ProActiveDads was built out of my frustration that the world didn’t recognize me as a parent. I was tired of being treated as second-class by companies like Target, Jif, FOX, CNN, Walmart and others who think moms are the only ones involved. I was tired of hospitals only asking my wife questions about our son. I was tired of hearing dads say “I let my wife take care of the kids”. I was tired of seeing dads neglect their responsibility to raise a mature, well-rounded, intelligent child. I was tired of seeing the family court system constantly favor mothers who were clearly not the best choice for their kids. But beyond all the exhaustion, I was determined that my son would see me for what I should be: a positive role model.

[Updated October 14, 2013] I’m honored tonight to have been elected Vice President of my son’s school PTO. I’m the only dad on the Board and have been warmly welcomed.
