The Power of Fathers

"Have a power like no other fathers have enormous power in the lives of their kids. And that's what i really wanna talk to you about. Today i'm going to talk about three realities of fathers and you know it's interesting because some of you may be thinking we'll to talk about dads one time. When i was giving a lecture a man stood up and said what makes you think that you are an expert on men or fathers. And i said sir i'm not i said i'm not a man. I'm not a father. And i'm really not an experts on father's but here's what i do know. I do know kids. And i know what kids want from their fathers and need from their fathers and how they see their father so my role as a pediatrician is to help you. Dads take a look at yourself through. Your kids is whether you have a son or a daughter because i believe if you could just see who you are them from their perspective for thirty seconds or a minute your life had never be the same. I wrote a book called hero being the strong father. Your children need and you can't believe how many dads didn't like the title. They came to me and said. I'm not i'm not a hero. I don't play nba basketball. I don't play in the nfl. i haven't made a lot of money. I don't even have a great relationship with my kid. I said that's not the point. That's not what the title hero means in. Your kids is your hero and dad's like well i don't i still don't know or they react very strongly. No i'm not. No i'm not. I can't be my kids hero. Well then i would ask as why. Are you reacting so strongly. Chances are you're acting very strongly because you wanted that in your debt and you didn't have it so you're very angry at the whole idea of fatherhood but you're kid isn't so you need to look at yourself from perspective of your kid no matter where you are or what your relationship is like whether you've never met your kid by the you're in jail whether you're a ceo of a fortune five hundred company and you never see your kid. You need to know this. You are your child's hero because your child wants you to

The Importance of Quieting Our Kids' World

"Onto my points to ponder one integrate quiet into your world you know we including our kids live with stimulation overload visual emotional mental and psychological and many of our kids live with physical overload as well. The result of that is that our bodies are in constant fight or flight mode and this is terribly stressful on us and eventually we can't take it anymore in our bodies begin to shut down as well as our minds. This happens with our kids as well. None of us was made to live this way. It causes depression anxiety and hurts our relationships with our loved ones and friends. And that's why it's so important that we intentionally work on integrating quiet into our days to help your kids. Slow down you know. Slowing down isn't in most kids nature's and to tell you the truth. It's hard for us as parents to help our kids slowdown to because we like it. When they're busy kids want to do exactly what their friends are doing. They wanna compete. They're constantly in a drive to keep up and do better than their friends around him. This is subconscious but again it's really bad for them emotionally and physically often we parent see our kids behavior. We encourage it. We want our kids to be better than others as well and one way to help our kids pull back to allow them one extra curricular activity after school. Yes i said one. This shock some parents but remember this kids need more time with you. For emotional health than they do playing soccer dancing ballet et cetera et cetera.

What is ADHD?

"Adhd is of course divided into two parts. There's the attention deficit hyperactivity disorder attention deficit in my experiences more frequent girls. Now i don't know if the literature supports that but i would imagine it. Was these the young girls who can't focus on their work. They can't concentrate. They're not necessarily hyperactive. Hyperactivity with attention issues on the other hand. I see more commonly in boys but adhd is a common neurobiological condition. And as i said it's characterized by developmentally inappropriate levels of being distracted being. Hyperactive being impulsive. It can occur at home at school in social settings and usually in all of the settings in kids have really pretty severe. Adhd i wanted to say right at the outset. One of the most brilliant adolescent and adult psychiatrist. That i know is dr sandra wetstein. He was on my podcast Earlier and he did a podcast on anxiety and kids. Which is fabulous. And you need to listen to it. But he's responsible for most of the information that i'm gonna talk about today in our adhd. So i wanted to give full credit to him. Because he's taught me so much over the years about kids and adolescent psychiatry. So adhd again. It's characterized by a developmentally inappropriate levels of all of these different things. Distractibility and impulsive hyperactivity. It's so forth. If you look at brain scans of children and adults with adhd you can actually see a difference between normal brain. Scans and adhd brain.

Can teaching your children sign language can help language learning?

