In this episode Scott reads from and discusses two books: The Boy Crisis by Warren Farrell & John Gray; and Fatherless America by David Blankenhorn.

  1. Describe your family dynamic growing up. Who was most influential in your life?
  2. How is the health of your relationship with your dad? What has caused it to be that way?
  3. “The Boy Crisis” reveals that dads are important because, when sons see their dads, they see who they can become. What future are you modeling for your kids? 
  4. Dad-deprived kids are more likely to suffer in many areas: Grades and awards, skipping school, expulsion from school, not finishing school, joining gangs, suicide rates, drug use, homelessness, sexual abuse and victimization, and much more. Dad-deprived kids are less likely to be employed, get married, stay married, be a good dad themselves. How are you contributing to this trend? How are you contributing to the solution?
  5. How are you intentionally investing in your wife? How are you pursuing her? What rhythms do you have in place to practice a healthy relationship? 
  6. What can you do to invest in kids without fathers?
