A month ago we were sent a link via Twitter by one of our Parent Mentors Gabriel to listen to a show called The Daddy on Board. I know I was busy that day and I started listening to the show after finally putting the little lady to bed. The show is hosted by @MikeQuackenbush father to Elliot (2.5) and @ClaytonMorris father to Miles (1.5) and a new baby coming this year.
I started listening to the DOB (as the dads like to call it) where they talked about a wide variety of topics. The dads bring humor and seriousness to the topics they are discussing and as parents, they will make you smile and laugh and say “Oh Yes” or “Oh I didn’t know that”. They highlight parent victories, technological applications you may be using with your children, and information that is relevant to parenting.
Papaheroes on the DOB
As we approached minute 28, I heard them mention our site and one of the posts I wrote about the mentors vs. know-it-alls when it comes to parenthood. Both dads realted to the post as I had written it one morning pondering something someone had said to me about my daughter and how needy she was. Clayton went on to provide and example of how someone confronted his wife about how her son still using the bottle while shopping.
What I liked about Clayton’s comment was that people only see what is in front of them and not the work his family puts in to try and wean his son off the bottle. Listen to the show and see how Clayton would have handled the person had he been confronted instead of his wife. It will make you laugh.
Thank You from the Alliance
We would like to thank Clayton and Mike for taking time to learn about what we do at Papaheroes and letting us share our stories and victories with the parenting community via their show. If you have not listened to the show, you can download it via iTunes (look for The Daddy On Board), say hello to them via their Facebook page or follow them on Twitter.