"I'm surprised that attachment experts and people that are really You know enthusiastic. I won't say into but you know attachment. I'm they wouldn't have brought this up and said wait a minute. Debate one of the best ways that we can increase attachment in up for kids and their parents would be to teach them to sign. Then the other thing is as far as learning other languages in the future me say your child wants to learn spanish in fourth grade or french or latin. Like i did. It's gotta be so much easier for them because they know how to work different parts of their brain time. They'll both of my kids. I haven't even mentioned this to you. That's what i'm saying. We're on the same wavelength. Both of my kids are well. I i'm trying to get them trilingual and so sign is they know the least amount of words but they are a hundred percent bilingual english and spanish. You could talk to them all day in spanish and not say one and their three or two and three you can letters goalie bonian lebedeva or just as i was getting london from the park. I was talking to her in spanish in saint northstar stormy indo. Why are you not sleeping right now. Let's go given the call sign and schilling george inner mixes. She will one hundred percent. She'll say grass on Oh my gosh. She said the other day she said Coma safety say like she was asking me. How do you say Gosh she say she said komo's ad say word in spanish amit was wild and then she asked the sentence in spanish so she was just wondering we weren't even speaking in spanish. Yup is she is she was on yet. But i promise you sign. Language is the reason that she has blown through her milestones. At one year she was she could do such a nerd journaling every month of other things or whatever so they can read back on it. I actually made them a g mail account and i like email them emails so that one day they can read stuff that i like sent to them on. That's my mom again. Jama color jama grant jan and grandma jam telling me to do that so we did that but say gosh. Where was i going with that and we were talking about. You want trilingual hocken about the ease that you Create for your kids in learning third and fourth language. If at early age they've learned to yes and i. It's it's it's very true. Yeah i am telling you. Oh we asked that was her. It was at her pediatrician appointment for her one year. They're like you know. Kimchi say three to five words. And i might jan which language and they were like what she knows. English sign in spanish. And i'm like teller. London like lima one year old. My one year old was. I'm like come on. You know it's hard because you know kids if they're not always going to do what you want especially that kind of clam up at the doctor's office but she was like we're not leaving here until she says a word all these languages than being on like london you know. Show us milk show as eater. Whatever she could say a couple words in spanish Probably like five six in spanish probably ten in english as a one year old. Now that's different. I was wild pick. I mean my pediatrician. Just couldn't believe her eyes but my son wasn't like that so it's not like they had the same upbringing in the same house. That totally proves every kid is different. Like my son could not do that. Yeah i actually am not. That's not unusual that you know girls. Language progresses more quickly than it has nothing to do with intelligence.

"You. Don't you said you love what you do i. I've always loved being an entrepreneur. And that's what i do. And i'm really added but for a number of years i had this really awful feeling inside because i knew that i was put on this earth to do more than just do good work. I was put on this earth to do more than nor and quite frankly. I wasn't delivering like i was falling short. You know i would. I would leave a world of confidence in clarity and i would go home to a world of chaos and i justified it on the provider or i i have to work to be able to be the husband or father but i knew that was a lie like i do. I was just totally lying. Is i knew that i could win at home like i was winning at work or i should win home like i wasn't. I was winning at work and losing home. And that wasn't okay. So i love what i do but i love my family even more and actually in it happens that one day i decided what if i family. What if what. If the most valuable business i will ever own ever operate. Ever start ever been be a part of was the one. I was going home to not the one i went to that and that actually when i started becoming the husband and father that i was put on this earth to be and i love your approach you know. It looks like as re reading the book that you had kind of an epiphany you know you drove home. You'd had a successful day and you're sitting at the end of your driveway on. I don't want to go home. Because i i don't wanna lose this. You know this wonderful feeling of success and then walking into that chaos and so i just loved exit kind of resonate with that in your book mentor to millions. You really talk about how you can use the business principles. Make his successful with your family. And i i got it and i thought ooh that doesn't quite make sense but early on in the book you talk about getting the right mindset and you talk about the importance of failures right up front. What's the right mindset. That business people need and that parents need you know so So the book starts out with one of the most our editors said it was the most compelling first line that she has read in a decade. And it's halfway up my driveway. I realized i didn't want to go home. And you don't know how many people i've met that. Say that's me like i've had that. Experience of coming oregon saying adjust. Need another minute before i face. The chaos confusion and that day that driveway moment and coinate a driveway moment changed everything in my life it changed. The trajectory of my life is a husband my life as a father. My children's lives. My children are now grown. I only have one left at home out of six and so we can look back at that driveway. Moment say it changed the trajectory of every single person in my family and you know it changed me as an entrepreneur. I mean even in business. It changed because that day. I decided my family from that day forward was going to get my best and my first not my last in my least that i was going to practice in business so that i can perfect it at

