Dad Interviews Dad Series – MadDadSkillz
Since becoming a father, I have been able to relate to my own dad in a different way than before. Instead of the usual Father-Son dynamic there is now an element of Dad-to-Dad understanding, a shared experience.
As a Dadblogger I enjoy commenting on and analysing my own parenting style but I haven’t previously spotlighted the parenting I received. I thought this might the case for other Dadbloggers too.
So, in celebration of Fathers Day 2017, I asked some of the top Dadbloggers in the UK & USA to sit down with their own fathers and see how, or if, parenting has changed much in a generation. I sent them a list of suggested questions and then let conversation flow from there.
A different interview from a different blogger will be released each day this week on MadDadSkillz.com
Dad Blogger Five – The SAHDness
George is the writer and artist behind The SAHDness (Stay At Home Dadness), which brings an interesting twist to your average dad blog. George presents his thoughts in the form of a webcomic. Working with an illustrator myself (@paulcarlonillustration), I get great pleasure from seeing my experience with the kids immortalised in cartoon. I was drawn to George as he has some fantastically funny, and many poignant, pieces that his kids will be able to look back on with delight. The recent “I am Jack’s Freedom” really struck me with a header comic that sums up the beauty of youthful innocence and text that puts the despair of today’s political climate alongside the joy of parenthood.
