Today's episode is extra extra special for me. As a proud father, my talk here with Larry Hagner leaves me humbled, and excited to put new practices into use. The founder of the "Good Dad Project" labels himself as just another father who's inexperienced, yet motivated to improve... and Larry does just that! With more than 75 guests on his podcast, Larry gives us fair rules and tips on how to raise our kids correctly. I'm excited to say that this episode includes a main focus on being the best father you can be, as you watch your kids play their sport. If you're still too young to be a father, listen with awareness. If you're a father listening to today's episode, embrace the honesty, and take notes! Much love!