Help! My Wife and I Disagree on Co-Sleeping

"Doctor meg. My wife. And i have four kids recently. We've had a lotta disagreements about how to parent and it's driving us apart. My wife allows our four year old to sleep in our bed. And i moved to another room. It just feels like we're not compatible anymore. What should i do. Well i want to tell you. K b just gonna use your initials instead of your name. Your wife needs to get your four year old out of the bed and you need to be back in your bedroom. This is really inappropriate and very unhealthy for your marriage. Not only that. It's bad for your child sending your child a terrible message. I feel that you guys need to come together on some big parenting issues which you know and tackle these long before you consider separating or getting divorced. I know you're considering divorce. But i think this is at this point. This is much more harmful for your kids. Here's what i would do. I would tell your wife that. There's some parenting things that she's good at and that you want to be sure to support as your kids get older then i would ask you to write down four five parenting issues. That she feels are most important to her to Succeed at as your kids grow older. Then tell her you will support these but that you need her to support your four or five most important parenting issues. In other words you have to negotiate with her. And i talk about this a lot. But it's very important for parents to do or not the same page with discipline co-parenting And many other issues. I really encourage you to find a marriage. Counselor as well to work through your issues and honestly. I'm not so sure that these much parenting issues as either personality ones or merita ones.

The Good Dad Project With Larry Hagner

"I really want our listeners to have a sense of who you are and where you come came from in order to start to go dad project may one day i woke up and i was like i suddenly know everything. There's no about fatherhood cher with. That's obviously not true whatsoever. My journey into this whole dad's space really really started when i was a kid. My mom my childhood was was pretty complex. My mom was married three times. My mom did the best. She could with what she had but she was. She was married three times every guy that she married guy that she dated was kind of the same guy you know kinda like there's usually some element of toxicity drugs alcohol and physical mental abuse. So i always say that. I spent half my childhood without a father. Figure the other half with some sort of toxicity going on. But what i can tell you just really quick story. Is mom biological father. Remarried in nineteen seventy-one. They had me and seventy five. They got divorced really quickly about. I was about nine months old. He completely split no recollection of whatsoever. When i was four my mom remarried and at that point my life. That's how i thought moms found dads they just go out and find ads and so this gentleman came into our life. They were married for six years. They got divorced. It was it was a really horrible bitter end. They got divorced. I have not seen him since fast. Forward two years later. I ran my biological father by mistake. I wasn't expecting it. We had a relationship for a handful of months. Was this twelve. Yeah so i was. I think i was in seventh grade at the time. We had a relationship for a handful of months. He's remarried had a two year old son. Another one on the way and then it just got to the point. I think for him at that. Point is life where it was too much and unfortunately that relationship ended and it didn't end well and i completely went in a direction of i emotionally over eight. I failed the eighth grade. A lot of really crazy things can happen. My mom remarried a few more a couple more times and then fast forward graduated from college was in my first profession. I'm sitting in the coffee shop at a meeting When i was thirty when you walk in to get their morning coffee my father my biological father who i hadn't seen since i was twelve and i won't go into how we connected but we did connect and here we are fifteen years later and we do have a relationship. I spend time with him actually pretty often two younger half brothers. He's still married to the same woman but the good that project data is really started. Because i was struggling terribly had at the time for boys now the time i had to had a four year old and a six year old. Didn't know what. I was doing with really frustrated. Short on patience short temper The good nap project. Unfortunately there's there's a part of me that's very shame to admit this but it really came on a on a dark night in a dark moment. Where my son who's twelve. Now he was four. He stepped out of line as any four year old. Would i don't blame him. It was my fault. I spanked me. Hit the ground. And i looked at him and i went to help him up and The look on his face was i felt like i was staring myself and i knew in that moment i was like i don't know what i'm doing but i'm gonna find out how to do this better and i'm tired of living with no direction with patients. Having a hot temper all my life is only my career. And it's only my career. Because i don't know how i don't know how to be a good husband. I don't know how to be a good father. And i just surrendered. I'm just gonna. I'm gonna surrender my ego here and i'm just gonna learn and it was at that point in two thousand thirteen. I started good. That project dot com. It was a blog. I don't know how many people know this. But get that project actually me. I was this project. And then it's evolved in what it is today which we've been podcasting now for five years you've been one of our guests We've have over six hundred episodes and we have four hundred and fifty men that you live with us in our mastermind as a huge community and a movement and it all came out of absolute total struggle and dark places to be totally honest with you.

