Tips for becoming the best dad you can be.

EP018:  The Critical Role of a Father with Larry Hagner

Our kids pick up on everything we do. They notice how we treat ourselves, how we treat each other and how we treat them. If you take care of yourself physically and mentally, they are more than likely to mimic you and understand the importance of self-care. If they observe you being a good spouse, they will appreciate how they should be treated when it’s their turn to be a spouse. So, put away your phone, sit down with your children and ask them well thought-out open-ended questions they can answer with spirit.

This week’s guest, Larry Hagner of the Good Dad Project, guides us through his journey and shares the important lessons he has learned by trying to be the father his kids deserve.
