About this Blog

theupbeatdad is for dads of all kinds. But it's especially for dads who've gone through a divorce or somehow are otherwise faced with situations that make it difficult to be dads.

I've been through challenges in this area, some of which I'll mention as time goes on. So I can definitely relate to some of these experiences. The goal in all this is to become better dads, not bitter dads, from these experiences. It's easier said than done, I know, but it's ultimately better for you when you do so.

We often hear the term "deadbeat dad". But I encourage you to become an "upbeat dad", one who's enthusiastic about being "dad" and who's involved in the lives of his child(ren). That's a reward unlike any other - helping to shape and mold the life of people who will be the future of our world.

I hope that as you read, you'll be encouraged and inspired. And that your enthusiasm will never waver. Be "upbeat" about the awesome role that you play!