"Throw a monkey wrench in an already tough situation. Now, you've got dad who's the Bio Dad living in another home and you've got step dad and mom living a home. MOM AND DAD scenario I, see a lot mom and step dad believe that. Kids. Should have curfews and You know boyfriends and girlfriends don't live in the home and but then the kids go over to bio DADS and they don't have to go to bed till one in the morning and dad's got a live in girlfriend. And a mom and Stepdad don't believe in that. Help those tears get on the same page or can they? Okay. So let's let's just acknowledge that. Death or divorce followed by a marriage that forms a blended family, means you have less parental power as one single parent than if you were in a unified family situation. There's no way we can ever recover what has been lost in that sense. What we can do is find as many ways as possible to cooperate between households to try to come to similar similar expectations for the children. But somebody right now is laughing their head off because they just heard that they said you have no idea what to deal within the other. And there's no way that's ever GonNa Happen I. Get it, right? Yeah, and in in those situations. Okay. You tried you manage your home. You teach. You talk you build character. You have morals and values that you're trying to instill in your children. You live up to those and you manage your home knowing full well that when they go home, they're gonNA stay up late tonight, get enough sleep. They're not GONNA get the math homework done and it is going to ripple conflict and some stress back into your life it comes with the territory. But you just manage your home as best. You can always leaving open. The possibility that God may do another miracle in that other parents life, and someday they may come to see the light and WanNa. Know what time should bedtime be. Your calls are you print? But. Honestly, it is a stressful situation when that happens I I've often compared. You know the goal of co-parenting. is trying to cooperate regarding the other home as best you can. Because you WANNA, make it easy for children to move between homes. They're not caught in the middle of some war that's going on between the adults if if you're Canada and the other homes the US. Hey, it's all good. Yeah Yeah. We we do have a different money system. Government different health insurance right. But we love each other. We like each other we get along. You can cross the border pretty easily. It's all good. But if the other home is North Korea. And you're the US. You got a whole lot of politicking going on a whole lot of agendas being worked. It is far more difficult for the children to actually show up in either of those places and feel loved and feel safe and not feel like they've got a report on the other country, and it is what it is like you do what you can, what's within your power. Love will to manage well to be consistent to your rules and guidelines. What happens when Suzy's thirteen mom and Stepdad have a fairly strict home? She's not too keen on step dad and says, I'm going to go live at Dad's because he's a lot nicer. He doesn't have rules. You. Do you let her go or? Let's play that out. Yeah. If I'm mom in that situation. The first thing I want to do is dial back my panic. That? Yeah. Yeah. Everything inside you just went. No, that can't happen. I don't want you to go. Why would you WANNA leave. That makes me feel. So Oracle and you turn all that down and you don't let that get the best take a deep breath and you go so tell me What is it that you're needing? Once what's happening? That's making you feel like you need to do that and you go right back to the child and you try to listen and hear and understand, and maybe it's just because Dan is cool video games. It might just be that. But. Maybe it could be that deeply doesn't feel safer. Loved for whatever reason. And you do have something that you really need to address like. So you gotTa Listen I. I will say this I've written article about parenting, a step parenting in parenting teenagers I do think for some children, there is this natural longing to want to spend a little time with their other biological parent, that is a legitimate need. Do think that is something that if you talk and listen and explorer in its, there's nothing manipulative going on here. This is not a challenge is trying to get the best to you or put went over on anybody. They just have an authentic need to spend more time with dad. Thank, you might have to accommodate for a season. Now, if there's some sort of agenda or manipulation or. One. No. I don't think you just give in to that I. Think you address what's the problem you address what? we want you here. We WanNA keep custody of the way it is. We want to pursue that solicit try to address what's happening so that the need to move to another home goes away

