Bullying – Is it really bad for business?

Play

Bullying is a hot topic and the sad news is that it won’t ever not be. As long as there are sports leagues, a greek system, people who are good at something and others who are bad, there will always be some sort of bullying, and that sucks. But. That doesn’t mean we as Dads can’t do something about. We can teach our kids how to deal with it if presented with a situation where it enters our lives.

As Dads we have to go ahead and take the high road. We have to prepare our kids for the world out there there and considering the way the country has been reacting to the NFL’s Miami Dolphins incident, we still have work to do.

Todd and Kent talk about their own experiences with Bullying/Hazing/Stupidity. How did they handle it? How are others handling it now? There is a High School in Manhattan, NY that is making a difference. There is a Professor in North Carolina who is telling us to all get our Freak Out. There are kids in your own neighborhood who need your help. So do it. Own It. Be the one who makes a difference. Start by listening an sharing this episode and share below what your own experience has been with Bullying.

How to achieve all of your dreams and have fun doing it

How to achieve all of your dreams and have fun doing it

Here we are at the end of 2011 and how many of your personal goals did you reach? Do you even remember what they are? Todd and Kent discussed setting and attaining personal and business goals. There is a reason that everyone in Kent’s company received iPad’s this holiday season. Maybe we should all start reading the book, “predictably irrational”?

There is no reason you can’t start now. These two dads shed some amazing light on how to best set your goals and how to attain them in this current chaotic business world. It’s really not that hard and you can have fun while doing it.

Are you corruptible? Why this Weiner was.

Are you corruptible? Why this Weiner was.

Todd and Kent took this debate head on. It was hard, but they would eventually blow everyone else away with what came out of their mouths.

Are you corruptible? Have you been tempted to stray from your marriage? Why do men do this? How much is enough? Tiger? Arnold? Anthony Weiner?

What does this teach the kids? How does this affect them? Kent and Todd share their own personal reflections of growing up in a “broken home” and  a “perfect home” respectively.

The only way to travel safely this summer

Are you travelling this summer? Gonna pack the kids in the car? Do you have roadside assistance? What about Roadside Assistance that is good for the environment?

Mitch Rofsky is the co-founder and President of Better World Auto Club, America’s only environmentally friendly auto club, with 24/7 nationwide roadside assistance for cars and bicycles.

We did talk some shop, but we also discussed the path that led Mitch to where he is today. Wow!

Does Plastic Surgery help kids?

Does Plastic Surgery help kids?

Kent brought up the topic of Plastic Surgery for young children. How young is too young? Why do parents even allow their kids to consider plastic surgery. Would you? Can it actually be helpful to the children? From there Kent unleashed information about why women’s bodies are formed the way they are. It left Todd speechless. Plus they discussed how they met their wives and what they look for in a woman. How did you find yours? Put a short version up on our Facebook page under Dads Unplugged.

A Dad Blogger’s honest story

A Dad Blogger’s honest story

Cole Gamble did something very few Dads if any have ever done. He owned up on the internet in a blog to spanking his child, when he doesn’t believe in spanking. It was a post that caught my eye and I had to find out what had happened since then. He informed us that his son hadn’t turned into a threat to anyone, and he hadn’t become a non-spanking fanatic. He’s just a Dad who writes about things that come up in his life, but it seems a few of those things are “hot” topics. We discussed spanking, circumcision (he and wife battled over this one), plus is it right to drink in front of your children? Is there a limit to how much one should consume? The responses to his posts made us laugh as they were rather intense. As for Cole, he wasn’t. He was hilarious and honest, a nice combination for another edition of Dads Unplugged.

3 Parenting Principles for Fathers of Daughters

3 Parenting Principles for Fathers of Daughters

Kevin Renner stepped away from a well paying job two years ago, because he woke up one morning dreading to go to work. That was the first day of his new journey, as an author. He has just written his first book, “In Search of Fatherhood:A Mother Lode of Wisdom from the World of Daughterhood”

In this book, Kevin interviewed 50 different women from around the world. Some are mothers, others are not. But they all had some sort of relationship with their Fathers that profoundly impacted their lives. It’s a beautiful book, that all fathers should read to gain a deeper understanding of their daughters.

Near the end of the show, Kevin unveiled his 3 Parenting Principles that he gained from this two year tour that enabled him to connect with Daughters from all over the world.

Dying to be perfect

Dying to be perfect

Kent and Todd planned to talk with Dan Pearce of Single Dad Laughing.com fame, but alas Comcast in Utah had something to say about it. Lines of communication were down all over the place, so all Todd and Kent could do was talk about what Dan has written.
Perfection is a killer and it’s also a beautiful thing. It actually helped Dan come to terms with some issues and as we read his blog post it gave us a great perspective on how Perfection has played an unhealthy role in our lives. Do you think about being perfect? Do you want to be perfect so nobody knows you aren’t? It can be a nasty inner struggle and for some it has been life’s biggest demon.

Spanking, let’s get rid of it everywhere!

Spanking, let’s get rid of it everywhere!

Kent and Todd debated spanking in schools. Did you know that 20 States in the US allow for children to be spanked in schools? Corporal Punishment still exists? You can’t hit a prisoner, but you can hit a child. You can’t hit a Military member, but you can hit a child. You can’t hit a dog, but you can hit a child.

Fashion Designer Marc Ecko is leading the charge to have Corporal Punishment banned in all 50 States.

Have you ever hit your child? What did you do afterwards? If you haven’t, what would you do if someone else did? It’s being allowed in these 20 States: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Wyoming.

If you haven’t listened to the Parenting Unplugged Radio interview with Susie Walton, Dr Jane Nelson or Glenda Montgomery, I suggest you do. It will give you resources and an understanding of how connections can be made with your child without the use of violence.

Kent fires back at TSA, painted toenails and kids who know nothing about money

Whether we are talking about moms painting their kids’ toes pink; how TSA handles everyone or how parents should teach their kids about money, you can be sure of one thing. Kent and Todd are going to have opinions and they let loose on these three.

What would you do if you saw your kid with painted fingernails or toenails?

Are you tired of taxpayer money going toward the inept handlers at airports? TSA is a joke. Hey, Kent said it.

And what did you learn about money as a young child? Kent shares his experience and Todd, well let’s just say he is still a work in progress.
