industry helping veterans to get jobs.

    In this session, we discuss working as a team within your family and our role as parents in deliberately creating situations that will form lasting memories for our children. He draws insightful parallels between functioning as a military unit and as a family and emphasizes the importance of showing vulnerability and giving children space to reconcile their own emotions.

    The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad were:

    - When children see themselves as part of a team with their own responsibilities, it helps them formulate their own identity and feel comfortable within their individual roles as part of a coordinated family unit.

    - Constant communication routines are essential in maintaining strong and functional relationships both between spouses and as a family.

    - It’s so easy to forget to take a step back and enjoy how wonderful an experience it is to help a little person develop and become a full-fledged human being. Realizing this and taking the time to do so is essential for our own perspective and parenting experience.

    Thanks for listening, I hope you’ll enjoy this session!

    67 Ben Richter on navigating the complexities of a blended family

    67 Ben Richter on navigating the complexities of a blended family

    “The best advice I can give myself as a dad is to believe in your impossibles.” Ben Richter on DADicated

    Ben Richter is an amazing man, dad and entrepreneur. He is a father of seven from two marriages who has learned to navigate the complexities of blending different family cultures with multiple children of different ages.

    Ben has built one of the premier airport logistics companies and has managed to develop effective habits for balancing his work and family life. He emphasizes the importance of being fully present for your children by minimizing phone and work time when you’re together.

    In this session, we discuss various valuable principles of fatherhood. Ben shares how he implemented “checkmark” systems from a relatively young age to teach children to consciously reflect on their behavior in a tangible and quantifiable way.

    He explains how building positive communicative habits into our own and in our children’s everyday lives yield extraordinary results - and that difficulties are inevitable, but learning how to respond to them is what really counts.

    Ben is truly inspirational in terms of his outlook on life and what he has achieved as a father and businessman and I thoroughly enjoyed our session together!

    The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad were:

    - Teaching children to exercise gratitude is a powerful way to influence their ability to respond to and to evaluate their daily lives.

    - Focusing on incremental improvement on your performance as a parent is hugely rewarding, rather than focusing on missteps or regretting mistakes. Immediately focus on being the best version of yourself as soon as you walk in the door to be with your children.

    - Daily and weekly recaps with a quantifiable checkmark system can engrain lasting positive behaviors in children.

    I was on the fence about checkmarks for a long time but have to say that Ben’s perspectives made a lot of sense to me and have implemented a few of his ideas at home. So far this works really well.

    If you find these concepts interesting I recommend you read “The Entitlement Trap: How to Rescue Your Child with a New Family System of Choosing, Earning, and Ownership” by Linda Eyre and Richard Eyre. It goes well together with this podcast and the concepts described are complementary and valuable.

    Thanks for listening, I hope you’ll enjoy this session!

    66 Darryl Woods Snr and Darryl Woods Jnr on forgiveness and building a relationship despite extraordinary circumstances

    66 Darryl Woods Snr and Darryl Woods Jnr on forgiveness and building a relationship despite extraordinary circumstances

    “Growing up, people always asked where’s my dad, I would say in prison. But I always knew that that wasn’t the complete story. I wish I could say more to that when they asked me that, because they say your dad’s in prison people make assumptions. Yes, he was in prison, but he played a major part in my life.” - Darryl Woods Jnr on DADicated

    Darryl Woods Sr. is 49 years old. He spent his 28 years and 11 months as a dad in prison. His son, Darryl Woods Jr., was born one year before his father was incarcerated. Their unique story and relationship they have today despite their difficult situation is nothing but amazing and inspirational.

    Darryl Sr. grew up in one of the roughest parts of Detroit and was flung into a life of drugs and crime from a very early age. He was incarcerated at 18 years of age and sentenced to life without the possibility of parole. He refused to succumb to a victim mentality and went above and beyond to be a present and a positive role model in his son’s life.

    In this session, we discuss overcoming the difficulties of being a father figure from within prison, turning a hopeless situation into something positive for yourself and others, Darryl shares his experiences on the power of mental persistence and faith in overcoming seemingly insurmountable obstacles.

    I am absolutely amazed at both their strength and perseverance, and the wonderful relationship they have built as father and son.

