Every Day is Father's Day: The Power of Parental Influence with Lis Wiehl

Episode 40

Today’s interview is inspired by a popular post on THRIVE GLOBAL that resonated with Dr. Dan.  Author and journalist Lis Wiehl’s recently wrote about about father’s day and the influence her father and grandfather have in her life.  Today’s show will inspire every listener!

Lis Wiehl’s post for Thrive Global touched many readers when it went live for Father’s Day.  The influence both her Dad and Grand-Dad had on her life and career is inspiring and powerful — it will touch the heart of listeners everywhere.   

Dr. Dan reminds us that the Parent Footprint community is based on the principle that who you are and how you live are the keys to successful parenting.  To raise happy and healthy children parents must know who they are and how their own experiences as a child influence their own parenting. A happy and healthy parent raises happy and healthy children.

2)  How her career has influenced her own parenting

3)  Turning to another “family” — How Lis Wiehl managed her relationships (and her emotions) with the victims of the Charles Manson murders when writing her new book HUNTING CHARLES MANSON (www.huntingcharlesmanson.com)
