In honor of Father’s Day I have another special dad to share with you on the Living Life at Home podcast.
Today our guest is a businessman, a parenting educator, and the creator of the BioSocial Cognition Model, Thomas C. Rector.
He and his wife Shelly are the parents of 5 children, ages 38 to 14, and have six grandchildren. After nearly 39 years of parenting, they have developed a unique view point on raising children, education, and what it means to be a parent.
Formally opposed to homeschooling, they came to realize its advantages (and disadvantages) and on two separate occasions have opted to homeschool their children. Both times, working while homeschooling.
What makes this podcast really special to me is that Tom also happens to be my dad.
So I invite you to meet Tom and listen in while we discuss:
- How his perspective on parenting has changed over the last 38 years
- Why he believes parenting is the most important responsibility we have
- His take on intentional parenting and why creating memories is so important, and
- Where homeschooling fits (or doesn’t fit) into the education of our children
As a parent, a former foster parent, an adoptive parent, a Court-Appointed Child Advocate, and an employer, Tom Rector has developed a new methodology for interpreting human behavior and developing human potential – the BioSocial Cognition Model. So he also shares with us, what that is, and what it means for us as parents.
We got into stories I have never heard before, and discussed topics that he and I had never discussed before. I invite you to listen in to meet the most influential parenting mentor of my life, and gain another point of view on this journey we call parenting.
