Hi, my name’s Alex Laguna, and this is my story.
I have two small children and recently I became divorced. Suddenly I found myself having to parent my kids without the guidance of my partner. It was bad enough my kids had to go through a divorce, now they had to deal with a dad who didn’t have a clue what he was doing.
I really wanted to be a better father, and that meant getting organized and doing some homework for myself – that’s how I came up with Betterdads.com. The more I learned about what my kids needed, the more I began to think there must be other fathers in the same position as me, and that there was a good chance I could help.
Maybe you’re a single dad. Maybe you’re happily married. Maybe you’re divorced. Or maybe you’re a father who is just too busy to stay in touch with your kids. Betterdads.com is open to everyone who feels that things could be better if we all started sharing our experiences.
I hope you enjoy the concept as much as I have enjoyed putting it all together.
