Being a great father is more than simply being present in the home. It’s about being actively engaged in your kid’s lives and taking the time to have meaningful conversations on a regular basis. It’s about ‘daddy talks.’

Tony is also the author of Daddy Talks: Empowering Fathers, Encouraging Children and Equipping Families and the creator of the Daddy Talks platform, where he challenges dads to break the cycle of silence.

Tony discusses his desire to be a father his children could be proud of, addressing the courage it takes to be transparent. Listen in for Tony’s insight around talking to his kids about racism in America and learn how he leverages small wins as momentum moving forward!
