#DadChat was honored to have renowned pediatrician Dr. David Hill – aka @DadsBook – on Thursday, June 21, from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. PT. The NBA Game stole some of our “Thunder,” so to speak, but we had an intimate chat nonetheless! Questions of all sorts were asked and three lucky people won copies of Dr. Hill’s new book, Dad to Dad: Parenting Like a Pro. Next week – June 28 – we #GetUnreal at #DadChat, with @TheGoToMom!
