It is me Joël. I also am now going to refer to myself as, GayDad. So GayDad here. I felt it necessary to let the blogging world know that, yes, I am a gay parent. So that I can educate and shed light on my parenting experiences. That my stuggles, life and worries are all the same as any other dad or mom for that matter. Anyhow on to the interview at hand.
I have my next interview installment featuring DadSquared blogger Henry Amador-Batten. He resides in Florida, that state of oranges, and is also a salon owner. He and his partner have been together 3yrs now, according to his Facebook page (if I'm incorrect I apologize). They are a same sex homosexual couple who are also fathers. Henry was kind enough to offer me his insight, parenting thoughts and perspective on his blog and what started this endeavor of his. So here it is.....
Professional Title DADsquared
Why did you start your website?
What was your main goal or goals for the website?
What do you feel would be a benefit of your site to the dad community at large? Whether gay or straight?
We always say our world is changing " one baby at a time."
What are your thoughts of heterosexual families and same sex families of the male specific?
Once your a Parent, who you love or sleep with (if your lucky enough to get sleep!) takes a back seat to your new role as Dad!
What challenges do you feel that stay at home dads face?
How do you approach the concept of dads being more and more at home with their kids? Is it still an unconventional thing?
What would you offer to men who are stay at home dads as advice or insight to their roles in their family?
Thank you to Henry for your time and answers to my questions. I can see you place high value on stay at home parents, whether male or female, based on your answer references to me as a stay at home parent. I did take from this interview that 'ALL' parents have the same struggles, issues, worries and day-to-day lives. So no matter your partner, you as a parent are going through it together llike so many other parents. We all just want to share our story and have some commonality with each other. A form of educating each other on how we as individual families handled our situations and relating to one another as parents. I appreciate your time and participation in my interview series. Please check out Henry's blog www.dadsquaredblog.blogspot.com and also his Facebook page DadSquared. Until my next interview series of other bloggers out there.
Lastly, mind your manners, say 'please' and 'thank you' for it gets you a lot. I know because I speak from experience. GayDad out!
