There are loads of Dad’s out there. All of us came in part from one. All Dad’s are bonded by the common factor of experiencing fatherhood. For some of us, it bonds us. Despite this similarity, most of us are quite different, whether it be profession, hidden talent, parenting style, etc., we all tick differently. This feature, Who’s Your Daddyo & What Does He Do? features a different Dad each time, each filling out and answering the same questions.
Rob from The Digital Dad and I share a common love and profession in Digital marketing. On top of being a Search whiz, see what he thinks needs to be fully formed when it comes to parenting in our latest Q&A below.
