The guest – Matt Schneider
Matt is a dad to 2 boys and he’s been a stay-home-dad for about 10 years.
He’s also a co-founder of City Dads Group, a dynamic and diverse community of nearly 6,000 fathers in 23 cities across the United States. Matt works with reporters, brands, and entertainment outlets to encourage more accurate and positive portrayals of fathers and fatherhood in media and advertising.
He also hosts the Modern Dads Podcast, a bi-weekly show featuring authors, journalists, and top parenting experts.
I personally am not a full-time caregiver to our little girl, but since I work from home I am very involved in day-to-day activities and responsibilities. I also witness how challenging it is for my wife to be the primary caregiver. So, I appreciate this opportunity to chat with Matt, who embraces his role as a stay-home dad and is openly sharing joys and the struggles in this role.
In today’s episode we’re talking about:
- His journey to becoming and being a dad he wants to be.
- How becoming a dad was a bigger life change for him than getting married.
- What’s it like to be a stay-home-dad.
- Tips on how to stay connected with your partner during the first year of parenting.
- City Dads Groups and the importance of having a peer group of other dads.
- Changing roles of today’s dads.
- New Dad Boot Camps that help and encourage dads to get involved early on.
