This week for the These Dads Are Doing It Right series I am putting the spotlight on dads who are looking at fatherhood from different perspectives. To me these dads are great at showing us how we can look at fatherhood in different ways. If there are any other dads that you think we should check out leave their name and info in the comment section below.
Ed Frauenheim – Looking A Fatherhood From Different Perspectives
Ed Frauenheim is senior director of content at Great Place to Work–the research organization behind Fortune’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” list. In addition, he has written or cowritten articles for Fortune, Inc., and Wired and is the coauthor of three books. In one of his books, Reinventing Masculinity: The Liberating Power of Compassion and Connection, Ed Frauenheim and his co-author say a big part of the problem is a model of masculinity that’s become outmoded and even dangerous, to both men and women. Check out that book here.
