Welcome to 2013 and Happy New Year. Our first #DadChat of the year took on the themes of my last two columns, New Year’s List: Seven Attitudes of Gratitude and Christmas and New Year’s: Best Time of the Year, 12 Reflections. We talked about GRATITUDE Thursday, January 3 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. PT/9:00 – 10:00 p.m. ET. It was quite inspiring as you can read in the transcript.

#DadChat Supported [email protected]

#DadChat – Thursday, May 31 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m., PT – was about teaching our children the VALUE of paying it forward. We raised money for a terrific cause, [email protected], with THREE incredible prizes that we auctioned off during #DadChat. You can also donate on your own whatever amount you wish, as I’m sure you’ll want to support this very worthwhile, giving, and caring organization. This is what I mean by “Repair the World,” which I so often say. One of Shot At Life’s biggest boosters, Ted Rubin, was our co-host for this special #DadChat. Read the transcript!
