I had the chance to meet Paul at M3. He seems like the perfect person to be the driving force behind GreatDad.com, being an intelligent, interactive and caring Dad himself. And he always has some great tips himself, from picking up your Lego Advent Calendar early (on my list) to how Moms can get new Dads more involved.
If you're not familiar with GreatDad.com, check it out. It's full of great resources, articles, and interesting insight on being a Dad, whether it's for new Dads, Dads of teens, or anywhere inbetween, you'll find something that'll help you be a great dad yourself.
From Paul's bio:
As a new dad, Paul became very aware that many dads today are more involved in parenting but have limited resources from a man’s point of view from which to better understand the challenges of their changing role. Thus, GreatDad.com was born. “While nothing can imitate or replace the special mother/child bond, dads develop incredible relationships with their children, and it is vitally important that they have a place to discuss the parenting process from a male perspective. Data indicates that fathers today are more involved in family life versus a generation ago, due to factors including post-911 security fears, loss of life long career job security, and increased demands on working moms and dual career families. GreatDad.com enables all dads-working, stay-at-home, single, gay, domestic partners, and more-to find ways to be involved and understand how dads are functioning as parents today.
Paul is a native of Minnesota and has B.A. from University of Minnesota, M.A. from Middlebury College, and MBA from the Thunderbird School of International Management. A published author of fictional short stories, he resides in San Francisco with his wife and two children.
