On today's episode we discuss when we'd consider having the talk with our young boys about women's menstrual cycles. Then the Father Hoods reminisce about when they became aware of girls around them getting theirs. Are you the parent that always explains away your kids' bad experiences, instead of just listening? On this episode KGB tells about his recent experience with his son along the same lines. Ever blow up on your parents? We touch on how we believe our kids will blow up on us over our parenting styles when they're adults. We also talk about how our parental journeys and personal growth have paved the way for greater understanding/sympathy for our parents. Don't go through fatherhood alone!
