There is no perfect way to raise a child. We can attest to this! As a parent, you have your good days and bad days just like anyone else. This does not change whether you have one child or 10. Every day is an adventure in figuring out parenthood! This is what prompted this website!
We’re a couple of dads who are raising 8 kids between our two families and are still figuring things out as we go. There are new challenges and things to learn every day, which means we’ve collected a lot of stories over our time as parents.
Would either of us win a dad of the year award? Probably not. Would we say we’re experts about raising kids? Certainly not! Do we love our kids? Of course we do, and we started this site to tell our stories of being a dad.
For every story or anecdote we have about our kids getting excited when we get home from work or the snuggling to watch a movie on the couch on a Friday night, there’s a story about getting thrown up on or the kids driving us nuts. After spending a lot of time swapping kid stories at work, we decided to share them with a wider audience. These are our stories of life balancing family, work, and play. They are stories that only we can tell, these are the Tales from the Dad Side.
