This week on the show, Chris talks to Matt Schneider and Lance Somerfeld from the NYC Dads Group. Matt and Lance talk about how they went from teaching public school to becoming at home dads. Lance also has some big news to announce right off the top of the show!
After seeing a lack of support for at home fathers, Matt and Lance founded the NYC Dads Group which is now home to some 1,100 dads across New York. They run fatherhood meetups, boot camps, workshops and more for veteran and expectant fathers.
From the success of the NYC Dads Group, they then launched City Dads Group and have now helped dads in 15 cities across the US start their own dad groups. Listening to their story and their vision is inspiring and made Mike and I want to start our own group back here in Canada. More to come on that soon.
We close out the show talking about Movember and how a large group of us dads are teaming up together to spread the word about the importance of finding a cure for men’s health issues. It was a pleasure to have Matt and Lance on the show and we hope you come away inspired to make a difference in the world.
