Dan Ariely is author of Predictably Irrational: The Hidden Forces that Shape Our Decisions - in this recent podcast, Dads Unplugged talk about his book and how it relates to parenting and being fathers.

Who is really in control of our life?

Who is really in control of our life?

When we make decisions we think we’re in control. But are we? Dan Ariely has written many books on decision making, but this one struck a chord with Kent and I. Because not only did it talk about the decisions we make on a day to day basis and how predictably irrational we are, but we saw it as a perfect carryover to parenting.

Who is more predictably irrational than children and we as parents can easily and quickly be sucked down into that vortex. Sometimes parenting resources come in different shapes and sizes and books. Check out this one as Kent and I break down some of the chapters that related directly to what we as Dads have to do every day: Parent.
