  1. I am a fan of your podcast. This episode is just another reason why. You bring on great dads talking about things that all of us dads feel from time to time. Chris helped with a blueprint on how to talk with our kids about underage drinking. Thank you for talking about this.

  2. One of our friends who has older kids was telling me that they had a conversation on the dangers of alcohol for kids. He helped out with what I will say to my daughters, but this podcast is a great help too.

  3. As a mom I really like to see the father side of parenting. This is a great podcast and it is great to hear dads talk about fatherhood especially on topics like this.

  4. Chris not only shares with us what we need to talk to our kids about, but he shares his experiences with his kids. Really enjoyed this episode.

  5. My family and I listened to this after I listened to it myself. We talked about underage drinking and why alcohol is bad for kids. Great podcast.
