“Common Sense Parenting in a Politically Correct World”

It’s more difficult than ever to raise normal, level-headed children in this politically correct, everyone gets a trophy, “if you serve my child high fructose corn syrup I’ll sue your ass” society. Our goal should be to raise humble and hardworking individuals instead of the self-entitled princess or douche bags brOLOs that our culture has been churning out recently. On Dad Mode, we’ll discuss the ways we might achieve said goal and the roadblocks that will be in our way.

We chat with guests — both fathers AND mothers — to get their take on parenting in today’s kid glove world, as well as discuss hot button topics and common child rearing situations.

-What’s the world land speed record for diaper changing?
-Why are people naming their children moronic, made up names?
-Why do I always want to throat punch people at PTA meetings?

I’m a first time dad and have no idea what I’m doing. Fortunately, no one else does either. Let’s try to learn something together.

Purple FTW! listeners will know him as Uncle Nick, but Nick Asuncion is Andy’s cohort in non-sense and podcasting. He is NOT a father (that he knows of), but brings a different perspective to Dad Mode because while he may not have kids, he loves Disney movies.
