Being a dad is tricky, I know for the ladies listening, being a mum is tricky as well, in-fact, that's an understatement, there is no dad alive that wants your job.

But what does it mean to be a dad and why don't we talk about it more. What is a dads job description?

This stuff is tricky, because us dads need things kept simple - we don't like complicated. You know, we just want to know what to do.

We want to know what our job is.

We also don't want to go to parenting courses. We think that a parenting course is just going to make us feel small and useless and we already know we could be doing better we just don't want to find out how, we don't like this idea of knowing that we're no good. Parenting courses just grate against everything that we are.

So how do we work out our job description?

And what about if we're separated or divorced. Anything we could learn in a parenting course pretty much goes out the window when we're no longer living with our kids. 

How do we parent then?

Or for those that are living with the mother of our kids, how do we help our partners filter all the parenting philosophies being thrown at uthem by social media and work out what is right for us as a family?

And perhaps bigger then all of this is that us dads need something that inspires us.

We need something big that inspires us to lead well at home.

We need that, we need inspiration. We need some big idea that's simple enough to grab us and help us to be what we need to be.

Well dads, that's what we are talking about today.

In today's episode I am going to present you with a very simple idea that will set you up for success as a dad —  Hi, I’m Mike Edwards and I want to welcome you to the Culture Maker Podcast. The leadership podcast for dads.
