The Secure Dad: Year One

The Secure Dad | Year One

This week I celebrate one year of The Secure Dad. This has been such an amazing year. I’ve enjoyed engaging with other parents, helping families become safer and growing in my own journey of fatherhood. Plus I’m excited to share some news about year two of The Secure Dad.

The Secure Dad Book

Currently, I’m writing a book all about helping families become safer. I’ve been working on this project for a few months now and I’m proud of how it is shaping up. This book will cover how families can stay safe in public, at home and most importantly - seeing the world with a new mindset.

If you’re curious about the book, I’ll be sharing some insider information in The Secure Dad Newsletter. I appreciate all of the support I’ve received from my family, friends and awesome readers like yourself. If you ever have any questions or feedback, feel free to reach out at any time. I want to hear from you.
