Don’t Let the HATERS Get You or Your Kids at #DadChat Thursday

Social Media

The Haters are coming! The Haters are coming! Sadly, they are already here and “they” can affect us all. One wrong step (in their eyes) and they go for the jugular. We’ve seen it happen in the public sphere when a politician or “star” says something off-color or simply makes a mistake. Boom – let’s get him! BUT, it can and does happen to our kids in the micro world of their lives. We’ve all read about the girls who have committed suicide due to HATERS in their Social Media World. #DadChat will TAKE THEM ON this Thursday, July 23 at 6:00 p.m. PT/9:00 p.m. ET.

#DadChat is Taking a Sabbatical


For over four years, I’ve run #DadChat and it’s been an INCREDIBLE experience. I only missed it a few times, managing to find a wi-fi spot on the road, in the oceans off the coast of Africa, and in so many other circumstances.

The Empty-Nest Comes to #DadChat

The empty-nest syndromeThe Empty-Nest Syndrome. We all hear about it but when our kids are young we believe it’s so far away. Trust me, it happens in the blink-of-an-eye. We are a few months away from our second son leaving for college. Are you prepared for the empty-nest? Will your kids even be able to leave home? More kids are returning home – after college – to live than ANY time in our history – I believe it’s over 80% for extended periods of time! This Thursday, March 26 at 6:00 p.m. PT/9:00 p.m. ET we will TAKE on the Empty-Nest for those in the throes of it and those that will face it – hopefully!