    The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad were:

    - Even under the most impossible circumstances, mental strength and a positive approach can prevail and yield astounding results in parenting.

    - We can choose victimhood or the opposite for ourselves.

    - Being there for your children takes many forms and this might not always just be physical.

    65 Tom Cullen on overcoming devastation and adapting to single parenting

    65 Tom Cullen on overcoming devastation and adapting to single parenting

    “The best advice I can give myself as a dad is that love is the baseline. The kids will always have my love. They need to know that. They need to feel that. I can be upset, sad, embarrassed, furious, all those things. But there will always be that base love. Of course I’ll always love them no matter what. But the key is that they know and feel that, always.” Tom Cullen on DADicated

    Tom Cullen is a single dad and entrepreneur who lives with his two daughters who are six and eight in a small, rural town in New York.

    Tom shares an episode where he had to literally pack up and leave the family home with his two kids within a couple of hours. He has never returned to that home, became a single father and dramatically shifted his approach to both his business and parenting thereafter.

    We spoke together about how to establish family values, how to run family retreats and family meetings, the importance of constant re-evaluation of our own approach to parenting, goal setting for kids and how to show emotion to our children whilst shielding them from the unnecessary baggage we might be experiencing as adults.

    The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad were:

    - It’s very possible to turn devastation into empowerment and strength by conscious acts.

    - Teaching my kids how a new toy works is an incredible opportunity to connect, teach and bond.

    - Being a good dad is cool. Make it positive and engaging.

    - Teach goal setting in a playful way early on.

    64 Dave Galbenski on Learning While Teaching

    64 Dave Galbenski on Learning While Teaching

    “The best advice I can give myself as a dad is being a dad is a journey, not a destination. It’s about progress, not perfection. Be present, and when present, be present." Dave Galbenski on DADicated.com

    Dave Galbenski is an amazing entrepreneur and thought leader in the field of law from Michigan. He is happily married and has one daughter who is just about to graduate from college.

    Dave has won numerous awards for his business endeavors, he served as the chairman of the Entrepreneur’s Organization and founded the EO Leadership academy. He himself has learned a lot about the value of education and hard work from his father, who was the first in his family to graduate from college and has played a huge role in Dave’s life.

    In this session, Dave shares his views on how we are both teaching and learning throughout our parenting journeys and that we can never do everything perfect but we can always try to do our best. Dave emphasizes the importance of creating moments in our children’s lives and acting with intention, but also just being there for them when they need us most.

    The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad were:

    - Moments Matter. Moments are the molecules of our lives and our lives are merely a cumulative outcome of many moments.

    - Being a parent must be my number one priority. Figuring out how to make everything else fall into place comes second.

    - When you do your best you don’t have to be perfect.

    - Turn technology off wherever you can.

    “It’s our job to do this, this is what we’re here to do. And we won’t know anything, we won’t know everything, we’re gonna do some things that are gonna be imperfect, but we’re gonna give it our best and we’re gonna be intentional about it and we’ll keep learning along the way.”

    63 Dinis Prazeres on Leadership, Mindfulness & Teamwork

    Dinis Prazeres on DADicated.com: “The best advice I can give myself as a dad is to be kind to yourself and be mindful of what you focus on because what you focus on grows.”

    Dinis Prazeres is a father of two sons, 6 and 10. He met his wife, who is from Poland, while studying in France, and they currently live together in Canada.

    Dinis shares his journey of taking over the reins from his own father in the family business and more recently shifting more towards full-time life and mindfulness coaching.

    In the session we discuss his own upbringing, being a role model for our children, parenting by impact and instilling teamwork and Dinis explains his leadership principles and why being conscious of what we choose to focus on and assuming positive intent are such a powerful tools in life. 

    The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad were:

    - When you’re grounded and happy you’re in the best possible capacity to be a parent, leader or friend. 

    - So much of parenting is about self-management. 

    - Emphasize the strengths and abilities of my children to help them focus on what they’re good at.

    - What you focus on grows so focus on those golden opportunities of happiness.

I have been listening to these for sometime. These podcasts are very inspirational and often quite humbling.

I find there is always a piece of advice or an idea from each podcast that I can implement into the way I raise my daughters and interact with them as a Dad.
