🎙 DADicated #58 Dr. John Rosemond - Renegade Parent Psychologist on Marriage Centred Parenting & Authority

“The best advice I can give myself as a dad is to be a good husband.” Dr. John Rosemond on DADicateddotcom

Hands down, maybe the best session yet! I was truly intrigued by the things that John had to say.

John is 72, married for 52 years, 2 children and 7 grandchildren between the ages of 13 to 25. He’s public speaker & columnist on parenting and author of 11 best-selling parenting books. He has worked in family psychology since 1971 and refers to himself as an “opposing voice to psychological correctness”.

We cover child-centered vs. adult-centered parenting, natural authority and discipline, building your child’s self-esteem, teaching humanity and much more.

I found this episode super thought-provoking and urge you to take a listen for yourself. If you like (or dislike!) this one, please leave a review on iTunes. Much appreciated.


“Children need equal amounts of unconditional love and unequivocal authority.” Dr. John Rosemond on DADicated.com

John is 72, married for 52 years, 2 children and 7 grandchildren between the ages of 13 to 25.

John is an American columnist, highly sought after public speaker, and author of 11 best-selling parenting books and often seen as controversial in today’s popular parenting views. He has worked in family psychology since 1971 and refers to himself as an “opposing voice to psychological correctness”.

In this session John shares his views on child-centered vs. adult-centered parenting, natural authority and discipline, building your child’s self-esteem, teaching humanity, and being a husband and wife first and a father and mother second. We cover speech characteristics, codependency and his concept of the parenting “hump”.

The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad were:

  1. Be a husband and wife first and a mother and father second.
  2. I must not add “OK” at the end of a request to my child.
  3. One of the greatest gifts I can give my children is the understanding that they are capable human beings – not solving every problem in life, but being capable of dealing with it
