On this episode of The Chris LoCurto Show, I’m talking with the brilliant Dr. Meg Meeker, who has spent more than 30 years practicing pediatric and adolescent medicine, and counseling teens and parents. She is a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics, and serves on the Advisory Board of the Medical Institute. And we’re discussing how to be the strong father your children need. Folks, this content is powerful.
This will change your family tree, your kids’ lives, and the kind of adults they become.
In addition to the awesome things I listed above that Dr. Meeker has accomplished, she is also the bestselling author of several books, including Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters. She has appeared on just about every big national show you can thing of. Dr. Meeker and her husband Walter live in Michigan with their four children.
Kids needs their fathers. Wait, kids NEED their fathers, and they need a hero. Dr. Meg Meeker wrote Hero: Being The Strong Father Your Children Need to show married dads, divorced dads, widowed dads, and stepdads how to be a hero–a father.
“Whether you know it or not, if you’re a dad, you’re a hero. If you want what is best for your children―if you want what is best for you―you should strive to be a hero father.”
Dr. Meeker’s book is going to show you how.
