Getting Our Kids to Try New Things at #DadChat

Category: #DadChat

Dogs learning new things

How hard has it been for you – dad and mom – to get your kids to try to learn something new — especially if it’s something that doesn’t come easy? Or something they’re not interesting in. THAT is our topic this Thursday, September 25 at #DadChat at 6:00 p.m. PT/9:00 p.m. ET. Heck, do YOU learn/try new things? That is also the topic of this week’s A Dad’s Point-of-View column!

This week’s #DadChat transcript

  • Soraya Sarcos

    This # is for Twitter I guess, right? I’m planning on join you today for the chat. Very interesting topic!

    • Bruce Sallan

      Yes @soraya_sarcos:disqus – use or – helps to isolate only tweets with a particular hashtag!

  • Jerry Dugan

    Note to self: try next week. Thanks.

    • Bruce Sallan

      @jerrydugan:disqus – or @Nurph…both good! Impossible to really follow a busy chat like #DadChat with Twitter (home)!

      • Jerry Dugan

        I normally just run a Twitter search for #dadchat, but even that gets to be a challenge to as more and more people get involved. It’s fun, almost like trying to read The Matrix!

          @jerrydugan:disqus – you HAVE to use one of those platforms. We can run a tweet every 2 or 3 seconds. That is headache time if you can’t pause it or you’re not used to it. I have now developed my own mental filter but it’s taken time – I moderate, post the questions, welcome new people, answer any general questions, and post upwards of 200 tweets myself – so, it’s been a learning experience for sure. Afterward, I feel as if I’ve run a marathon!
