Parents are hypocrites. It’s what we do. A 400-pound dad will have no issue telling his kid to eat their vegetables while he shotguns a meat lovers pizza. Kids are wise to the BS though, that’s why we do have to lead by example. (Or at least not let them see you do what you don’t want them to emulate.) Uncle Nick (@Nickasun) joins the fun. The dumb PSA we talked about on the episode is posted below.

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.
