Fatherhood/Expert Profile

Ask A Question


I can answer questions about bonding with newborns, being an adoptive father, being a step father, issues regarding a large family (I have 6 children), positive interaction between dad and his children. I cannot answer questions regarding law nor can I answer questions about abuse. I have no experience in either area (other than the adoption of my wife's second child when he was 4 years old)

Experience in the area

My experience involves seventeen years as a father and my book, Fatherhood 101: Bonding Tips for Building Loving Relationships.


I am a boardmember of The Joy & Care-Giving Foundation Inc. a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation building schools in the Philippines.


Author of the book Fatherhood 101: Bonding Tips for Building Loving Relationships


I graduated from West Virginia State University May 16, 1981 with a degree in Business Management.
