FoF: San Diegans celebrating six sensational Summits

Doug French2017 Dad 2.0 Summit, Fatherhood on Friday

San Diego Dad 2.017

This is it, folks! The last Fatherhood on Friday before Dad 2.017, and we couldn’t be more excited. In just six short sleeps, we’ll all be slipping into something a little warmer (San Diego), loving lamps, staying classy, and speaking of life and lessons through the fatherhood lens. It’s a damn good time.

If you can’t join us, you can still join in the fun. We’ll be tagging all our tweets and photos and Stories with the #dad2summit hashtag and filming a lot of interviews and shenanigans in the Dad 2.0 Fatherly Live Lounge (via our Facebook page). And there might even be some broadcasting from the second year of Dad Voices, the spoken-word backbone of our community, on Friday at 9pm PT.

In the meantime, we’ve got lots of information about or programming on Friday and Saturday, as well as all of our truly swell sponsors (if you chose to show them some hashtag love, starting with our Summit Launch Twitter party on February 7 at 6pm PT, that would be sweet as all get-out). Without them, we couldn’t do what we do, and they have invested not only in the conference, but in modern fatherhood and the good of family. We think that deserves a pretty big thank you.

Now is the time we have been working toward, and we cannot wait. See you in San Diego!


Whether you call it a Muslim ban or a travel ban, beyond the semantics it is disrupting families.

The Super Bowl, like the NFL in general, seems increasingly full of controversies. But that doesn’t mean you should pass on talking about them to your kids.

The immigrant experience shapes our lives and the lessons we teach our children.

If Warren Buffett can teach us anything, it’s that the best way to keep money is not to spend it.

Are family outings the cause or cure of all that ails us? We side with the latter.

Teaching kids lessons about money doesn’t have to be boring or expensive. James Lopez says to work it into the routine.

Teach your kids not to over-identify themselves online, to stave off addiction.

Watch what your kids get up to. A lot of videos don’t come with disclaimers, and some things shouldn’t be tried at home.

“To raise responsible global citizens, we must instill an awareness of those outside our circle.”