"In the context of compassion and being kind to your kids of this new course has so much information and it's going to be so helpful for somebody different parents. How exactly do you recommend that a parent used this? Because sometimes there's a lot of information, especially younger parents have access to and there's kind of that information overload in which might seem a little intimidating. How do you recommend that? Do parents choose this disciplined with courage and kindness? Great. Question. Roger, you know, parents do feel overwhelmed, but what I did with this courses, I broke it down into six modules and I broke it down into bite sized pieces apparent can go through it in a week. They can go through it in a month. They can take two months to do it, but I did it in a way where parents. Can sit down and say, I have five minutes tonight before I go to bed, I need some nuggets and so they can sit down and they can go through five minutes and go, oh, okay, I can do that. So really I has six modules in Deir and I packed the course with videos. If parents are visual learners and I have some audios in there some one minute clips of, here's what you need to do today. I have some written text because a lot of parents want to read through something. Again, nothing is exhaustively long, but what I try in every few minutes, I think apparent is going to be reading or listening is to give them some nuggets. And then I have a video where I answer onscreen thirty questions the most common questions. Parents asked me. So as I said, it really is designed for parents to just sit down either in five minutes or half an hour, listen and beyond their way, but to walk away from those moments, thinking. Okay. I can try that disciplined with courage and kindness the new course from Dr Meg meeker. It's going to be a big help for you as a parent regardless of where you are in the journey. But a lot of parents Dr beaker will come to, you would say, okay, I don't really know what I'm doing in terms of what my style is and you've identified three different discipline styles. The parents have that. Let's talk about what each one is and find out which one is the one we should be aiming at as opposed to just landing on. This was very helpful for me as a parent because I will confess a hated visiting my kids. I'm just a win. I hated it. I was one of those ones that said, if you don't behave, I'm going to tell dad. My husband and because I just I wanted to be the nice guy and even now, you know, Roger as a as a grandparent. So I have to discipline my grandkids, and that's even harder because I want to be the nice grandma. But you know, in order to honor my kids, I have to continue to discipline the grandkids so that they don't go home and make life difficult for the parents. But there was a wonderful developmental psychologist named Diana bomb rind, and she came up several decades ago with three types of disciplines styles that I think are very helpful for parents to understand and the really on a continuum. There's the authoritarian parent at one end of the spectrum, the militant parents the you do what I say or else. I don't need to explain myself to you. I'm just the data. I'm just the mom listen to me or go to your room. You know, the type of parents that kids who were frayed. Of the cold parent really doesn't walk away from discipline. Having a lot of fun with their heads at the other end of the spectrum is the permissive parent. The parents who says, you know what? You kind of make up the rules as we go on act on your instincts child. Your instincts are gonna lead you in the right place. I don't want to squelch your character. I don't wanna felt your personality, so you take the reins and I'll just follow you. And of course, each end of the spectrum in the extreme ends up with disaster in a child's life because kids, they don't wanna be afraid of their parents. They run from their parents and they also need to respect their parents so they can feel secure, you know, a five, ten fifteen year old child with a parent or says, you know what you don't need curfew. It's okay. If you ride your bike in the street, you'll learn,.

