Dadequate

One of the things I’ve wanted to do with Dadequate is point readers toward cool stuff to experience online with your kids. I’m always on the lookout for great videos that aren’t necessarily made for kids but which we can enjoy together. Now there’s a great curatorial site that exists for that very purpose: to…

Today’s Meet a Dad profile is John Blase, a writer and editor in Colorado. Most recently he has been collaborating with Brennan Manning on Manning’s upcoming memoir, Ragamuffin Grace — which I can’t wait to read. (The goal of Meet a Dad: Profile a dad and let him share his fatherly wisdom with us. Some…

Which is why we’re both excited to learn from GeekDad about a new book/project called The Unofficial LEGO Minifigure Catalog. Dr. Christoph Bartneck of the University of Canterbury…

Well, this is just crazy. If you’ve never heard of Danny MacAskill, he’s a stunt cyclist from Scotland. He’s had a number of amazing YouTube videos explode over the Internet, and there’s a new one out. This is what he does: My kids and I love watching this stuff. So far, no one has tried…

Lori Gottlieb’s recent article in The Atlantic has been on my mind for the last few weeks. Titled “How to Land Your Kid in Therapy,” it’s about a potential epidemic of generational malaise, or how the contemporary parental obsession in creating idyllic childhoods for kids may end up leaving these same kids unprepared for the…

The goal of Meet a Dad: Profile a dad and let him share his fatherly wisdom with us. Some of these dads will be well-known in certain circles; others will be largely unknown outside of their immediate circles.
