As a father, it can be tough to navigate the challenges of parenting and being a husband in today's society. But in this episode of Resilient Man Project, Thomas Spann, the host of Dads That Lead podcast, shares his insights into why building resilience is crucial for fathers.
Through his experience organizing father-son retreats, Thomas has seen firsthand how adventure and open communication can strengthen the bond between fathers and their children. He believes that positive masculine energy is essential in helping young men and women transition into adulthood.
But resilience isn't just about being tough. It's also about finding a balance between being a friend and a dad to your children. It's about leading in a way that is righteous and serving, rather than seeking control.
So how can fathers prioritize building resilience? Thomas suggests one-on-one coaching and group programs like Raising Champions, which help dads amplify their leadership skills. But ultimately, it's about finding a balance between being a fun dad and setting expectations and boundaries.
As Thomas explains, the tighter the connection between fathers and their children, the safer they will feel. And by guiding children without forcing them to take action, they can explore their own feelings and make their own decisions.
