Taylor Calmus, also known as ‘Dude Dad’, is a husband, father, and social media influencer who shares his insights and experiences on fatherhood and men’s health and wellness. He joined Larry on The Dad Edge Podcast to talk about the importance of finding humor in fatherhood, balancing parenting with a strong marriage, and aligning parenting styles.
As I think back over the last 10 years of being a father, I reflect on the joys and the struggles of the early days. There have been many joyous moments such as being there when my son was born, watching him smile as he woke up from a nap, his first words, his first steps and I can go on and on. But the biggest struggle through all those joyous moments was I physically could not tell him that I loved him.
Most men are extremely nervous about being a new dad. Larry Hagner and Shawn Stevenson talk about the top 3 concerns that most new dads share: money, potential changes in the marital/romantic relationship, and time with friends.
