Bobblehead Break: Matt Schneider – NYC Dads Group

I recently had a chance to take a break with Matt Schneider, one of the founders and co-organizers of the NYC Dads Group. With over 400 members, this is a pretty impressive collection of dads who share the common goal of being involved, nurturing, purposeful dads.

Helping Our Kids Feel Gratitude

Every so often, just when I think I’m doing an okay job with this parenting thing, something or someone comes along and shines a light on it all in a brand new way. A light that makes me stop and think. And realize I have a long way to go. Such was the case the other night when I had…

My Dad's Squeaky Clean Love

I’ve been traveling a little bit these days. Nothing fun. Just travel. As any road warrior will tell you, time away from family and home gets very old. Very fast.

Finding My John Hancock

I have to admit, it’s really an odd, new experience to be asked to sign a book. The only other time I’ve ever written in a book was when my buddy Mark Svoboda and I would make these cartoon stories in the margins of our religion book back in third grade. And for that, we got in double-triple trouble. What…

A New Day

It was almost five years ago to the day I presented my three kids—Kevin, Wallis, and Drew—with a spiral-bound book filled with a collection of ponderings and ramblings that had bounced around my head during my cancer journey. I wrote that book for them because I wanted to make sure that, no matter what, their dad left them something tangible,…