"Now I want you to listen in on the. Interview that Roger Marsh and I did on discipline. Thank you Dr. Meaker Ed. We are so grateful to have this time together to talk about something that's really important to parents of course, and that's discipline. I mean, people might look at your situation though and say, well, you're a pediatrician, so Dr. Meg meeker. Why would be what here information from you about parenting since you've got more for medical approach? Roger. Well, first of all, thank you for asking this question in many more after practicing for thirty years. I've really become a professional listener of kids if you will, and listener parents. So I've seen the struggles that they've had during the years, and I've seen some patterns evolving in parents. And one of the patterns that I've seen are this specific struggles at parents have when it comes to disciplining their kids, parents read about. You know what, what they should do with their kids and how they should do with their kids and when they should discipline their kids. And I found there's a lot of confusion and it's enormous struggle for parents who have kids who you know, they feel just don't listen to them or don't pay any attention. They don't want to obey them. Parents don't know if they should make their kids obey, or if they should let the sort of character the child come out. So I just seen a lot of confusion erupting among parents when it comes to making their kids mind them. It's a big struggle for panel here, the term disciplined. I share a lot of parents think discipline that means punishing your kids, but there's a big different discipline punishment isn't there. I'll absolutely. You know, you like me think of the word discipline and we think of coming down hard on a child or yelling at a child or making the child do something, and you hear the word disciplined. You don't tell me one more thing I need to do with my kids, but my point. In writing discipline with courage and kindness is that when we do it well and it's not that hard to do really well, it it takes time to learn how to do it, but when you do it well, it really lightens your load as a parent. And I also wanted to introduce parents to the idea that discipline can be positive, not necessarily negative. So I really want to shift a parent's perspective on what discipline is and what discipline isn't. That's very important to know. Especially if you think about disciplining with courage and kindness, it's an interesting title doctor, Meg maker, the call this program disciplined with courage and kindness. Talk about why it's important to have both because I'm sure there are some parents who might be a little heavy on one side and maybe light around the other. Oh, absolutely. You know, I think that healthy discipline which is really about teaching your children. It isn't about coming down hard and enforcing rules and being the bad guy, but to. Discipline. Well, takes a lot of courage on parents, part of courage to say, I'm in charge. I'm not gonna make apologies for the rules that I said, and I'm going to have some backbone as a approach, disciplining my child because I need to teach my child in the reason we need to teach our children is that they don't have a natural inclination to do the right thing. They often know what they should do, but they don't have the ability to do it. So that's why it takes parents a lot of courage to do its best in right for their kids. But I also talk about kindness because a lot of parents are kind, but they don't think about discipline is being kind so that you can set rules. And as a matter of fact, kids are really pretty okay with rules. They don't mind parents having rose. What they mind is when parents don't blend the rules with kindness and compassion and sorta. Say, you know here the rules. I expect you to obey them. Now let's go do something fun. So it's really about having that balance between being courageous enough to set some rules to teach your kids to not make apologies, but to do it.

"About driving her off that she goes to wave at you and you're ready to burst into tears her messages this is very upsetting to my mom too so something really bad is going on here in other words of child doesn't feel you're okay with letting her go there and you're okay saying your fine it's time to go in you can do this if she sends his any hesitation from you as you drop her off she is gonna feel totally on safe and you gotta get rid of that then you gotta work on you that's good all right next question for dr meg meeker here on the coleman show comes in from laura she says my four year old had a hit injury almost two years ago this is a pretty big deal yeah the his older brother accidentally pulled the pin held up a trailer gate and the little guy got knocked to the ground this head was pinned to the ground under a heavy trailer gate he sustained a minor skull fracture few hours in the hospital but they've noticed that he was was usually more fearless than his cautious brother but that changed and now he's very cautious doesn't wanna do things unless he's prompted so they're wondering should they look into some type of trauma counseling for him due to this injury great question my my response would be no he's too young what what you wanna do with a child who has ptsd which is what she's driving at here is you want to sort of talk them what you as a parent this mom writing thing is i wanna get impasse if i wanna resolve ptsd he's gonna have to do it on his own timetable so what i would do i would you take charge of helping him not accounts or not a professional because if he's not ready to do that you're gonna waste a lot of time and you're gonna frustrate him so what i would do is watch for signs of fearfulness and when he is feeling fearful you gently coach him through it.
