Hello, I’m Jason Kreidman.
Like many men, I struggled with the transition from Dude to Dad. Transitioning from the single life to becoming a married father of two, I found myself stressed out and often overwhelmed with the increase in responsibilities and demands. I was taking my stress out on my young children and recognized that I needed to change the way I was doing things if I wanted to be a successful father (and avoid a heart attack). Attempting to take back control, I took my first parenting class in 2013 and was amazed at the immediate transformation I saw in my own life.
I wanted to go deeper and continue learning, but the majority of parenting resources at the time were tailored to Moms. Recognizing a need for parenting resources for Dads, I started a local meetup group in San Diego just for Dads. The reactions to this meetup group convinced me that there was a need for this information. I proceeded to start a Podcast, and eventually started the Dad University channel on YouTube. Through my YouTube videos, I have been able to spread my message to dads all over the world.
The YouTube videos are great, but I felt like dads needed a comprehensive and structured education system. I spent nearly a year developing the Dad University Parenting Program. This is the Parenting Program I wish existed when I was facing my initial struggles with Fatherhood. Combining an intensive 8-week curriculum, weekly Q&A coaching sessions, and an active support community, Dad’s across the globe finally have a comprehensive parenting resource to become the best version of themselves.
