Dads walking out on their kids or not being involved in their lives is so commonplace nowadays that it’s a cliche. Uncle Nick (@nickasun) joins me as we talk about why some men feel it’s okay to abandon their offspring, what effects it has on the kids (CINNAMON, TO THE MAIN STAGE), and how we can combat it as a society. (SPOILER: We’ve got to start judging and shaming as well as setting an example.)

Be a Man. Be a Father. Go Dad Mode. | I’m a first time dad and have no idea what I’m doing. Fortunately, no one does, so we’re all in this together. Let’s chat. | 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 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.
