Recently I ran into researcher writing a book on fatherhood that wanted to interview dads who are actively involved in their children’s upbringing. As I’ve done before, I volunteered to tell my story. Half way through the interview I was asked why I volunteered and I was stumped! Why DO I feel the need to tell our family story?

Sharing Our Story With The World

This isn’t the first time I’ve exposed my family to the world through my writing. I have a couple of dad-blogs on the go and I am currently writing a monthly column for a local parenting magazine. I recently submitted a piece for a “collection of dad stories” book and when we were pregnant, we agreed to a few interviews that led to stories in magazines and newspapers. Nobody ever asked me WHY, they were just happy to get a story I guess.
