Parenting Fo' Pas

2 guys in their early 30's chat about parenting from a Dad's perspective. Friends from school Chris Mole and Chris Powell get together each week to talk about what's on their minds, discuss key elements of the parenting journey, and usually lots of random stuff in between. Sometimes funny, sometimes serious, but always from a Dad's point of view! Advice, tips, and banter aimed at old Dad's, new Dad's, and Dad's to be. - Follow us on Twitter: @parentingfopas / Instagram: @parentingfopas / Email: parentingfopas@gmail.com
