Dear Dads: You Can Step It Up!

Hey Dads,

We’re all in this together.

The Company of Dads is trying to make all Dads better. We Lead Dads are in a position to balance our kids’ needs and schedules, wives’ careers and our own career goals.

But, hey, we understand that not every Dad can do this. If you’re traveling for work four days a week, or commuting hours each way to work or unable to control your schedule and your time, it’s going to be tough.

But frankly we’ve got some bad optics for Dads in general. Not every day is Thanksgiving when Dads think it’s okay to do the sit-by-the-TV, dose-off-while-bellying-rubbing sloth thing. It comes once a year, guys; it’s not an every-day event. And really, we Lead Dads could probably do something to help out.

Frankly some of you Dads are, like, 5 percent Lead Dads. That’s not good. We’ve gotten emails from your wives. They’re not happy. I don’t want to be a numbers guy here; I just want to say that you can do a bit more.

Can we help you? Yes.

Maybe we get you to 35 percent Lead Dad? That’s a massive improvement. You can do a bit more around the house, be a little more engaged with what the kids need, maybe cut back on your weeknight fun and weekend day sojourns? It’s going to take some getting used to but it’s going to make your kids and wife happier and your general family life better.

So, go to The Company of Dads and join us. We can help. It’s good for all of us.


Happy to grab a beer when you have time,

Lead Dads
