Jun 16, 2011
What a dad wants, plus advice for those anticipating fatherhood and a question about recovering from a “man ban.” Featured musical artist: Jeremy Horn
Being a dad is no walk in the park. Just ask Greg Smalley and Glenn Stanton, this week's roundtable guests. Both are dads who have fears, struggle with regret, wonder about the future and must balance their parenting with the past and present influences of their own fathers. Listen in as these men break down for us what's at stake when it comes to leading a family with grace, humility and a good dose of courage.
John Fuller knows something about children. After all, he has six of them: male, female, compliant, strong-willed, living at home, flown from the nest — and an adopted child with special needs. He wroteFirst-Time Dad as an encouragement to men that being a successful parent is not only possible, it's one of the best things a guy can do. In my interview he shares how to manage expectations of fatherhood, prepare for it, preserve your marriage in the process and a whole lot more.

Focus counselor Romie Hurley gives a straight-talk analysis of what's causing this listener's opposite-sex paralysis and what she can do about it.
