Brunst Flash Mob Singing in New York – #NYCTV #DadChat

I’m on a train from Penn Station in New York to Syracuse University, with my son Aaron Sallan, after spending an amazing 4 1/2 days in New York City with his acapella singing groups from Calabasas High School.

They were invited to perform at Carnegie Hall by Deke Sharon who is known to be the Godfather of modern acapella. On the way to their performance (many more videos from the trip and rehearsals will be coming), this spontaneous event took place. All I had was my iPhone but I did my best to capture the incredible spirit of these kids.

And, btw, they ROCKED Carnegie Hall!

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!

Wasn’t technology supposed to alleviate stress? Why has this happened? In my usual fashion, I have meticulously researched this subject and here forth my conclusions.
