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.

Friday Review – Don't Entertain Your Kids Imperfect Dad MD Podcast with Dr Jeremy Toffle

This week I spoke about how envy negatively affects our parenting in various ways.  Have you ever caught yourself flipping through other people's vacation photos, daydreaming about taking your kids to a fantastic place only to leave you feeling like your kids and family are missing out?   Sometimes we think our kids want us to do these extravagant things for them on a daily basis to make life fun.  However, sometimes our kids just want you to be you.  As the great Roy Kent says, "Most adults think kids need to be constantly entertained.  It's bull****.  I didn't need a f***ing parade every day growing up, did you?  Truth is they just wanna feel like they're part of our lives.  Little idiots."  Truth.  I am happy to announce that I will be speaking at the White Coat Investor Physician Wellness and Financial Literacy conference this coming February 9-12, 2022.  This event discussed everything you need to know about physician finances and how to better prepare for your future.  I will speaking as part of their wellness track, which includes credit for CME!For more information or to sign up, go to https://cvent.me/01VKLZ?RefId=Jeremy+ToffleI will also be presenting at the Marriage and Money MD Conference coming this November 15-17.   21 physicians and physician spouses will be speaking about marital communication, investing, conflict resolution, intimacy, financial planning, and so much more.  You will also be eligible for up to 20 AMA PRA Category 1 credits for attending!  You can check it out and sign up for free at https://marriageandmoneymd.heysummit.com/?sc=dJdFutPx&ac=dZCH3C4tInterested in more topics not covered here?  Check out my blog at https://www.imperfectdadmd.com  to see if I discussed it there.
