It used to be that we wondered/worried about how much time our kids spent watching TV. Now, it’s how much time on the computer/smartphone/video games! I also wonder if I spend too much time online. My family says I’m addicted. Am I? You be the judge in this article, “A Day In the Life…

A Dad’s Point-of-View: We ARE Half the Equation hit the shores of Africa, where I sent a box of books to my friends in Agona Swedru, Ghana. The photos they sent are so heart-warming that and I had to write about them and share it all with you.

Becoming a writer and a columnist was always the direction I expected to follow, as I worked with writers constantly in my first career as a television executive and producer (see my credits and resume). But in those days, I never actually set pen to paper — or fingers to keyboard.

“A Dad’s Point-of-View” began many years ago, when I was hired as a columnist for a local paper. At the end of 2008, I began my self-syndicating efforts to expand by sending out literally thousands of emails. The response was overwhelming as my column now appears in over 100 newspapers and Web sites here in the U.S. and internationally. There are sites carrying my column in the U.K., India, Canada, Mexico, Japan and Australia, and Israel.

I now have a Radio Show – The Bruce Sallan Show – A Dad’s Point-of-View – that is carried on several stations and is, happily, growing steadily with more stations to follow. Info is in our Radio Show page.

The subjects I cover include parenting, raising boys, marital advice, blending families and dealing with step-parenting, Faith and “Big Issues,” all the ups and downs of separation and divorce, as well as the general parenting perspective from a man’s point-of-view which, I fervently assert, is different from a woman’s!

I have an “A Dad’s Point-of-View” Page on Facebook and would love you “like” it and participate.
