Two Big Dads is all about using technology to help you be a better parent by doing 'stuff' that brings you together as a family. Technology is fun (sometimes frustrating) and can be used to do things together, rather than be individualistic, isolating or anti-social.
Technology can focus us as families, if we use it properly - get the right software, which can educate and fascinate at the same time - both children and adults!
Here are some projects we've done over the last couple of years. We're going to be doing a whole lot more - more Apps as well as doing stuff here on this website. If you like what we're aiming to do, get in touch. We might collaborate - or just discuss parenting things we might be able to help each other with. It's not easy being a parent - but we never regret the decision to raise a family, so let's all help each other do the best job we can.
