Reno Dads Podcast Episode 24: My Worst Day as a Dad #DadFail


In this episode, we get a bit more “real” with our experiences as dads. Scott and Josh are in the studio to talk about their “not ready for Facebook” experiences — the ones that really make you question your own dad skills and whether or not you’re cut out for this whole “being a dad” thing.

Scott recently published a story about his very worst day as a dad, and it is worth a read. Aside from the very frightening account of his daughter’s accident (thankfully, there was no lasting effect from the fall), Scott described his feelings of inadequacy and embarrassment — and thinking that he might be the only dad around with these feelings of failure. When he expressed this sentiment to the rest of the Reno Dads recently, we all assured him that he was definitely not alone. We all started recounting our own #DadFail moments, and that led to a plan to have the discussion on the podcast! Josh’s #DadFail moment is also a good example of how frustrating some moments of fatherhood really are.

Bottom line: it’s okay to question your dad skills from time to time. We’re all learning on the job, and there’s no universally accepted way to approach these challenges, and it’s okay to ask your dad squad if you’ve got questions!
