Confessions of a Terrible Husband

Podcast Episode 92: Confessions of a Terrible Husband

Thanks so much for coming by to check out Episode 92 of The New Family Podcast where we talk to a man who says he was once a terrible husband.

Yes, my guest on this episode insists that he’s a terrible husband. I think he’s probably not really a terrible husband and that, at worst, he’s a reformed mediocre husband. Nevertheless, Nick Pavlidis has written a book called Confessions of a Terrible Husband: Lessons Learned from a Lumpy Couch. In it he details how he went from being an overworked lawyer with a family, to identifying himself first and foremost as a husband and father who is also happens to be a successful lawyer and businessman. Today Nick is also the host of two podcasts, Confessions of a Terrible Husband and Five Minutes with Dad. And he’s become a ghostwriter and coach who helps high achievers build businesses while maintaining strong boundaries around family. Nick gets real on the changes that needed to happen in his marriage and how he turned things around.

Here are some great resources related to my discussion with Rick.

Nick’s Favourite Parenting Advice
“I’ve received quite a bit because I’ve asked for quite a bit. It’s pretty hard to narrow it down to one, but I guess the common thread among them is that your kid will be as good an adult as you are. Your kids will watch you and learn form what you do more than what you say. So my best advice is to examine what you do, particularly in front of them, because they’re going to be you in about 20, 30 years.”
