Vulnerability, Parenting, and Letting Go of Control—Inside A Guy’s Perspective With Our Friends From Dadville

Episode Notes

Research shows that many men are struggling and not sure how to get support. So I asked our friends from the Dadville podcast to come on and talk about how to encourage the guys in your life!

What a joy to host this insightful and fun duo! Jon McLaughlin and Dave Barnes are best known for their careers as musicians and song writers, but on their off-time, they encourage and inspire us on their popular parenting podcast, Dadville. You'll find so much wisdom in this conversation, including:

1. How to find joy in the dream vs. the destination

2. Guys and vulnerability

3. The true goal of parenting

4. Why we all have to face our own blind spots

5. A beautiful picture of letting go of control with our kids
