Last year, at this time, I hit a wall when I attended a dad conference. I looked around the room and realized THIS was not me anymore. I was older than the vast majority of dads in the room. Their issues, their lives, their passions were greater than mine as I was “moving on” given my boys were nearly grown. I briefly got depressed, but quickly got out of that self-indulgence and decided on taking a fork in the road with my next (professional) moves.
This weekend is The Grammys. So, let’s talk music and favorite artists/songs at #DadChat this Thursday, February 5 at 6:00 p.m. PT/9:00 p.m. Read the list of nominees and share YOUR favorites with us! ET. Who do you love? Sia, Sam Smith, Iggy Azalea, Taylor Swift, or Meghan Trainor (the nominees for Record of the Year)? We have our own music expert with us again, in Jason Ramsey, back for more punishment, I mean more fun!
Have you ever fought with your kids? Your partner? Okay, rhetorical questions of course! But, HOW do you fight and HOW do your kids fight and HOW do you all deal with conflict? THAT is the question and topic for #DadChat this Thursday, January 22 at 6:00 p.m. PT/9:00 p.m. ET. The topic was AGGRESSIVELY pitched to us by #DadChat regular Noelle Campbell who will be our co-host this week! She wouldn’t take NO for an answer. Interesting…I like strong women (I’m lying…no, I’m not).
I’m a Baby Boomer – I’m ooolllddd! What is a Millennial and what is their mindset? Heck if I know, but Brian Fanzo does and he’s our guest at our first #DadChat of 2015 this Thursday January 8, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. PT/9:00 p.m. ET. We’re going to look at how Millennials will influence our kids’ futures and what we parents should do to prepare! Here’s a frightening article ABOUT Millennials everyone should read!
We close out our year at #DadChat with our friend and previous guest, Ted Rubin. He and we are going to reflect on this past year and look at things we expect and hope for in the New Year. Yes, we’ll focus on #SocialMedia and its trends, but we’ll also share our personal hopes, desires, and wishes (for ourselves and our family). Join us Thursday, December 11 at 6:00 p.m. PT/9:00 p.m. ET.
