Is being competitive a good or a bad trait?

People who are highly competitive usually can keep going and going until they reach their desired goals, they don't give up easily and try to be the best they can be.

Living in a world where competition is highly valued and "winning" is often directly tied to self-esteem and personal value often people perceive there to be two possibilities outcomes: to win or to lose.

So is being highly competitive always a good thing or always a bad thing?

The truth is probably somewhere in between.

We discuss whether we are inherently competitive and where we try and find the right balance.

The audio quality on this episode is a bit hit and miss...but still worth a listen.

Is the modern man a hunter or a gentleman? A manual labourer or a technophile? In today's culture the modern man usually is a mix of many things. The modern man must be adaptable.

Gender roles are changing and blending together and the stay-at-home dad or part time dad population is growing.

More fathers than ever are participating in their children's nurturing and upbringing.

The thing is that fathers and mothers come into the parenting process differently though. For the mother, the connection is biological. It's a part of her.

Fathering, on the other hand, is less so. Therefore, it's important for men to learn the skills they need to be a good dad. For some guys it's more intuitive, like kicking a football, but most guys need a coach or some direction.

DADDY EATS LAST discusses what it means to be a man and a father in modern society and all the issues that comes with both.
