Hey Sister! Fathers – How to Be The Real Hero Your Child Needs

Whether you had an amazing father growing up, or one that caused deep wounds and pain, every one us can speak to the power of a father.  The relationship we have with our father affects us in profound ways.

In this special Father’s Day episode, Dr. Meg Meeker, author, renowned speaker, and pediatrician,  joins me in talking about how every father has within him the ability to be the hero his children need.  We also talk about how women and specifically, moms, play an important role in making this successful.  Whether you are married, divorced, or widowed, this is an episode you don’t want to miss.  Our children desperately need their fathers and this vital relationship will determine the stability they feel in the world and determine the future decisions they make.

As the author of Hero: Being the Strong Father Your Children Need, Dr. Meeker takes us by the hand and mentors a nation on how fathers can put on not only the name father, but hero.
