Prepping to be a father ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I hope to become a father next year so I thought I'd switch up some of my podcast listening and gave this a shot. I've found the marriage and relationship related episodes very helpful. Larry's recent solo episodes are well-worth listening to. I appreciate that it's not interrupted with A LOT of mid-roll ads!

hmm, maybe this episode was a poor choice to start with.... I'm a wife and picked this episode to try to understand the challenges men have with connecting with their wives. seemed like a lot of fluff (and some dead air)... just a long advert for the club. not impressed.

Another great episode! I have teens boys and have been thinking of ways to bring practical math or business situations to them. Abeka Comsumer Math was one avenue to assist with financial knowledge for the real world.

The Dad Edge Podcast is an amazing podcast. Each week Larry brings a variety of content, from big names to a Q&A to interviews with fathers like you had me who are doing the work to change their lives. For me, this podcast combined with the online community that Larry has established has been a huge catalyst for my growth as a man, husband, and father. If you're looking to be better in those areas, Larry's podcast is a great place to start.

Question. In this episode, Dr. Corey mentions "leading" your spouse and family. He uses an example, something like, When she asks 'Where do you want to go for dinner?'...HAVE AN ANSWER. My question is...When you give an answer and lead, why is there a discussion? Example...No, not Italian! I'm not in the mood for Italian. What's the point of leading and making a decision if its constantly up for debate? What am I missing?
