17th Annual At-Home Dads Convention Oct. 2012

17th At-Home Dad Convention

The convention is just a few days away and I am looking forward to meeting the other At-Home Dads.  The people that I’ve talk with have been great. They’ve been great about getting me in touch with others who are going and getting a roommate for the convention.

The Featured Speakers are:

  • Dr. Rene Hackney, parenting and child development specialist and founder and creator of Parenting Playgroups. She will provide a 2-hour morning workshop for all attendees.
  • Dr. Carl Siegel, clinical psychologist and episicopal clergyman who is a specialist in relationship therapy and the emotional development of men who is the Executive Director of The Imago Center of Washington DC.
  • Dr. Brad Harrington, executive director of the Boston College Center for Work & Family and lead author of 3 studies on fatherhood, most recently on at-home dads, called The New Dad.
  • Jeremy Hilton, Military Spouse of the Year for 2012 who is an at-home dad and advocate for military families impacted by illness and disability.
  • Bruce Tretter, creator of a series videos and picture books of quick and easy meals called Gotta Eat, Can’t Cook.
  • Sheila Murphy, Career Counselor with FlexForce Professionals will talk about the transition from at-home dad to working dad

Sunday there is a side trip to the Space Shuttle Discovery out at the Udvar-Hazy Air & Space Museum next to Dulles Airport.

Even though I am looking forward to the convention it will be strange not seeing G make silly faces at me and give me the look.
