We ONLY Want to Build More Connect-dad Families!
Welcome, Welcome, Welcome!
If this is your first time here, thank you so much for visiting us.
I am Julian Ivey-Caldwell, Founder, CIH (Chief Idiot Husband), Dad with No Cool Points, and Chief Groundskeeper at GetConnectDad.com. The picture above is my incredible family. Laurie and I are blessed to be the parents of two young boys, Eli (5) and Ervin (3). Our story is unique in its own way; however, we are learning every day just like every parent. Even if we have no energy!
GetConectDad began as a fatherhood guide for my kids but has quickly become a place where 100,000 people read, visit, share, and collaborate on all of our platforms each month. 250+ parent/writers from dozens of countries have joined this adventure and contribute stories, advice, comments, tweets, and support for this community.
Our primary goal is to find ways for all of our families to engage in more significant ways with our kids. We call it ‘getting connectdadTM,’ thus GetConnectDad! If you want to know more about our story, please visit our about page.
