Daddy Got an Owie! Making Your Own Injuries A Lesson to Your Kids – Cast of Dads Podcast #28


Well I managed to acquire 18 stitches this past weekend, but still had enough brains to be able to participate in our weekly podcast of Cast of Dads. We did the recording just a few hours after I had returned from the ER and enduring the wonderful process of someone sewing my forehead back together (sorry for the graphics there). Episode #28When Daddy Takes a Tumble” discusses my intelligence and how it happened, but we also talk about other injuries we or our kids have had among other things.


Note: we are always looking for sponsors! If you would like to sponsor an individual episode or a series of episodes, please do let us know.

When your kids get hurt, it is a devastating thing. Your job as a parent is to protect them at whatever cost. When you yourself get injured, it is a different matter entirely. I used my “stupidity” as a lesson to my kids, reinforcing about being careful when running and not to do things that are dangerous. Since my kids are young, the lesson was around simply being safe when doing activities. Had they been older (e.g., of drinking age), my “lecture” would have been quite different. While my injury was alcohol related, it did NOT involve driving or doing anything dangerous, it was merely that I tripped on my driveway as I walked back from a neighbor’s house. Obviously my equilibrium and balance were not what they should have been. But enough said on that topic, it obviously “left me in stitches”.


We did discuss quite a few other topics apart from injuries including, one on one time with your kids, teaching them how to cook, and trying to break the summertime bad sleep habits.
