Welcome to a very special episode. It’s Father’s Day in November with Decoding40.
All too often men are taught that showing their feelings is a sign of weakness. This train of thought makes it difficult to be an emotionally available father in general, especially during these emotionally taxing times. Vin, Alaric, and Leon give their perspectives on what it means to be a good dad.
Mack shares some life-changing news and we all tackle the question: what makes you a good dad? Is being a provider good enough and how do unlearn traditional patriarchal norms in order to be more sensitive to the needs of our children?
The guys also discuss the impact of their relationship with their fathers; parenting in the age of social media and many other aspects of one of the most important hoods in the world—fatherhood.
Tune in to hear us discuss all of this and more on this episode of Decoding 40.
