52 Steve Biddulph’s incredible insights into “The Father Wound” & raising kids

“The secret of family is to love what you have got. What you have got is better for you than what you would have made up for yourself.” Steve Biddulph on DADicated.com

Steve Biddulph is one of the world's best known parent educators and best-selling parenting author. A psychologist for 30 years, he is now retired but continues to write and teach. Steve is known for his ideas of a more affectionate and connected form of parenting.

Steve Biddulph is 67 years old, married for over 40 years, 2 children and grandchildren.

Steve explains ‘the father wound’ and how men can heal their relationship with their own fathers. There are true nuggets on raising boys and girls, toddler negotiation, the impact of men’s groups on dads and various key elements to successful fatherhood.

The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad were:

  1. All learning is relational.
  2. Stop telling my kids not to cry.
  3. Ask myself daily: who is my child TODAY and where can we meet?
  4. For my sons – I need to teach them how to drive and steer their male bodies.
  5. For my daughters – I am their self-esteem department and example of male respect.
