#DadChat continued to celebrate its 1-year anniversary with very special co-host Guy Kawasaki, on May 17 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. PST. We discussed his new book, What the Plus! plus much more! Read the transcript as you missed the BIGGEST #DadChat ever and one of the biggest Tweet Chats, period with over 2000 tweets, over 400 participants, over a 3 million reach, and OVER 80,000,000 impressions!
#DadChat HAD it ALL on Thursday, April 17th with our biggest night ever. TY Carrie Wilkerson, parent and CEO. If you missed it, here’s the transcript!
What’s New? Where to begin? We had a GREAT #DadChat last night with @Josepf and @MilasPage co-hosting. Read the transcript of 1,200 tweets! We discussed teens and all the joys – HA – and frustrations there-in. Thursday’s Radio Show also was a great discussion on teens and college, too. I went on a fun rant of sorts in Segment Four about college. The current Because I Said So comic is in honor of St. Patrick’s Day and is beautifully drawn by @VoogDesigns. We will be offering a special caricature offer from VoogDesigns.com soon. Stay tuned. I’m heading to the mountains to get there in time for a BIG DUMP and maybe some powder!
#DadChat is again taking on teens Thursday, March 15 – from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. PST – with co-hosts @Josepf and @Milaspage. The homework is the There IS Hope column about one parent’s journey with one teen and – for the time being – the happy ending. Yes, “There IS Hope” with your teens.
When a parent is in the middle of a kid-crisis, it feels like it will never end. Kid crises are just like all crises in that they will end: more often than not, without irreparable consequences. I am a living testament to this reality as a little less than two years ago; my son was on a downward spiral that felt like it would only end in disaster.
Opposite Sex friends are a complicated issue. If you’re single, no big deal (presumably). If you’re married? Opposite sex friends are maybe a big deal. Risks of infidelity abound. My friend Sharon shared her story in The Risks of Opposite Sex Friends, a recent column of mine. If you want “Extra Credit,” read it before we tackle this topic on Thursday, March 8 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m., PST. That 9:00 p.m. ET!
What’s New? Where do I begin. First, tonight February 23 we are discussing Social Media and Our Kids at #DadChat with co-host Jure Klepic. This is an important topic for all of us especially in light of the viral YouTube video of a dad shooting his daughter’s laptop after she insulted the family on her Facebook Page! The new “A Dad’s Point-of-View column is, Revisiting Gratitude and the new Because I Said So comic introduces a new character, Dr. Blunder. I hope you like the new look for my website? Feedback is welcome…
