About Us

Welcome to the A Better Father podcast. I was a stay at home dad for the last 4.5 years. I am now getting a divorce and wasn’t able to find what I was looking for in a connection to someone else going through or having been through the same thing. So, i’m starting it now. For me and anyone else out there. This will cover parenting thoughts, tips, tricks, websites. This will cover the divorce. The bad relationship leading to the divorce. This is not meant to be upsetting, or negative. It is meant to keep me focused on the path ahead and what’s important and give you hope.
