The definition of “dad” has changed in the 21st century, as has the role of the Physician Dad.

By utilizing my knowledge as well as those of experts in the various fields of the 6 B’s (or core foundations), I am here to help any physician dad become the parent they were meant to be.

The 6 B’s include:

  • BRAIN – How your thoughts and feelings directly affect everything you do in parenting.
  • BODY – Healthy eating, exercise, sleep. All of this plays a direct role in how you parent and how your children view a healthy lifestyle.
  • BELIEFS – Religion. Faith. Race. Gender roles. Politics. Sexual orientation. ALL of these topics and more are derived early in life through your child’s development of their subconscious mind and belief system. Learn how YOU can directly affect this.
  • BETTER HALF – Your relationship with your spouse, significant other, or lack of a partner can directly play a role in your child’s development, behaviors, and future relationships
  • BUSINESS – Your work life directly and indirectly affects your home life. It may be the way you feel, the hours you work, or the attitude you have about your career that can all directly improve or interfere with your parenting.
  • BUCKS – Money is a tool to get to the life we desire. Understanding how your money works, the best way to protect it, and findings ways to earn more while working less can all improve your life at home.

Understanding the Difference in Your Kids Imperfect Dad MD Podcast with Dr Jeremy Toffle

I recently released a Reel on Instagram of our two boys sword fighting.  It was under the premise that I usually discourage our boys from fighting, yet I encouraged them to fight with swords and targets on their bodies.  As I watched the videos back, I very easily recognized the difference in fighting styles between the older and younger son.  One was more reserved and calculating, while the other simply berserked his attacks with no interest in hitting the target.  Correlating these behaviors to every day life, it was easy to deduce the differences in our boys and how they handle daily situations.  Stress, discipline, friends, school – each of them uses their own specific personalities to respond to these external stimuli, and if I wasn't aware of this then it would be difficult to know how to talk to them in times of stress.  We all attempt to raise our children in a similar fashion.  However, we all know at once that this is folly.  Each of our kids handles our normal mannerisms when it comes to handling time-outs, eating behaviors, bed time, school concerns, etc.   Some of our kids may thrive on the way we parent, while others may tumble.  Today I discuss these differences in our kids and how I use that to determine how to manage every day topics with them, be it school, friends, discipline at home, stress, or other situations.  Remember to SUBSCRIBE and LEAVE A REVIEW!  I want to be able to help as many dads and parents out there, and I can't do it without YOUR help!Interested in more topics not covered here?  Check out my blog at  to see if I discussed it there.  Can't find what you are looking for?  Send me an email either at my website above or at and I can try to cover it in my next show.
