Ep 17: Work-Life Balance for Dads
Matt Schneider, an outspoken “dadvocate”, co-founder of City Dads Group, and host of the Modern Dads Podcast, talks to us about what it means to be a father to a teenager today, how to find work-life balance, and tips for a more fulfilling “parenting partnership”.
Full Show Notes
In 2008, NY schoolteacher and father Matt Schneider and his friend Lance set out to bring a balance to the “Mommy-and-Me” yoga classes, “Mom” shopping programs, and “Mothering” news segments that seemed to be dominating the parenting media. Together, they founded City Dads Group, a national network of meet-up groups for dads.
Since then, Matt has become a popular voice on parenting and, specifically, fatherhood, with his views quoted in such places as The New York Times, USA Today, and Bloomberg Businessweek. He hosts the popular podcast, the Modern Dads Podcast.
This week on the Talking to Teens Podcast, Matt reveals lessons he’s learned about how to be a more effective father and husband. Much of this advice centers around finding work-life balance and creating a positive parenting partnership.
