We ONLY Want to Build More Connect-dad Families!

Start Here!

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!  

Initially, GetConectDad began as a fatherhood guide for my kids.  Since that time, it has quickly become a place where 100,000 people read, visit, share, and collaborate on all of our platforms each month.  300+ parent/writers from dozens of countries have joined this adventure and contribute stories, advice, comments, tweets, and support for this community.

Our primary goal

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.

Most of our writing centers around “52 Traits We Want In Our Kids”; however, other topics are spread throughout the site. Here are a few of our most  popular articles to get you started:
