Art of Manliness Podcast #66: The Art of Roughousing With Dr. Anthony DeBenedet


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.
