In today’s episode of The Dad Edge, we interview Justin Holland, popularly known as Juice, who completed the 75 Hard challenge with us in The Dad Edge Alliance. Juice started 75 Hard on November 1st with a starting weight of 344 pounds. He chose November specifically because it’s the toughest time to begin a challenge like this. It’s the holiday season, and Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year, were all standing in the way to test his commitment. Juice thought if he could go through this, he could go through anything. He has now dropped down to 290 pounds!

What are we supposed to do when our kids admit to doing something wrong? If we blow up, they will lie to avoid getting into trouble. They’ll be afraid to come to us whenever they have problems. When they are small, it may be a fight on the playground or a grade on a test. As they get older, they’ll have to navigate sex, drugs, and peer pressure. The risks are bigger, and the consequences are more serious. Today we talk about getting your kid to be honest with you, no matter what.

Another great episode! I have teens boys and have been thinking of ways to bring practical math or business situations to them. Abeka Comsumer Math was one avenue to assist with financial knowledge for the real world.

The Dad Edge Podcast is an amazing podcast. Each week Larry brings a variety of content, from big names to a Q&A to interviews with fathers like you had me who are doing the work to change their lives. For me, this podcast combined with the online community that Larry has established has been a huge catalyst for my growth as a man, husband, and father. If you're looking to be better in those areas, Larry's podcast is a great place to start.

This podcast changed my life. without doubt listening to this show and getting involved with the online content has done more for my parenting and relationship skills than I could have imagined. The guest are top notch and Larry does a great job of asking questions that we all want and need answered. I could not recommend this podcast enough.

Question. In this episode, Dr. Corey mentions "leading" your spouse and family. He uses an example, something like, When she asks 'Where do you want to go for dinner?'...HAVE AN ANSWER. My question is...When you give an answer and lead, why is there a discussion? Example...No, not Italian! I'm not in the mood for Italian. What's the point of leading and making a decision if its constantly up for debate? What am I missing?

Hey just heard my first Dad's Edge Podcast ... I am very impressed, and I would definitely like to link up with your guest on the Sex Addiction episode. This is a unique way of conversing dark issues that plague most men. Please keep up the great work, you don't know how many random lives you are touching.
