Gentlemen, today we have Scott Groves and Patrick Barrientes talking about the stigma of being a stay-at-home Dad, the benefits of living a rural lifestyle (in Alaska!) and how to trust your spouse’s instincts as a parent when lines are being drawn in the sand with household disagreements.

You’ll also hear how he’s teaching his daughters to be strong women with jiu-jitsu and how one of them handled an older 5th grade bully with a double leg takedown and why it was the right move worthy of a high five! Enjoy!

“There are a lot of kids without dads. They’re not present. And those kids are missing out on something.” - Patrick Barrientes Share on X “Kids don’t learn through words. You can’t tell them how to act. You have to show them how to act.” - Patrick Barrientes Share on X “If you’re wrapping your masculinity in this ‘do I wear a suit and tie every day and make six figures and never see my family,’ that’s not the way to go.” - Patrick Barrientes Share on X

FRD is solving a huge problem for dads. Our culture has turned “Dad” into a joke. Go ahead, google Dad and you’ll find Dad Bod, Dad Jokes, Dad Weed, etc. Culturally, it’s a Homer Simpson mentality, and it’s BS.   

Our community is built for solid men. Men with range. Those who are badass, and know there’s still more to learn, together.  

Most guys find it hard to find “their crew.” Finding other committed men, who are successful in life, and want to put family first – these guys are rare. Is this you? 

In FRD, hundreds of men from all over the world show up for each other, to share resources and raise the bar of fatherhood (our core values)

If you’re reading this, you want to grow.  Podcasts are great, but guys… when you’re ready to stop just listening to content, and want to JOIN the conversations – the FRD brotherhood is ready for you.
