Have WE Spoiled Our Kids at #DadChat

Category: #DadChat

We had another intense #DadChat – too many tweets to follow! Thank G*d for @hashtracking and their transcript!

I just wrote a column – Entitled – that certainly address this question of entitlement. Implicit is the issue of our kids being spoiled. And, us too for that matter! Are we spoiled? Are we spoiling our kids? That is our topic this Thursday, May 10 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. PST, with co-hosts Charlie aka @HowToBeADad and Andy aka @BetaDad.

How To Be A Dad (HTBAD) is a not so much a “how-to”, but a “how-not-to” entertainment website for parents… or anyone who’s ever had parents really. Follow Andy Herald and Charlie Capen, two sleep-deprived friends with nothing left to lose but their sanity as they learn to be dads and try to look smart doing so. They’re not experts, but that isn’t gonna stop them from pretending. You’ve been warned.
