Jun 3, 2022

My guest is the author of the new book "I Never Met My Father" Eugene Schneeberg.

BIO:

I Never Met My Father is a powerful true story of brokenness, forgiveness, healing, restoration, and hope. 

 

My new book is filled with practical advice for fathers, mothers, and children. 

 

If you're one of the millions of men and women who grew up with a rocky relationship or no relationship with your father, then this book is for you.

 

In My new book, I share my RAW AND HONEST JOURNEY GROWING UP IN POVERTY, my battles with insecuritymental illness, and depression, 

 

My new book will teach you ways to break generational cycles of fatherlessness.

 

And put you on a path toward forgiveness, healing, and wholeness.  

 

For the first time ever, I share lessons learned from over 30 years of searching for my father.

 

Each chapter has action steps and a fatherhood challenge to encourage you.

 

My journey from the poor house to the White House proves that there is hope for fatherless sons and daughters.

 

If you are a father, a mother, or one of the millions of people like me who grew up without your father, this is a must-read for you.

How To Be A Unicorn 

 

Elise Buie, Esq. is a Seattle-based family and divorce lawyer and founder of the Elise Buie Family Law Group. A survivor of Hurricane Katrina, her divorce, and many dish-filled sinks piled high after lively family dinners with her husband, Doug, and their blended family of six (six!) teens and 20-somethings, Elise knows firsthand what it means to juggle work and parenting, finding balance in between, even if it means a lot of late nights. When she’s not advocating for her clients, the best interests of their children, and civility in divorce, you can find her sailing on Puget Sound.

PRE-ORDER: My Dad's Advice At 5:04 AM
https://blendingthefamily.com/products/

 

My guest is the Co-Founder of Fathering Together, Brian Anderson.

He has a new book titled "Fathering Together."

Bio
Brian Anderson is a husband and father to two spirited daughters that keep me inspired and exhausted every day. Prior to co-founding Fathering Together, Brian worked as a social worker, community organizer, university chaplain, and interfaith leadership development consultant. As the Co-Founder and Executive Director of Fathering Together, Brian brings those experiences to empower fathers to be agents for positive change. When not working, Brian serves as an amateur chef for his family and works on his forthcoming book: Fathering Together which provides a roadmap for fathers using servant leadership as a guide.

But here's an excerpt:
 

The Book

Last year, my daughter told me she didn't like me anymore. It is something no parent wants to hear.

In that moment, I knew nothing I could say would fix it. I'd broken her trust, and it would take time for me to rebuild and strengthen our bond. In Fathering Together, this story from my life and personal narratives from fellow dads illustrate the changing landscape of fatherhood. The old archetype of dads being breadwinners doesn't cut it anymore. We must be so much more.

Thankfully, Robert Greenleaf's servant leadership model provides an answer. Driven by personal narratives from my fellow dads plus research and resources, each chapter creates a roadmap for deeper engagement with your family, your community, and yourself. 

In the book, you'll hear from dads who've been there, failed, and succeeded, such as:
  • Ted who went on a personal retreat with his partner to mentally and spiritually prepare for fatherhood.
  • Victor who's quiet son inspired him to relearn how to get the most from life.
  • Matt who is learning new levels of allyship is for his child who identifies as trans*
Ultimately, Fathering Together is a nonfiction book that speaks to new and older dads who want to reimagine fatherhood and the relationships they have with those who matter most.

& The Movement

 

Fathering Together is not just a book title. It is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to empowering dads to be agents for positive change. This book is filled with personal narratives from our members and strategies based on their experiences as seen through the model of Servant Leadership created by Robert Greenleaf in the 1960s.

Greenleaf intended for his model to be used within business leadership, but its value translates to fatherhood perfectly. Therefore, I'm breaking the book into 3 parts.

In Part 1, "Exploring Who Dads Were and Who They Can Be," I outline how past models of fatherhood left so many dads incomplete and disconnected from their families. Then, I shift focus to highlight new models that are emerging and dads who are leading with relationships and emotional connections.

In Part 2, "Applying Tenets of Servant Leadership to Fatherhood," I break down Greenleaf's model with personal narratives and stories from my community to show how to shift your mindset and lean into emotional connection.

In Part 3, "The Power of Community," I illustrate how we build communities of support, accountability, and vulnerability that work toward equity. Through this model, we can acknowledge our challenges and create strategies for growth and success with our children.

 

My question before you go. What are you looking forward to tomorrow?

Divorce Diaries Show Creator Michele Traina

This episode is sponsored by BLENDING THE FAMILY. Do you need general coaching or a professional speaker for your next event? Here is the link to get more information at Blending The Family. Now on with the episode.

 

If you do not ask the question, then the answer will always be no. I happened to be on Instagram when there was a notification that our guest Michele Traina was doing a live video. I jumped on because I've wanted her on the podcast ever since I started to follow her on IG.

 

I dropped a comment in her feed, and well, here we are. 

 

Michele is someone that, if you get on her wrong side, then you won't be sleeping with the fishes, nope, you will be part of her comedy act. Just ask Police Officer Mike.

 

In this episode we talk about:

  • Don't have a meeting with her while you schedule your own meeting with someone else (funny story).
  • Does Michele's daughter think she is funny?
  • Is laughter therapy?

From Michele's bio:

Michele Traina is a performer, educator, and creator of multiple performance brands that carry a thread of healing through humor. She has toured around the country from Stand up to Shakespeare. Michele earned her Masters's in Educational Theatre from NYU and has her principal, supervisor, and theatre teacher certifications in the state of New Jersey. In 2013 she founded Propbox Players, a theatre company for young audiences geared towards inclusion and performance for diverse learners. Her one-woman show How to Be A Successful Teacher was in United Solo Festival in 2012 as well as multiple other performances in the tri-state area. She continued her one-woman show 'train' when she was getting divorced by putting her diary on the stage. Michele created Divorce Diaries in 2013, and it has evolved into a one-woman comedy show that laughs at life's beautiful mishaps.

