It seems to be getting more difficult to find reasons to laugh today, so let us do it for you. Our guest this week on The Neutral Ground Podcast with Dr. Joe Meyer is PJ Wehry of the Wehry Dads podcast and Chasing Leviathan, both of which are fantastic shows. In this episode, PJ and I talk about a potential crisis in young men and why mentoring is important; we discuss the importance of establishing positive relationships between parents and children; we give our take on a disturbing video that caused me great concern. (the link of the video is at the end of the description). One of the questions we try to answer has to do with whether or not we truly are getting worse as a society. I like PJ's answer, and I think you will as well. Make sure you hit the subscribe/follow button, and leave a kind rating and/or comment where applicable. Every little bit helps.
