In this episode, we delve deep into the importance of parental role models and their impact on our children’s development.

Drew Soleyn and Ed Gough Jr.  discuss the significance of being a role model for our children. They share personal stories, reflections, and insights on how our own experiences with our fathers, or the absence of a positive role model, can shape our approach to parenting.

The hosts touch on the importance of finding positive role models in our lives, whether they are biological fathers, mentors, or even inspirational figures we encounter briefly. They explore the concept that role models can show both positive and negative behaviors, and how we can learn from these experiences to become the best parents we can be.

The episode also highlights the significance of the early years (0-6 years) in setting the foundation for our children’s development. By having healthy, positive, and genuine role models, we can provide the influence and guidance our children need during these crucial years.

We understand that being a dad without a positive role model can be challenging, and it can lead to self-doubt, shame, and regret. That’s why we’re here. Our mission at Dad Central is to support you on your dad journey, helping you avoid pitfalls and giving you the tools necessary to become the best role model for your children.
