Rick Sanchez created a dad/daughter podcast series that captures their moments right before her bedtime. He reflects on what that has meant for him, and the three best episodes in 2015.
Recently I was told that I should “feel really lucky.”
I was telling someone about the Podcast I do with my 14-year-old daughter Sydney called ‘Seven Minutes To Bedtime’, where we record and broadcast the last conversation we have every night as I put her to bed.
“And she lets you?” was her response.
Yes, she’s 14, and yes, I put her to bed every night, and yes, we have these talks, and yes, she “lets me.”
So as I get ready for a brand new year I look back on our talks and I realize just how lucky I am to have the kind of relationship with my daughter where this is possible.
I am thankful to have had talks with Syd on gender identity, bullying, menstrual cycles, French class, Cosplay, recycling, hunting lions, homophobia, and Ho-Ho’s vs. Ding Dongs among other things…
Each week we pull together some highlights and they are featured here on The Good Men Project. The following are my three favorite compilations.
We only have two rules about the podcast…We record everything and we prepare nothing.
This experience has truly blessed me and changed the relationship I have with Sydney that will last a lifetime. I would love to hear stories this year from other dads who have found a way to connect with their kids so deeply.
