The mother of two daughters, the founder of a startup that sells parenting classes, has created a video series about the importance of being the father of the house.
In the video, she shares advice on how you can be a great dad in a time when dads are being cut out of the workforce and there’s a lot of talk about how you have to be there for your children.
“If we all had a dad, I don’t know, I would feel really guilty because I’m a little bit of a dad and I want to be,” said the founder and chief executive of DaddysDads, Charli Damelio.
“But if everyone had a father, I’m just so thankful for this.
And if you’re a dad that’s the best thing in the world, I hope you’re doing it.”
In her videos, Damelos focus on making sure you’re on time and taking care of the kids.
“You can’t take a kid anywhere and expect them to be okay,” she said.
“And I’m sure you know what I mean.
You have to make sure that when you’re not there, you’re still there.”
Damelios advice is simple, but it’s also a little unconventional.
“I really don’t have any advice for kids who are not ready to have a dad,” she explained.
“The best advice I can give them is be there.”
In addition to being the chief executive and founder of DadsDads.com, Damelaos is also the author of several parenting books, including, The Mother of Two Dads, and the best-selling book The Best-Laid Parenting Plans.
The founder also founded the #BeDads hashtag on social media and she’s a regular on television talk shows.
But for the past five years, Dameloos’ videos have been growing in popularity.
“People are saying, ‘I really want to make the dad a reality,’ but I think they don’t realize that there are a lot more resources for fathers and a lot less of the traditional advice on what to do for kids,” she told Fortune.
“When I talk to people, they’re just like, ‘Dad, I know how you feel.’
“It’s really easy to go from one of those dad videos to one of mine, and you’ll feel like you’re missing out.” “
What you do for your kids is what they will want you to do,” she added.
“It’s really easy to go from one of those dad videos to one of mine, and you’ll feel like you’re missing out.”
Dameloios said she doesn’t have a formal training in parenting, but she does have a lot to learn.
“So many fathers aren’t given that knowledge that they need,” she acknowledged.
Dameloios also has a daughter, but Damelis said she didn’t want to give her the wrong advice.
“No, I want my daughter to know that I’m there for her, and I’m not giving her that advice,” she agreed.
And I don, either. “
Do you really want your daughter to go through that and not know what to expect?
And I don, either.
I’m the same way with kids.”
