Parents At Work Podcast: Balancing Business, Fatherhood, and Relationships With Your Kids With Justin Batt

Fatherhood is one of life’s greatest responsibilities, and yet so many of us feel completely unequipped for the role. Many first-time and long-time dads find it difficult to engage with their children or otherwise feel overwhelmed with the pressures of work. How can we begin to redefine fatherhood and start building up intentional relationships with our kids?

Luckily, we have places like Daddy Saturday to turn to. I’m talking to Justin Batt, Chief Daddy at Daddy Saturday, about how he has transformed his relationship with his kids, even as a working parent.

Daddy Saturday is a website dedicated to building resources and communities for fathers. It started after Justin’s oldest daughter was born and he found himself as the sole caregiver on Saturdays while his wife was at work. These Saturdays with his kids became precious as he intentionally planned ways to have quality time rather than simply checking out on his phone or becoming preoccupied with work. Now, he and his children are having grand adventures and encouraging people from across the world to do the same.

Justin is going to share all of his tips for dads who want to transform their relationships with their kids. While it does require a mind-set shift and a commitment to put the phone down, building intentional relationships with kids is incredibly easy. Fatherlessness has currently reached a state of crisis, but dads like Justin are trying to take back Saturday and encourage dads to engage and take ownership of their responsibility. Yes, life and technology have their pressures and influences, but Justin is going to show us how easily we can build habits that will influence our children for a lifetime.
