trunk-125x125 [1] This episode of The Art of Manliness Podcast is sponsored by Trunk Club [1]. Trunk Club takes the hassle out of shopping for higher-end clothing by pairing you up with a personal stylist who creates and ships a box filled with outfits directly to your door.

I’m a big fan of roughhousing with my kids, and we’ve covered the importance of this father/child tradition in a previous article [2] and video [3]. In those pieces, I cited real research that shows something dads already know intuitively — that there are a lot of benefits to wrastlin’ with your rugrats. Today I talk to the co-creator of the source book on that research: Dr. Anthony T. DeBenedet. DeBenedet, along with Lawrence J. Cohen, are the authors of The Art of Roughhousing: Good Old-Fashioned Horseplay and Why Every Kid Needs It [4]. In this podcast I talk to Dr. DeBenedet about why roughhousing is so good for your kids.

Show Highlights:

  • Why roughhousing has a PR problem
  • How roughhousing makes your kids smarter and more ethical
  • How roughhousing can help prevent your daughter from suffering Queen Bee Syndrome
  • How soon can you start roughhousing with your progeny? (It’s sooner than you think)
  • And much more!