A Jersey Native, Michele's work has a trademark accent and physicality to it, unlike anyone else. She's fiercely energetic and uses her own challenges in life to motivate and inspire her practice as an educator and performer. Michele's obsession with coffee, high kicks, and running literally everywhere. Her favorite role will always be a mom to her beautiful daughter, Grace.

Why talking about suicide with my son was so important, even though it was difficult.

 

Debby Waldman was born and raised in Utica, New York. She has a journalism degree from Syracuse University and an MFA in creative writing from Cornell University. She has been a newspaper reporter, a college instructor, and a radio researcher. Since marrying her Canadian husband and moving to his hometown of Edmonton, Alberta, in 1992, she has raised two children and freelanced for publications and websites including The New York Times, the Washington Post, People, Parents, Publishers Weekly, and NBC-Think. She has also written a half dozen books for children and co-written two editions of a book for parents of children with hearing loss. As the daughter of a man who died by suicide and the mother of a son who wanted to, she is passionate about promoting suicide prevention and good mental health. You can find her sharing her articles and making snarky comments as DebbyJW1122 at Twitter and sharing photos of landscapes, baking, and her dog on Instagram at debojw60.

 

"Four years ago, our 20-year-old son was admitted to a psychiatric hospital after trying to kill himself. That night, my husband implied that I bore some of the blame."

“You kind of normalized suicide because you talked about your father all the time,” he said."

Here is the link to Debby's article.

My guest is J Robert Parker, a Certified Hypnotherapist and the founder of Twin Ravens Hypnotherapy and Research, LLC.

BIO:

Mr. Parker received his education in hypnotherapy from HMI College of Hypnotherapy, graduating with full Honors from their 720-hour Clinical Hypnotherapy program. Finding inspiration in a previously unknown gift, he now operates Twin Ravens Hypnotherapy and Research LLC, an organization founded on the principles of and devoted to science-based application and study of the natural state of hypnosis. 

As a Certified Hypnotherapist, J. Robert offers one-on-one and group therapeutic hypnosis sessions as well as customized classes tailored to your specific group to teach about the subconscious and how to apply it to live your best life. 

I heard Robert on another podcast, Djscoob talking about Robert's business. My thought was Robert's business model would fit by helping parents out with his technique.

Topics we spoke about but not limited to:

  • The movie "The Secret."
  • Emotions and Physical.
  • Self-talk
  • Visualization
  • What is Hypnotherapy?

Wine is your friend. Choosing a wine is not going to be a mystery after this episode. Have I failed you yet? Do not answer that.

 

In this episode, we will finally do the show I have wanted to do for a LONG, LONG time.

 

Many years ago, my friend Zach recommended that my wife Ann and I sit down to work on our weekly budgets to have a bottle of wine.

 

Live in the home office; I sit down with a friend of the family, Bruce Gammill, who is the closes person to be a wine sommelier that I know. Bruce has worked in wine country at Beaulieu Vineyard. Whenever Bruce has suggested a wine (I am a red guy), he has never disappointed.

 

 

We talk about wine suggestions on first dates or cooking for someone new.

 

One of Bruce’s favorite wineries, and you really will not go wrong with it, is Cline. At the liquor store where Bruce spends most of his time, they recently did their weekly wine tasting of several different wines from Cline.

 

This episode was not just about wine but removing labels to describe kids. Bruce has been married and divorced two times. He talks about life lessons on raising kids in a blended family.

 

 

QUESTION!!! What wine do you buy for others??

What comes to your mind when you hear the word "walking"? What comes to your mind? Are you going for a walk? Are you taking your wing dog for a walk? Or are you emotionally "walking"?

Moving forward (see what I did there?), we will explore the concept of walking—both physically and metaphorically. 

When I go to the dog park with Otis, I spend a lot of time thinking as I walk. I am trying to get away from Headphones and be in tune with the world.

Are you walking and listening to this episode?

There is no JOB worth sacrificing your mental health. I chose the above picture because it makes me smile and helps with my mental health.

Our family dog, "Otis," truly helps my mental health.

I hope this episode can help you with prioritizing your life.

Welcome to the Parenting Tip Tuesday episode but with a different twist.

I am not going to offer your coach parenting tips; instead, how to be better at being a husband for the men out there.

You will hear three suggestions, and if you want to tweak them, please go right ahead. The three are called:

1. Show Affection Towards Your Significant Other.

2. The Little Things

3. Date Night

I hope these help strengthen your relationships and create a stronger family bond.

"I'm A Stay-At-Home Dad Who Felt Like An Outsider At Playgroup. That Has To Change."

Today, my guest is Jay Deitcher, a stay-at-home dad who wrote an excellent article for the Huffington Post. After reading the article, I had to get Jay on the podcast.

Jay's Bio:

Jay and I talk about what he is looking forward to as he is the first to hear the new last question. Who does Jay ask for help when he needs parenting tips. Since Jay is a writer, we go into his process, and I was shocked to hear how often he writes.

I am so excited to share this new episode with you. Johnny Nomad is a dear friend of mine, and he asked me for some reason to be his first guest of 2022 for his podcast.

Here is the YouTube link to our conversation.

We talked about getting better at goal setting and executing your goals. What can you do each day to move forward to achieve you're written down goals.
