Getting old sucks! Ginger also swears by a good night's sleep and cold showers!

Deconstructing Dad Podcast

In this episode, Ginger struggles to deal with his children's anxiety and depression. Two of them visit the hospital, but it's not like it was when he was a kid. It's accepted. It's talked about. It might just be the cool thing to do among their peers? Another overcomes her anxiety and pandemic fears only to be treated like absolute crap for no reason at all. Dad wants to go killer bear, but the kid was smart enough.. or at least too upset enough to talk about it till the coast was clear. Sternly worded voicemails have been left. The hunt is on!

While driving home from work last week Friday morning, my daughter called to tell me that the school(s) were closing because of a school shooting threat. After having a few conversations with my kids, it got me thinking, what is the process schools are taking to protect the teachers, the kids and the fears that us parents have in situations like this.

In less frightening and more upbeat news, how far is too far when converting your home into a bachelor pad? Do you man cave up every room... or just a few? It's probably best to allow the children to keep their rooms the way that they are... or maybe let them update them to their own tastes.

When dating just isn't working out... maybe it's best to back burner that for a while and just enjoy life the way it is. Which is what I did... and am doing.

Also these guys.. the guys you're listening to will soon be meeting up after almost 8 years of knowing each other! This discussed and so much more! (Like Dan's rather odd ability to open his throat and swallow his food in an extremely unhealthy way)
