Podcast: The Parenting Reset Show - Forgotten Fathers

Tess Connolly LCSW and I talk about fathers and men, “The Forgotten Father”. 

In this episode we talk about:

• How I came to work with fathers and men. 

• What “The Forgotten Father” is.   

• The importance of parents working together as a team. 

• The people that come to me for help and I give some examples of their needs.  

• The isolation that Fathers can sometimes feel. 

• How we can move forward from this and help Fathers feel involved in family decisions. 

• The importance of showing our tweens and teens how to behave within our relationships and showing up as good role models for our children.  

• The role of the Father being so important. 

• How we start to look into and work with our relationships with the Fathers in our families and also how Fathers can approach this if they are feeling isolated within their family. 

• The importance of having a conversation about the way you are parenting together. Tess and Carla give some examples of how we can talk with our partner and open the conversation.  

• The importance of checking in with our partner, that our parenting is constantly changing as our children grow.

• The importance of expressing your desires within your relationship and being open in those conversations. 

• When we shift our dynamics within our relationships after putting out our expectations and sharing our desires.

• The importance of accepting an apology when someone is saying sorry and receiving this apology with sincerity. 

• Being grateful for having these conversations and seeing a huge shift globally of people wanting to work through their own stuff and being able to connect with people globally.
